Hunch Raises $23M in Series A Funding


Hunch, a Dubai, UAE-based new-age social discovery app promoting honest and anonymous discussions, raised $23m in Series A funding.

The round was led by Alpha Wave, Hashed, and other investors.

The company intends to use the funds to launch the app across the US and further expand in India.

Launched in December 2022 by CEO Ish Goel, CPO Nitika Goel, and CMO Kartic Rakhra, Hunch allows users to engage anonymously. Users on Hunch create polls that attract votes and comments. These polls cover a broad spectrum of topics, like pop culture, gaming, finance, dating, relationships, anime, and much more. The polls abridge a curiosity gap allowing users to validate their own opinions and find like-minded individuals. So far, 640,000+ polls have been generated, garnering over 25 million opinions through user votes nationwide. 

The company is headquartered in Dubai, with offices in India and Singapore.
