The construction site calls, Obob founders off: 1:0 for the future of trades

They live what they build. They have known each other for several years from media:net’s Catapult start-up programme. They are serial founders Kilian Eckle, Moritz Schroeder and Tim Loewel. The three came together over a pizza and beer in the MediaTechLab Lounge at Studio Five to recall how a misdialed number led to a business idea for the obob photo app.

The three obob founders are…

Digiteers: one for all, all for one. ⚔

Our business idea came about…

because we kept getting calls from a construction site over several months. At some point, the misdialed number became a symptomatic diagnosis and then a case for us digiteers to act.

Obob is…

the smart photo app for trade and construction. Data-enriched photos, completed in a flash, comprehensible and sufficiently legally watertight – nothing gets lost.

We founders got to know each other…

At Catapult in 2013/2014. From the very beginning of the programme, it had always been “every third Tuesday of the month, 19:07, everything said remains in the room, what are our leads and needs, what are the questions or subjects occupying us, where can we help with experiences!“

For us, Potsdam is…

A place of creative tranquillity, the path itself can be the goal.

In 2021, obob will be…

the digital foundation of building and trade for all visual media.

We are genuine Potsdamers or passionate new residents?

We are constantly drawn to Potsdam. It’s probably the weather.

We see VR/AR/AI as having…

enormous potential for construction and trade and therefore also for obob.

Our favourite location for networking in Babelsberg is…

MediaTech Lab Studio Five 🙂

We recommend every start-up…

to attract paying customers or financing industrial partners as early as possible. Early-stage investment is still far too fragmented and costly.

This is still important for us…

Founding keeps one fit. New things animate. There is always something to improve.
