COO of AnchorFree - Empowering people through technology
Have learned the internet industry from the ground up while helping build badoo.com in Moscow and then set up the London office, constructing Badoo piece by piece from 0 to 70 million users.
I left Badoo in July 2010, advise and mentor early stage startups, helped build Dream Industries' three companies Bookmate, Zvooq, and Theory & Practice, and now work with AnchorFree to support the freedom and privacy of the internet.
I believe technology, the exchange of knowledge, and simple user flows can dramatically improve people's lives. I work every day to make this happen.
Feel free to contact Michael Geer with any world changing ideas.
