Over the next few years, Sunil’s idea took flight. In 2009, it landed in Coimbatore, India, where Sunil spoke with a developer about an app that would allow people to sign documents on their cellphones. Eight months later, the first version of SignEasy
was launched in the app store.
Sunil started remotely working on the app with his wife, Ananda. Things moved fast, and, soon enough, Apple featured the app in its “What’s Hot” section. Sunil and his wife decided to move back to India to officially focus on turning their product into a business.
The story seems simple. Find an idea and then wait for the right moment to hit. “You just have to go for it,” says Sunil in response.
As he explained it to me, it seems like that’s the plain and simple tagline for SignEasy: a couple’s eternal pursuit to find the best way to sign documents online.
