Behind The Name
Meilė (may-luh) means love in Lithuanian. The grandfather of Meilė co-founder Sophie Kazickas is from Lithuania, not only was he a man of great entrepreneurism, he was one of our first believers. He truly saw our vision when we were an idea forming in the haze of the Hamptons summer sun. Joseph Kazickas, or Tevelis as Sophie called him, was a man who was the epitome of love, forward thinking, and taking smart business risks. In honor of Tevelis we named our app Meilė, after his love.
