Hatch Apps raises $1.3 million to make software development faster and cheaper
D.C. startup Hatch Apps raised $1.3 million, and is publicly launching its platform that automates the process of building custom apps, said CEO Param Jaggi.
With the funding from a group of angel investors, the company is looking to expand its engineering and sales infrastructure teams as it adds features and capabilities to its product, said Jaggi, who cofounded the company with COO Amelia Friedman in August 2015. Hatch was a realLIST 2018 honoree and won the 2017 Technical.ly DC award for Tech Startup of the Year.
The startup’s SaaS platform aims to allow organizations to build and launch mobile and web apps without writing code, and doing so in a matter of days, rather than months if they worked with software development agencies. Once launched, the company provides a management system that allows the users to make updates and add content or features. The platform also automates back-end processes such as server storage, data management and updates.
