In Early 2013, a small start up called Swarm hired Aquatic to build their wildest dreams. Just 2 years later, Swarm had 3,000 customers, a 6 month waiting list and was acquired by Groupon. From idea to acquisition, Aquatic was Swarm’s trusted partner for engineering and design. Aquatic worked closely with the founders and the sales team to bring products to market, acquire customers, raise a Series A, and build out their engineering team. Swarm was a Silicon Valley underdog success story, competing against much bigger companies with more money and more engineers and Aquatic couldn’t be happier with the results. We wish the guys at Swarm the best in their new Groupon home and can’t wait to propel more startups to such great heights.
