HelloSIM is a prepaid travel SIM card accepted in 207 countries. The startup, which we covered before, enables users to stay connected while traveling.

HelloSIM was co-founded by Armen Ter-Hakobyan and Armenak Khachatryan. The startup’s team consists of 30 people.

“We make it possible to use quality internet connection, make calls and exchange SMS texts as soon as you reach the airport. With our card you can feel comfortable in any corner of the world,” said the HelloSIM team.

Their target audience is travelers.

HelloSIM team has noted that participation in Armenia Startup Academy gave the startup the opportunity to communicate with interesting people and gain knowledge and new ideas.

The team plans to attract investors and organize and ICO this year.

Armenia Startup Academy is initiated by Catalyst Foundation and implemented in the framework of the EU4Business Support to SME Development (SMEDA) Project, which is co-funded by the European Union and the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) and implemented by GIZ’s Private Sector Development in South Caucasus Programme.
