What does your brand’s name stands for? What is the story behind the name and how was it born? Any MOTO?
The name Peek comes from the main purpose of the app – to bring people closer to your experiences and give them a “Peek” into your life. Our goal is to bring the excitement of live video to everyone with fun, private live streaming for friends & family
Can you describe your daily work. Tell us more About the team and the founder.
Peek was co-founded by Ryan, Marlon & Justin Gruss and we’re now a team of 8 including the developers, split between London, Amsterdam and Prague
“Think of it like a WhatsApp for livestreaming” said co-founder & CEO Marlon Gruss. “We want Peek to be a fun new way to share live video, making it more accessible to people who don’t like the noise and anonymity of equivalent public livestreaming apps”.

What would you advise young founder and people who will follow your steps
– Get a good team together. Make sure they are all good at different tasks. And hire slow, but fire fast.
– There is no failure. Everything is a learning experience. Next time you’ll do better. Keep going and don’t give up if you believe in something. You can adapt, but don’t give up.
– Be ambitious, but not naïve. Don’t think you can do everything yourself. And make sure you have people around you that will stop you if you need to be stopped.
