WASHINGTON (PRWEB) February 13, 2018
Hatch Apps, the Y Combinator Fellowship company automating software development to make building an app fast and affordable, today announced it has raised $1.3 million in angel funding. This capital will be used to scale the company’s engineering and infrastructure teams, and to launch growth initiatives, in pursuit of transforming the way that software is created.
Hatch Apps enables organizations to launch their own native iOS, Android and web apps for a fraction of the time and cost of traditional software development agencies. Once customers launch their apps, they access a robust app management system that enables them to modify content and functionalities, send push notifications, make updates and more, putting them in control— no more waiting on developers.
“Having worked as a freelance software developer before founding Hatch, I’ve seen how opaque the industry is, and how vulnerable businesses are when they lack the technical knowledge to create and implement their own software,” says Param Jaggi, CEO of Hatch Apps. “By automating app development, we’re striking down barriers to entry and making it possible for anyone to build production-grade software without writing a line of code.”
Since founding Hatch Apps in 2015, co-founders Param Jaggi and Amelia Friedman have grown their team to 23 people. Hatch Apps powers the software behind global non-profits and burgeoning startups alike. The flat monthly fee makes their platform an appealing choice for organizations and individuals who can’t afford a sizable up-front investment for software development, and who want more control of their product.
“Software is an integral element to any business,” says Dr. Sachiko Kuno, cofounder of Sucampo Pharmaceuticals, Chair of Halcyon (the fellowship program where Param and Amelia first met), and an investor in Hatch. “I believe that Hatch Apps addresses a larger need for access to affordable software development, and I see great potential in Param and Amelia as a co-founding team.”
In addition to automating the app creation process, Hatch Apps automates all back end processes for their customers, such as server storage, data management, debugging, updates and analytics. Their all-inclusive pricing starts at a flat rate of $1,000/month, which includes unlimited app users and administrator seats.
