„How can you use tech for good?“
That is a question that Markus had asked himself for quite a while now.
He started his career as a political activist at the age of 16, became a filmmaker creating the most viral German sustainability campaign in the history of YouTube, and worked for the German Fairtrade Network.
On his quest to have a positive impact he also started several app businesses to get closer to actualizing his vision.
One being Hyper, a social network for curated videos that quickly got acquired by Mic.com, a venture capital-backed company in the US.
Another being MIGHTY a self-defense app for women that got featured by renowned magazines like Vogue and Spiegel as well as becoming a favorite by Apple.
According to him, he has now come „full circle“ by working on an app that helps everyone to use their smartphone to effectively reduce their CO2 footprint.
