Episode 13 - Founder Insights Podcast
Keith Rumjahn, the founder and CEO of OliveX, talks about how he went from studying computer science to making a successful software that was backed by Nike and used in a Kevin Durant movie. He talks about how OliveX used exercise, movement, and Web3 technology to make fitness apps like "Zombies Run," an audio running game that has been downloaded more than 10 million times. He goes on to explain why Zombies Run is appealing to the 95% of new fitness fans who find traditional fitness apps hard to use. Keith thinks that "Fitness 4.0," where training is done like a game, is the way of the future.
