The Uppsala startup company 46elks provides an API tool, a simple service letting developers add automated SMS, phone calls and MMS to their applications.

The company recently announced it is expanding to Finland, which means the Finnish market will be the first outside Sweden getting access to the service.

”It also means we increase our local support and clearly convey our intention to offer our services in Finland for a long time to come,” Johannes Lundberg, founder and CEO of 46elks, tells Smashdig.

This week the company will appropriately join the startup initiative Swedish hotspot at Slush 2015 in Helsinki, which Smashdig has written about previously.

While the Finnish expansion is an important first step outside Sweden for the startup, Lundberg is confident more countries will follow soon enough.

Where will 46elks be in five years time?

“In five years our services will be available in several new countries. By then we’ll also have added more exciting API tools,“ says Lundberg.
