Jana

Jana – Co-Founder, Content & Communication

“My childhood dream has always been – my own horse! Being on a horseback as long as I could hold myself upright! I made this dream come true by doing horse trekking in Mongolia! YAY! I am a lifelong adventure junkie. The other girlie-thing I love ever since is communicating! I communicate to our experts, to mothers and fathers, to babysitters and grandparents for making sure we deliver the very best content to parents and, even more important, their children. I get to oversee a fabulous team of talented and dedicated content-magicians and editors who manage to amaze us daily with their ability to find some of the most inspriring kids activities, toys and games.”

Jana studied communication, business & media studies @ university of Cologne and Zurich, stayed at university to do some ‘serious’ work as a research assistant and lecturer, after she built up the editorial office of NetMoms from scratch and now says she knows everything from ablactation to zinc deficiency of soon-to-be-moms…! O la la!

Julian

Julian – Design & Frontend

“As a small child I could never get enough of envisioning and building, ships, planes, buildings and robots with Legos. Instructions were never my thing. Combine different elements and create something new, always using the same colored bricks, that was my passion. Even today, playing and designing digital projects is my passion. “

Julian himself is an entrepreneur and he helps us as much as possible with his free time. He has years of experience in the areas of UI design and front-end development.

“It’s important that parents see the need for further education of our kids in addition to what they are taught in schools. We can’t solely rely on the school system because it in part is educating our kids for a world that’s not existing anymore.”
