Created by founder and CEO Brendan Alper, who was previously a former Goldman Sachs employee through of the idea about a year in a half ago. After leaving the company to pursue his passion as a comedian, the brilliant idea of the Hater app came as he was creating new material.
Brendan states to Tech Crunch, “It was just in the idea phase. At first I told some people about it – mostly people I was writing comedy with,” says Alper. Everyone had the same reaction: “‘that makes so much sense. It’s really funny, but why doesn’t that exist?’,” he explains. “It really got my gears turning.”
From that, he started putting things into place to making a comedic suggestion into the Match.com of lovers who hate.
