This time, it’s Goodbye

I’m sad to announce that Lima is closing its doors.

Despite tremendous efforts from the team to avoid this, we had some funding problems that we couldn’t recover from. As you know, we’re a startup — and that happens in startup life.

We’ve built Lima to help people manage their files more easily & without compromising on their privacy. It’s been an incredible adventure from day #1, with more than 60 people joining the team along the years.

We fought to build a tech that was good to our users, with no compromises. 80k+ users around the world were using our Personal Cloud products. 80k+ people trusting us to protect their most precious memories. Damn, that was worth the fight!

We’re proud of the products we’ve built, and we think the problem we were trying to solve is still gigantic today. We’re forced out, but we truly hope innovation won’t stop in this area.

I’d like to thank our customers for all the support they gave us in this journey. I also thank the Lima team for all the dedication, energy, passion and resilience they put in building our products and company. They’ve been a real family to me. The same thanks go to our investors and the multitude of partners from around the World who helped us push Lima forward.

Hopefully, for the past 7 years building this company, we’ve changed something for the better.
I believe we had a good fight.
