HashGo builds apps & games that enhance social commentary on Twitter.
Everyday hundreds of millions of users express opinions about celebrity scandal, sports rivalry and world news -- in one big unintelligible stream. We pair these legions of fans and haters in a tug-o-war, keeping score on which of today's topics and trends are most loved and most hated. Rather than barking into the abyss, users can now be counted in the arena of public opinion.
Our apps are a first of their kind, marrying monetizable F2P elements with "affinity-driven" user acquisition methods and the endless content-creation of each days' news cycle.
TrendWars takes what's trending and places it on an interactive map -- in real-time.
Any hashtag or “at-handle” is fair game, including political issues, brands in the news, TV programs, athletes and more. To show their support or displeasure, players “attack” and “defend” via the uber-popular gameplay of “Match 3” (see Candy Crush / Puzzles & Dragons).
It's a cross between an intense water-cooler debate and a campus-wide pillow fight. We just keep score.
HashGo's founding team is comprised of (from left to right) Chris Halaschek on Tech; Robert Hewitt on Design; Alex Bakula-Davis on Operations.
Founded in June of 2011, HashGo’s investors include Greycroft Partners, e.ventures (formerly BV Capital), SocialStarts and a handful of awesome angels.
We're growing, but picky. We’re looking for people that are insufferably meticulous, driven to iterate like mad and intoxicated by the idea of joining the first team to unlock the potential of the commentary-gameplay hybrid. If that sounds like you, contact us.
