Last October we started working with our first investment, Marvel App, a fantastically innovative business that has already grown its user base from an impressive 1,000 subscribers to a remarkable 14,000 in under six months. They’ve also just launched a paid-for service of the App. We caught up with Co-Founder Murat Mutlu to see what’s new…
“After receiving our funding, the App has gone from strength to strength. The upfront capital has enabled us to work full time on developing the platform and making sure it’s built to scale and meeting the demand of its thousands of visitors.
“And it’s working, last month alone 30,000 files were added to the service by users, which is up 57% from the previous month.”
Put simply, the Marvel App is a free tool that transforms static design files and sketches into interactive App and website prototypes. What’s really cool about Marvel is that it enables anyone in the world to create a website or app prototype without them requiring a knowledge of coding.
So designers can send clients their work in real time and turn sketches, wireframes, PSDs and designs into interactive mobile and web prototypes in just a few clicks. All synced in real-time from Dropbox.
Marvel added: “The Haatch team is so experienced in building large scale infrastructures and software tools that serve millions of people each year. We not only have that knowledge at our finger-tips, but also their wide network of businesses that need our product.
“Alongside our dedication to its success, Haatch’s commercial knowledge and guidance will really help us achieve our vision of lowering the barrier to creating tech products and services and help thousands of businesses, entrepreneurs, students and creative folks to design and build the next wave of digital products. It’s exciting times ahead at Marvel.”
