Our Story

M‑Files story dates to the year 2002, when founder and current CEO Antti Nivala started developing a document management software with a four-person team in the city of Tampere (Finland). The first version of M‑Files was launched in 2005, and four years later the company was ready to open a subsidiary in the United States (in Dallas, TX).

In 2011 the product pivoted to Intelligent Information Management, and in the following five years the company revenue grew more than 750%. Additional offices were opened in UK, France, Germany, and Australia, and in 2017 M‑Files acquired Apprento, a Canadian company whose focus is on Artificial Intelligence. At the same time, M‑Files started transitioning to a SaaS model.

M‑Files is backed by Bregal Milestone, Partech, Tesi, and Draper Esprit. It is now home to more than 500 M‑Filers, who help serving 5,000 customers in 100 countries.

Our growth story continues.
