BACKGROUND OF THE TEAM

The founders of wellnow have been friends for years and successfully launched and sold a previous wellness marketplace startup called wellmio to an international competitor in 2014. wellnow then was created as an offspring of the previous startup and because the founders saw more potential to disrupt the wellness space. Alexander, one of the founders and the CEO of wellnow, completed the Mannheim Master in Management program and graduated from the University of Mannheim in 2012. During his studies he was already active in Entrepreneurial studies with several courses at the ifm Institut für Mittelstandsforschung, where he took part in a business plan course. Together with his team members he created the product ROLLERINAS during the 6 months phase, which resulted in an award and 1st prize from the NewBizCup 2.0 for the best business plan. After finishing his studies Alexander joined a strategy consulting firm in Munich, before he went on to start his own company.
