Our story

At hithr, we hate coordinating events through long text chains as much as you do. We believe there is an easier way to make plans with friends.

In 2019 our founder Ky Hamilton set out to solve this problem. Through the development of multiple prototypes and feedback from countless people, hithr was born. It's mission: to let you to spend less time planning get-togethers and more time connecting with the people around you.

Over the rollercoaster year of 2020, we built a team, developed our early version of the app, and made improvements based on the feedback we received. So far, we've created an app that prioritizes ease: through hithr, you can organize get-togethers, invite friends, and see when people are available to hang out. And because we are passionate about inclusivity, you can share your events with friends that are not on the app through easy text message invites.

In 2021, we are working to polish the hithr app and introduce a public beta this summer. We hope you will follow our progress and sign up to be one of our early beta users!
