Our Story

Long time ago

Place to place

Hi, I'm Stephen,

co-founder of Hi Right Now.

Since I was born, I’ve never lived anywhere for longer than 3 years. This nomadic experience taught me how to quickly make friends wherever I went. At the same time, floating around from place to place meant I struggled with keeping my friendships.


New York

Meet George.

In 2013 in New York, I met George. Together, we went on a journey of self-development and traveled the world. Even though we were only in the same city for a year, our friendship showed me that building relationships remotely is possible.



And Max.

In 2019, George and I made a pact to connect nomadic and remote people like us in real life. We went to Bali where we bumped into the many people who proactively chose to live a digital nomad lifestyle. There, we met Max who joined our mission.



When COVID swept the world, we entered a new era of work. Remote work has become ubiquitous.

With the majority of the workforce working remotely, we say people feeling lonely, disconnected, and having a hard time communicaing freely at work.

We built Hi Right Now to change that.

We’re all on a mission
to empower humanity
to form deep
meaningful connections.

To achieve that, we're starting from the workplace.

We built a web-app that helps remote teams build a meaningful and strong company culture via 1:1 watercooler video chats.

We’re building a world where any remote organization has the tools to foster genuine, fulfilling, and rewarding workplace connections no matter how many people they have or how fast their team is growing.

Along our journey, we’ve met inspiring superstars who have joined our mission.
