About Hani

A former Deloitte consultant with a degree in Chemical and Bimolecular Engineering from Johns Hopkins University, I left the corporate world to teach himself how to code and begin a career as an entrepreneur. In 2013, I founded PrivateChat, now known as Inbox Messenger, at Startup Weekend. The company won first prize there, was accepted to TechLaunch accelerator one week later, and nine months later raised a $3.9 million seed round. The Inbox Messenger team is now based in Soho, New York and recently rebranded itself as chatroom-based app, to rave reviews from our user base.
