About Us

Our Mission

We strive to build the next generation of virtual / remote desktop infrastructure.

Why Are We Building This?

In the midst of the Covid-19 pandemic in mid-2020, the now lead dev / founder found themselves compelled to procure a commercial license for TeamViewer to facilitate remote work in Singapore. However, they were taken aback by the exorbitant cost. Following a restless night, they embarked on a mission to create an alternative solution. Thus, RustDesk was conceived — an open-source, freely accessible remote desktop software that was diligently crafted through numerous sleepless nights. This labor of dedication and determination culminated in the release of RustDesk on GitHub in 2021, allowing it to be utilized by individuals worldwide.
