Some information about us
Hi! Nice to see you here.
Meenit is an app developed by 20inch Labs. We are a small company, mainly in the person of Peer together with Yannick and John, who are also involved in other projects. We don't have a big enterprise or investors behind us.
Our basic app is free of charge. Optionally, the Pro version of the app can be purchased for little money. Meenit Pro is advertising-free and offers some advanced features. We want to respect the privacy of our users at all times and therefore try to take great care of data protection.
The people behind the project
"Free and independent with passion" - The guide in my life. Since I was 16, I have been working self-employed and have turned my hobby into my job. Starting with websites for the local fire department, over the years the clients grew bigger and the projects became more professional. So lately I was sitting between super smart and talented people at companies like XING, but I was supposed to be the one who would bring in the expertise for the new technology. Crazy, surreal and always an adventure. I am very thankful to be able to spend my time as a paid hobby. Also for the freedom to work where I am currently living. Whether in Hamburg with friends, in Faro on the beach or somewhere in between in my old VW bus.
In 2019 I joined forces with my two friends Jonas and Lukas and founded the community deepchange to have a positive influence on the development of our society. In early 2020 our first project "Am I In Porn?" came online. An image search engine that allows you to find and delete yourself on porn sites. Currently the only technical solution in the fight against revenge pornography.
My dream is to create our own basic income with our projects, in order to be able to dedicate our time completely to topics which bring something good to this world.
I grew up in the upheaval in East Berlin in the 80s and 90s. During that time I learned to be amazed and to embrace the new. In addition, that capitalism brings not only freedoms but also fetters. We choose both every day. I feel the freedom in creating new things. Whether it's illustrations, web design, photo and video productions, music production or just scribbles in the corner of a notepad. I want to learn everything, try it out, master it at some point. I don't trust boundaries. I've seen concrete walls fall that were thought to last 100 years. It's just a matter of attitude.
I have a great wife and two wonderful girls around me every day. It's incredibly beautiful.
Social commitment, recognizing privileges, making something out of it. Sharing. Showing my face for fairness, cosmopolitanism and respect.
In my early twenties I studied computer science and business administration in Hamburg, Germany and worked for an aircraft manufacturer. But then I was quickly drawn into the world of the Internet. For many years I have been self-employed as a web developer, together with agencies or other freelancers for clients of all sizes. Over the years I've tried to learn a lot about product development, marketing and customer service. With building Meenit everything comes together now.
I like to get involved in sports clubs and I have played team handball for many years. I love music and film. Cosmopolitanism plays a big role for me and I have spent some time in countries like Argentina, USA, Turkey and Spain. I never try to lose faith in mankind, even if it can be hard at times.
I live in the beautiful Spree forest near Berlin with my partner Danielle and our little children Finja and Jannik.
Others have dogs in their office, we have a monster. A worrible, to be precise. It puts you in a good mood and takes your worries away when you hug it tightly. Bort always provides enough pizza and Coca Cola, never forgets a soccer/football match and encourages people to relax, cuddle or dance at the right moments.
Bort is keen to watch Netflix or DAZN and eat a delicious pizza every day.
