Our mission


Open Source Software for All

About stek.io

We love tech. We love tools. We love open source. And we believe open source tools should be available and easy accessible for everyone. Not only for people with technical skills. That’s why we’ve built Stek. Because we want installing, hosting and using open source tools to be a one click experience. Easy, fast and secure, that’s the way it should be.

Do you have a story to tell? Start a Ghost-blog. Do want to discuss ideas? Start a Discourse forum. Do you want to facilitate communication for your community? Start Mattermost. And you can do that in seconds with Stek. Over time we will add more tools to choose from. Let us know via hello@stek.io what you would like to see added to the Stek product line-up!
