My co-founder Matthias has had many years of coding experience, since otherwise we could not have published and maintained an app like 'BodyFast'. At the same time we have a team of several developers working on the app. As I have many years of entrepreneurial experience, I can manage all the other parts like marketing, content creation, building a customer support team and setting up financials, which also play a big part when creating a freemium app.
To create an experience that really helps people solve their problems without having to think how to use the app. Keeping everything very simple while helping the users to reach their goal weight and lead a healthier lifestyle - and motivate them to maintain it.
