ABOUT THE COMPANY

Founded in early 2015, Hanger is the brainchild of Founder & CEO Daniel Evans who traces the idea to three sources of inspiration – a brainstorming session over a game of darts, a P!nk video, and his daughter’s missing clothes.

“I was watching the behind the scenes video for P!nk’s ‘Funhouse’ tour – love her – and it showed a clip of her going into a room with suitcases and racks full of clothes everywhere.” Evans explains, “I thought ‘there has to be a better way for her to pick out what to wear’. How does she even plan what to bring when going on a six or eight month tour?”
In late 2014, Evans met eventual co-founder Ed Kniep after discussing how to position an iOS application for business. Evans used his Hanger mockups as an example of how he would approach designing a new wardrobe app and the importance of focusing on real problems. In January of 2015, the two set out to raise funds. By mid-February they had secured angel funding and started to build the closet app and the business.
