POSTMAN BUSINESS MODEL

Postman is a web-based platform that allows businesses and developers to design, develop, and manage Application Programming Interfaces.

STORY BEHIND THE IDEA POSTMAN

Abhinav Asthana, the CEO, and Co-founder of Postman built the platform primarily to solve this for himself and found that it worked well enough. He then decided to put it up on Chrome Web Store as an open-source REST client, and the app quickly gained popularity.

This gave him and his co-founders the necessary push to take postman up full time. Abhinav officially set up Postman in October 2014 with Abhijit Kane and Ankit Sobti and launched Postman as a product in November 2015.
