Robert Vis


Founder & CEO




Robert Vis is the founder and CEO of MessageBIrd, the Amsterdam and San Francisco-based cloud communications platform offering a suite of APIs that enable developers and enterprises to communicate with customers in virtually every corner of the planet. Bootstrapped since its founding, MessageBird closed the largest-ever early stage investment into a European software company in late 2017 ($60m led by US-based Accel and UK-based Atomico). Prior to MessageBird, Robert was the founder of ZayPay, a mobile payments company that allowed 1.5 billion users to pay for goods via their mobile phones in 50+ countries. Robert sold ZayPay (to Mobile Interactive Group, later Velti, now mGage).
