About Cozy Cloud

Curious about the people behind Cozy Cloud, about our history, business model, and vision? You're in the right place! Let's start with the most important and the most exciting part.

Our vision

We see Cozy evolving from a personal private cloud and app platform into a universal tool that can help you organize your life and make you more productive by automating routine tasks. It will act as your own personal assistant, providing the information you're looking for and offering advice when you need it. We want Cozy to be of use to both individual users and certain businesses as a solid foundation for building a vendor-neutral cloud platform.

Cozy will offer the ideal solution for virtual private server providers and cloud-enabled storage appliances. It will also serve as an alternative to proprietary services for mobile operating systems. Cozy is already working with several large organizations that are experimenting with the future of their customer relationships.

Our team

We are a team of people who are passionate about software development and who firmly believe in personal privacy and freedom. We also believe in empowering users by providing them free and open source tools that can help them to improve their daily lives and remain independent from commercial service providers. We are a flat organization of equal peers, with executives and a board of members advising us on the business aspects of running the company.
