About HICH

HICH started with a simple observation: polling and market research is time-consuming, expensive, and outdated. So we set about creating our own global social platform that would make giving and getting opinions fast, free, and fun!

HICH is on the verge of a major scale-up and in our opinion, now is the best time to join us as we build the new global home of polling and market research!
