Founded in 2006 SingleHop founders Dan Ushman and Zak Boca met in an AOL chatroom for programmers at the age of twelve . Four years later, Dan and Zak had their own companies (yes, in high school) and then decided to collaborate to form their first web-hosting company, without ever even meeting in person!
Since that faithful day SingleHop has been successful to say the least – with 3,200 customers in 124+ countries, 500+ resellers and channel partners, and has made the Inc. 500/5000 list 4 years running. To say these two know what they are doing is an understatement. Their story of success is definitely an awesome one, so when they contacted us to talk at TechWeek Chicago, we jumped at the opportunity!
We enjoyed talking with Dan at TechWeek this year, and as one of the big TechWeek sponsors, SingleHop has their own stage as well as a big hand in TechWeek Chicago 2014. The story of the two founders is pretty incredible, and if you’d like to read about it more – check out this interview by INC. We look forward to seeing SingleHop and talking with them again in the future, so stay tuned for more at next year’s TechWeek!
