First Tuesday Strategies makes equity investment in Politexts

10 . 03 . 23

COLUMBIA, SC – Politexts, the nationally-renowned SMS, MMS, and video messaging platform, today announced an equity investment from First Tuesday Strategies and its partners, Luke Byars and Matt Moore.

Since its founding in 2021, Politexts has delivered tens of millions of messages in America’s growing text message market. The application’s public-facing user interface, similar to Mailchimp and iContact, will soon enter beta testing.

“Messaging is a massive, growing market,” commented Matt Moore, managing partner at First Tuesday Strategies. “An investment in Politexts made perfect sense, given our tech background combined with Politexts’ best price, best service approach.”

Luke Byars, senior partner at First Tuesday Strategies, added, “Our firm used Politexts one time, and we never looked back at other messaging providers. I’m excited to see what Politexts can do for other firms, agencies, and non-profits. Brad and Phillip have created a better mousetrap.”

Brad Hamilton, co-founder at Politexts, will take a full-time role at the company, leading enhancements to the platform and continuing to drive costs down for clients. Hamilton has led development teams for some of the largest telecommunications companies in the nation. 

“Scaling up a start-up like Politexts requires more than investment; it requires bold strategic thinking and even bigger ideas. I’m excited to have FTS onboard as we enter Politexts’ next chapter,” said Hamilton.

Phillip Habib, co-founder at Politexts, will continue to lead strategic efforts and client relations as the company grows.
