Posted on Thursday, July 4, 2024

About the Company is a fully remote (Singapore HQ) startup, building a low code development devtool platform to help accelerate developers & designers to launch their core web/mobile products 5-10x faster. Having raised $7.5M in seed funding from the likes of Northstar Ventures, Accel, January Capital, Golden-Gate Ventures, BoldCap and backed by founders of Dropbox, Ola, Lottiefiles, Hasura, Holistics, Wego, Paysense, GajiGesa, Ohmyhome, 1bstories, Cyber-Sierra, it launched its beta platform in January 2022.

We're young, but we've made some serious progress - our Product Hunt launch in July 2022 was really encouraging and our community feedback has been strong! We got #1 Product of the Day, Week and Month subsequently along with #1 Developer Tool and #1 Design Tool of the Day, Week and Month, and it's been a crazy ride ever since!

The founders have held CxO roles in Product & Technology at some of Asia’s top startups covering Gaming, Travel, Fintech, Healthtech and SaaS, and won multiple awards for their products globally. After years building these products, they’re now determined to build a devtools SaaS platform from South-East Asia to improve the lives of product & engineering teams globally!

At the heart of everything, Locofy's mission is to build for builders i.e. developers, designers & product managers. As builders ourselves, we want to allow anyone with any idea to be able to build world-class products with lean teams, by empowering their teams with digital steroids to move faster!

We recently launched our foundational large design models (built in house). the whitepaper can be found here
