Fabian

Fabian Gebert,
Technology & Data Science

Fabian’s father gave him a basic programming book when he was 10 and he hasn’t stopped coding ever since. He started his first software business when he was 16, sold it four years later and wrote his master thesis in physics about data mining of bio-metric information with Beiersdorf, Hamburg (Nivea). At Akanoo, he oversees the technological development and coordinates complementary industry cooperations.

Moritz

Moritz Schott,
Sales & Marketing

Moritz would have been first among his siblings to take over his parents’ organic farm in the bavarian hinterland. Alas, he always preferred software over cows so he left his village to study business and computer science. After his studies, Moritz quickly took management positions in specialized software companies such as Navigon and emailvision. Before starting Akanoo, Moritz was COO at meetOne GmbH where he was responsible for business development and online marketing. Moritz loves to sell relevant software products that deliver clear customer value. Consequently he is responsible for sales and marketing at Akanoo.

Before that, Jan-Paul worked for the leading market research company GfK where he developed and marketed an innovative reporting instrument for the fashion industry. Jan-Paul met Fabian in university through their joint interests in quantitative methods and entrepreneurship. At Akanoo, Jan-Paul is responsible for connecting current and prospective clients` needs to the core performance of our technology.
