I see hundreds of consumer apps every month and truthfully very few of them feel fresh and new. HQ feels different and one of the best examples of tech elevating traditional TV entertainment. Truthfully, I have a lot of skepticism about its longevity but it's early and I'm sure @rus and team have some surprises. 😊

HQ, the live trivia game-show app, tells Axios that it has raised $15 million in new VC funding at a $100 million post-money valuation. Founders Fund led, and was joined by return backer Lightspeed Venture Partners. Why it matters: Because, on Sunday night, HQ had more than 2.1 million people staring at their phone screens for a solid 15 minutes.

Twice a day, like clockwork, diehard trivia fans pull out their phones to play a live game of HQ Trivia with the hope of earning a piece of the jackpot.

It's easy to feel that a strange new future has arrived upon opening the free app for the first time.

Michael Sayman is not your average tech entrepreneur. For one thing, he's 17 years old and started making money off iOS apps at the age of 13, rivaling even Mark Zuckerberg's babe-like founder status. He taught himself to code using online tutorials he found via Google.

At age 17, Michael Sayman was Facebook's youngest employee ever. Having already launched 5 apps, he wowed Mark Zuckerberg, earned a demo spot on stage at Facebook F8 conference, and scored a full-time engineering gig as the social network's go-to teen.

In the four months that HQ has existed, it has given us many things: thousands of dollars in prizes; a loquacious, bearded "quiz daddy"; and a dystopian twice-a-day ritual. Now, thanks to the opportunism of our hyperaccelerated internet economy, it has also spurred the beginning of what is sure to be a trivia-app boom.
