Business description: SendMe is all about fun for your phone! As a leading provider of direct to consumer mobile entertainment, SendMe offers the broadest selection of mobile subscription services currently available online in the US. Whether it's interactive mobile trivia, the latest ringtones and wallpaper, mobile sweepstakes or one of the many other services we provide, SendMe is focused on delivering the best wireless content and experiences straight to your pocket. SendMe was founded in June 2006 by three friends with a simple mission: delight our customers with the latest in wireless entertainment. We figured that mobile games didn't have to be about complicated downloads or only playable on a few of the latest, most expensive handsets. We saw that text messaging, connecting with other people and personalization were areas where we could make fun products available for anyone with a phone and a few minutes. So we started SendMe to bring those dreams to life. We are a venture-backed start-up located in San Francisco's SOMA district. Our investors include True Ventures, an early-stage fund whose partners have led investments in a variety of successful start-ups including Critical Path, eGroups, MyFamily, Plaxo and Glu. We also have received funding from Spark Capital, a fund focused on the confluence of media, entertainment and technology. Spark's founders have led investments in a myriad of successes including Akamai, Qtera, Broadbus Communications and Novatel Wireless. Other investors include Amicus and select group of angel investors / advisors including Vince Broady, founder of Gamespot.com and Scott Kurnit, founder of About.com.
Partners include: EMI Music Glu Mobile IODA Warner Music Group ;  Sony Pictures Television ;  Telcogames
