Working on mountix.com, a social network for outdoor enthusiasts

It’s been quite a while that I wrote the last entry to this blog. The reason: While still running The Nunatak Group, a digital consultancy located in Munich, I got involved in a social media start-up: mountix.com, a network for mountaineers and outdoor enthusiasts. We have close to 5,000 members now, all of them active hikers, mountainbikers, climbers or backcounty skiers – and it has been quite a ride to get there. Our users can plan their trips, find partners, share photos, discover new destinations and (soon) book commercial offers within the platform. My partner in this project is relentlessly powerful Olympic silver medalist Peter Schlickenrieder. We both grew up in the same area in Southern Bavaria, close to the Austrian border, with mountains just behind our backyards. So, the project is something we feel very passionate about, as we are enthusiastic mountaineers ourselves. This fall, we plan to launch an international version of mountix.com. Stay tuned!
