Om mig

Mit navn er Martin Hegelund, dansk internetiværksætter med fuld knald på og stor appetit på vækst, innovation og at skabe noget stort.

Siden starten af 00’erne har internettet været min legeplads, hvor jeg har udfordret begrænsninger og prøvet at skabe fede projekter. I starten var det ren nysgerrighed der drev værket, men ved et “tilfælde” kom jeg til at bygge en succes og det var her jeg fandt ud af hvad man også kunne bruge internettet til. Her fandt jeg ud af, at alt kan lade sig gøre – og at udviklingen går hurtigere end vi kan begribe eller teknisk set følge med. Det var også her, jeg fandt ud af, at man også kan bruge internettet til at skabe sig en levevej.

Siden har jeg startet en snes projekter online. Nogle er lukket ned, nogle er solgt og andre lever videre i bedste velgående.
