About Hyper Online

Hyper's goal is to build the world's best avatar tools.  We're starting with VTubing as our first use-case: avatars that people use to live-stream and make content online. Avatar content (also known as VTubing) has broken into the multi-billion-view-per-month category on places like Twitch and YouTube. This has given a new group of people the power to tell stories and present themselves on their own terms online while also protecting their IRL identities. We're now the #1 US VTubing app on iOS, and have recently released an AI platform to create avatar powered companions.

We're backed by great investors over at Amazon, MakersFund, YCombinator, and more.
