Farooq Haider Co-Founder & CTO

He’s in love with the co-co-de; and hyped to promote his favorite cricket team.

In 2011 we birthed a concept called NEONSPLASH Paint-Party® that sent us on a wonderful journey covering our guests in liquid neon paint to the sound of high quality Electronic Dance Music. Over the next 4 years we played 250 shows in the finest venues in over 60 cities across Europe including an Ibiza Residency Privilege. This is where we experienced the power of word of mouth first hand which we managed to automate at scale with Hypd.

Let’s team up with your Fans and do awesome stuff!
