When Christian was 12, he started his first business, buying and selling Kinder Surprise collectible toys at flea markets. Just a few years later he met up with Fridtjof, and the two started creating websites for small businesses in their hometown. Christian currently takes care of Jimdo's operations and helped start the U.S. office in San Francisco.
Fridtjof and Christian started their first company, a web agency, while they were still in school. Fridtjof went on to found another company with Christian and Matthias, which evolved into Jimdo in 2007. When Fridtjof is not in the office, he likes to mountain bike in the Alps, kite surf, and dream up other extremely frightening things he can try.
Matthias studied at the University of Kiel and the University of Gothenburg and then went into business with Fridtjof and Christian. Matthias takes care of Jimdo's marketing. Hang gliding is Matthias's passion—look up and you might see him soaring through the clouds.
