Weview was an e-commerce startup that I co-founded in 2015 with Jakob von Egidy and Leopold von Waldthausen. At Weview we sought to improve online shopping by replacing text reviews which are easy to fake with interactive videos. We did so by building a platform that connected content creators with e-commerce brands through an integration on their shop pages. At our peak we had contracts with large brands like MediaMarkt and got accepted into the 2018 Techstars SAP.io cohort in Berlin.
As a CTO it was my responsibility to build the platform and to manage the team of developers and designers. I also greatly enjoyed every opportunity to pitch the product to potential customers and investors. Weview was eventually acquired by DemoUp in 2019 where its vision continues to live on.
