About our company

Our story

Founded in 2013, Signal Vine was born out of Harvard University research conducted on reducing "summer melt" through advisor-led text nudges. With a proven use case to engage students, our team combined expertise in software and mobile technology to build a product that has grown into higher education's most impactful two-way text messaging platform. Today, hundreds of institutions are using Signal Vine to engage students, staff and employees. From getting students to college and hitting enrollment goals, to retaining students and up-skilling the workforce, our customers are reaching their goals with help from the Signal Vine team. We believe in the power of conversation to build communities and to strengthen the opportunity for all to succeed.
