CEO / CTO – Chipper Messenger

Having more than 20 years of professional experience, I have worked as a CIO, CTO, and Network Architect. In 2008, I departed from the corporate world to venture into software development on my own. In 2010, I collaborated with “Viaden Media” to create the top-selling iOS apps, “All-in Pedometer” for runners and “Cyclist PRO” for cyclists.

In 2012, I established my own company, “Beets BLU Electronics,” which produced hardware devices that could be connected to smartphones using Bluetooth Smart technology. For a few years, we successfully sold thousands of heart rate monitors and smart scales in the EU and US markets.

Between 2017 and 2018, I spent about six months working on-site in Silicon Valley on projects for global companies. In 2019, I founded my own digital agency, “Aloteq,” which has already completed more than ten mid-sized custom projects with full in-house product design and software development.

Most recently, in 2021, I founded the “Chipper App” startup with the aim of providing the world with the most convenient and secure corporate messenger.
