London low code software firm raises £150k in pre-seed funding
A London based software as a service platform, specialising in no-code app development, has secured £150k in pre-seed funding from SFC Capital.
The funding will support the growth of Hypi platform and push their new no-code solution out to users who want a simpler, more visual way of developing and launching their app ideas.
Currently, entrepreneurs looking to create an app from scratch need technical coding knowledge, in addition to a large amount of time and financial resources. Without these resources, app development has become inaccessible for many.
Hypi seeks to be the bridge that solves the barrier between the technical and non-technical worlds and that is standing in the way of many entrepreneurs to turn their business concept into a reality.
Hypi’s low-code platform allows non-technical people to create their own ready-to-launch professional web and mobile apps in minutes, using a visual tool. Users describe their idea, design inspirations and target customers to the Hypi platform and it uses this information to design a tailored template.
The Hypi platform can be integrated into companies’ existing software and applications infrastructure, meaning that it does not need to be cloud based. Current Hypi non-enterprise clients are using the platform to develop apps in a range of sectors, including accounting, agriculture, hospitality and the health sector.
During the Covid-19 lockdown, Hypi worked with hospitals to prevent staff from getting infected from touching infected paperwork by replacing the paper process with an app.
Courtney Robinson, Hypi co-founder and CEO added, “We’re excited to be partnering with such a renowned institution as SFC Capital in our efforts to make app development accessible to everyone.
“The day when my non-technical mum can design and launch her own tech startup without a technical co-founder is coming and this helps put us one step closer to that”.
