123ContactForm was founded by Florin Cornianu and Tudor Bastea in 2008. It is bred in Timisoara Software
Business Incubator, under the nourishing mentorship of Radu Ticiu on the Romanian side and George M.
Etheridge on the American bandwagon.
The company evolved from a promising startup to a global service with an increasing success in the US and
European markets. This ascendance was stimulated by a local angel investor, Adrian Gheara, whose
contribution in 2011 led to a complete redesign of the platform to the shape it is today.
123ContactForm is committed to business responsibility and social involvement. With a freemium model, the
company strives to offer customers the best value for every service plan. NPOs and all organizations that have
the mission of doing good deeds for the community receive a substantial discount when they upgrade for
any premium plan with 123ContactForm.
    Manifesto
    The mission of 123ContactForm is to provide quality and cost-effective solutions

Our team
Florin Cornianu and Tudor Bastea, the two co-founders of 123ContactForm, met during
college when both studied Computer Science in Timisoara. The two started doing their
own business together at the age of 21, as Windows apps developers.
The idea of 123ContactForm came at a point where Florin and Tudor needed a form
generator for their own use. They quickly realized it was not only them who lacked a
reliable form building solution, but the whole market itself, so the two decided to create it
on their own. Next came a genuine chance meeting with Radu Ticiu at Timisoara Software
Business Incubator, which now sustains the growth of 123ContactForm. And… the rest is
history.

  “It’s always exciting to see what 123ContactForm is going to do next. They are
  passionate about their product and it really shows. Not only are they constantly
  making upgrades to their product and their killer website, but the forms are easy
  to style and embed, they are secure, and most importantly - the forms always
  work. As if all that were not enough, you even have the option of using a drop      Dixie Haynes
