Our
team


No one remembers how we decided to do it together, but we do remember having a drink in a bar. As a team we debuted in early 2015 when we joined IIDF acceleration program and did our best to take AppFollow off the ground.

First concept of AppFollow as a competitive analysis tool appeared to be too complicated. We started think of ourselves as a monitoring tool. And this simple idea helped us a lot in winning customers all over the world.

Our international experience started with graduating from Startup Sauna accelerator in November, 2015. Since that time we grew from three co-founders to ten colleagues and like-minded people.

Even though Dima has quite a short story of working together with Anatoly in TochkaK, they were keeping in touch since 2013. Dima is responsible for web apps support and development, particularly he is part of Kinoplan team. He co-stars in AppFollow as a front-end developer, creating and constantly improving all interfaces our customers deal with.
