Every day, each of us trusts the reviews of others, whether it be when choosing a restaurant or purchasing products via online providers, and even the social network Facebook is increasingly expanding its evaluation functions. 
The same principle can be applied to hiking and mountain biking. Komoot has built up a popular rating system within a community of over 7 million users over the past few years  —  the Pioneers and experts program. In the lecture, the different approaches for the evaluation of outdoor content and communities will be discussed, compared and the effects will be presented.

Markus might have spent more time skiing, road cycling or mountain biking than he spent at school. At university, he shifted his ambition to physics, materials science and data analysis. When his passion for outdoor activities and love for data-driven solutions resulted in komoot's founding, he abandoned his PhD to start the company with his friends. Markus focuses on partnerships, komoot's strategy, legal and financial concerns. When he's not at the office, you can find Markus hiking
