About Hangry

Hangry, a pioneer in higher education mobile ordering, offers a robust platform for campus-wide loyalty rewards, push messaging, automated marketing, intelligent upselling, and user feedback.

Their problem

As McMaster University students, the Hangry founders turned to Innovation Factory for assistance to launch their company and build their campus dining app.

Our solution

Innovation Factory mentored Hangry to develop their robust platform and facilitated introductions to universities, including McMaster, for their first go-to-market. Innovation supported the founders to hone their pitch skills that helped them win pitch competitions and secure their initial funding round.

Company success

Hangry grew by recruiting more higher education institutions and continued to utilize Innovation Factory’s mentorship. In 2022, Transact Campus, a leading provider of payment solutions acquired Hangry, after having processed over 200 million dollars through their system.


“Innovation Factory supported us during the early days of our company with access to mentors, connection to funding, and their pitch competition Lions Lair. Later, as our company was scaling, Innovation Factory supported us with a different group of mentors to help get us through some thorny aspects of our business and ultimately supported us in getting our business acquired.”

– Fabian Raso, Founder
