A Tale of 2 Card Games
Hatch Apps was founded by Param Jaggi and Amelia Friedman in 2015 with the vision to build the go-to place for custom software. The duo originally launched and sold 4,000 units of The 2016 Election Game to fund the product development.
The original product, a no-code mobile app builder, launched in late 2017. After participating in the Y Combinator fellowship, the company raised $2.2 million from Morgan Stanley, Revolution Rise of the Rest, January Ventures, and several other notable investors. Using the same core technology, Hatch Apps has expanded to be a suite of no-code products designed to democratize the software industry.
To self-fund the company's growth, the team launched another card game called Done With 2020. The game sold 35,000 units to people around the world. Now, all customers, investors, and employees get a copy of both card games.
Hatch Apps is a remote-first company with team members in the US, Turkey, India, Pakistan, and Bangladesh.
