Numberless’s board will welcome Catamaran’s Jennifer O’Brien. The business will double its team size and release its beta version early this fall using the extra cash.

“Due to the proliferation of mobile devices, phone numbers have become the convenient, de facto means of connecting for any purpose: a one-off delivery, a brief business query, a check-in with a friend. The value of these connections varies widely, though, so it feels incongruous that each receives the same permanent hook into our devices and lives – i.e., our phone number. Port solves this by removing phone numbers from the process of connecting and communicating with others,” said Aniruddh Balasubramanian, co-founder and CEO.

The port is still undergoing beta testing. A public version is anticipated to go live in November, according to a formal announcement. Aniruddh Balasubramanian and Abhinav N created the messaging app Port in 2023.

“Port represents a new class of communication tools that restore boundaries around who can access users on their phones and when. In fact, I foresee a future where people are more willing to form new connections via Port because of this design,” said Deepak Padaki, president, Catamaran.
