About us. 

Our one-line pitch is...
More than 30 million presentations are held each day. We make them more interactive and engaging. feedbackr is a cloud-based live audience interaction tool for your mobile device.

The core of our team...
Karin Pichler and Christian Haintz are the founders, managers and software development brains of feedbackr. Cornelia Lukas and Hannah Hauser are our creatives who support us in all design matters.

Our office in looks like...
a cosy factory building. It’s the largest coworking space in Graz. We love our huge pin board. It is our team’s collective brain where we collect all sketches and ideas of recent activities. In the center of the board is a screen which monitors the load and health of the feedbackr cloud-servi

The person that inspires us most...
is the greek philosopher Socrates because he was one of the first speakers who did audience interaction right. feedbackr uses modern technologies to apply his socratic method easily and to a wide range of audiences.

About our journey so far. 

Before we started we were...
students at the University of Technology in Graz with lots of ideas and two other startups. The first one was successful, the second failed. And as all good things come in threes we expect feedbackr to be successful as well.

We received our initial capital through...
savings and hard work for our software development agency where we program for other web and mobile startups.

Our most difficult time so far was...
last spring, when we transformed our prototypes to a real product and had to find a name for it. It took us two months until we were happy with it and people associated the right things when seeing the name. During the process we collected a list with roughly 50 names.

About little steps and big dreams. 

The one thing, we couldn't go on without is the great community in our coworking space which makes the place feel like home.

Our next target is...
Thankfully we are not dependent on it but if we coincidentally meet an investor who understands our vision, believes in it and has the same goals, we won’t say no. Such a partner would definitely help feedbackr to grow faster in its market. If not we will be doing feedbackr in bootstrapping mod

If you say investment we say...
Thankfully we are not dependent on it but if we coincidentally meet an investor who understands our vision, believes in it and has the same goals, we won’t say no. Such a partner would definitely help feedbackr to grow faster in its market. If not we will be doing feedbackr in bootstrapping mod

The one thing, we couldn't go on without is...
the great community in our coworking space which makes the place feel like home. Almost every day we are having lunch together in our huge kitchen. There is a lot of experience exchange across all professions which leads to a better understanding of problems and therefore better solutions.

Our current development state is...
Implementation

In five years we want to be...
as happy and satisfied as today with what we do. We want to be a company which is driven by a great team. We would love feedbackr to have helped a lot of lecturers and moderators around the world to make presentations, lectures, talks and events more interactive, interesting and engaging.
