Przemek Mroczek and Igor Marczak, the founders of SeniorApp, during the talks gained our trust and built faith in us that with their determination, consistency in action, and at the same time vision, they are able to achieve success. Their current results, including the number of platform users exceeding 16,000, show a promising prospect, ”said the fund’s managing partner, Paweł Leks.
