The Journey of starting Truepush began in early 2017 when both the founders Ravi and Manoj met at the Startup Leadership Programme in Hyderabad where they came up with the idea of starting a tool that helps the brands in their growth and user engagement.
The duo did thorough research and found there are no free products in the market for push notifications.
This made them realize that marketing and customer retention are two important aspects of brand building and companies spent a decent amount on the building and using various paid tools. Thus, they introduced a completely free – forever concept of launching their product in 2018 at Product Hunt.
