About Us

Chargify has built a strong, sustainable company in a short amount of time. It took just three
short years from conceptualization to profitability, and we continue to grow and improve.

In 2009, the founders of Grasshopper saw the need for an online service to help businesses manage their recurring-revenue customers. Chargify started out as a team within Grasshopper — small and focused on the core needs of our early users.

Throughout 2009 and 2010, we grew our team, our features, and matched our pricing to our increasingly advanced product. Those initial years moved quickly, and our main focus was finding the right markets for our product while focusing on the necessity of emerging as a profitable company.

In 2011, we received an investment from Mark Cuban, owner of the Dallas Mavericks and one of the investors on the TV show “Shark Tank.” Mark’s investment helped us push forward just a bit ahead of revenues. At that time, we formed Chargify LLC as a separate company from Grasshopper.

We continued to build new features, and in 2012, we reached profitability with a nice portion of the initial capital from Mark still at hand. This is, of course, an important milestone because profitability and sustainability are essential for a stable business that our investors, clients, and consumers can trust.
