Our History

Tracing The Footsteps: A Journey Through Our Past

InApp is a testament to the power of big dreams and relentless determination. Our founders, a group of three experts, had a simple goal in mind when they first started the company – to create a world-class technology firm that would change the way businesses leverage technology to streamline their operations. With several years of big 5 consulting experience under their belts, they set out to make their mark on the industry.

The company opened its first office space in 2000 at Technopark Trivandrum, a hub for technology and innovation in Kerala, India. The establishment of this office marked a significant milestone for the company and reflected the team’s hard work and dedication. In addition to its presence in India, InApp also established a global office in Palo Alto, CA, further expanding its reach and demonstrating its commitment to delivering cutting-edge technology solutions to clients worldwide.

Since 2000, InApp has delivered high-quality solutions to over 500 clients, including global brands, Silicon Valley founders, startups, SMBs, and more. Our experienced development teams have provided process-driven project management and technical expertise for over two decades.

Today, the company is a global player with a team of 400+ software engineers working across three office spaces in Trivandrum and Kochi, and global offices in the United States and Japan. This incredible growth is a testament to the passion and drive of our founders, who continue to lead the company with a strong vision and an unwavering commitment to excellence.
