Runator has a huge potential and it covers real needs, that today the big players are not doing with their technology. The team is amazing with the right expertise and have understood how to define a product and service that market fit and a scalable business model B2C and B2B that generate recurring revenue. They earned my trust seeing how hard they work and the results we have had since I joined the project that is why I decided to support them again.
After launching a new version of Runator app in December 2016, metrics such as active users, interactions, time spent in the app have confirmed the success in the differential value of Runator and how users have adapted to its new features that to share personal content and not only based on running activities. The community is, based on my criteria, unique and has a relevant value for brands, owners of technology that tracks running activities and even publishers who have interest in spanish-speaking countries and that it matches the current focus of the company. Besides this, I must say it was a positive surprise that important clients such as LaLiga, Bankinter, Lilly&Co and other have proved their interest in purchasing again a new product of the company.
The community created is, under my criteria, unique, and has a relevant value for the brands, owners of technology of registry of races, and also the publishers, who have interest in the Hispanic market, in which the company has centered its attention. Apart from the above, I must say it has pleasantly surprised me how the B2B product and business model has defined fit with large clients such as LaLiga, Bankinter, Lilly and Co, and others, who have expressed interest in contracting the product again.
