Accelerating Innovation

ChimiChurri was founded in Austin, TX in 2015 with the mission of helping entrepreneurs and innovators build and launch SaaS, Marketplace, and other web applications more efficiently. By blending together a proprietary application building platform (Chimi), a highly efficient professional services team (Churri), and a unique product building methodology, we are able to significantly reduce the time, effort, resources, and skillset needed to build and launch new web businesses without sacrificing quality, ownership, or flexibility.
