After his second Masters degree and a few months as a "regular employee," he decided to go in a new direction and start his own business. At this point, it is easy to say that this decision, which carried a great deal of opportunity and risk, was the right decision.

In addition to his passion for Runtastic, Christian loves to play soccer and eat a lot of dessert!
