What is a Catchpoint?

In this article you will learn what is a Сatchpoint and how did we come up with this name.

In September 2008, after leaving DoubleClick/Google, we had a mission – but no company name. Thus, for the first year we were 3GenLabs – but then people kept asking us if we were a biotech company. Later, during the Friends & Family round it became clear something had to be done about that name. It was a challenging problem, but in a final moment of inspiration, Drit proclaimed us ‘Catchpoint’!

Happily we later discovered the word Catchpoint is surprisingly appropriate: “Catch points … are types of turnout which act as railway safety devices. [They] work by guiding railway carriages and trucks from a dangerous route onto a separate, safer track. ” Wikipedia.

Our goal is to help web services companies reach their clients without hitting an ‘internet catchpoint’, possibly losing customers and going off the rails.
