We wanted a fishing app that:
- Could put the right information in our hands, at the right time and place
- Would help us research our trips based on our history and that of the venues we fish
- Would help us share our tactics and tips with only the people we wanted to
- Made the laborious task of log entry fast, easy and enjoyable
We couldn’t find a fishing app that do that, we created one in Finygo!
Who We Are
We’re all anglers ourselves – bar one, and we’re working on her – and we’re all experts in our own fields.
Chris was taught to fish by his father, but it was his local gamekeeper who taught him fly fishing. His favourite spots are the Rivers Ribble and Hodder, where he targets Atlantic Salmon, Grayling and Brown Trout. His experience in leading software companies as a Product Manager and Solutions Architect means he knows how to…
Give Katy the option, she’d rather be outside running, walking her two beagles, watching a day’s fly fishing or sat on a boat sea fishing. As a Channel-Alliances Manager and Customer Manager, Katy knows how to ensure operations run smoothly. At Finygo she’s the flywheel, that’s why everything runs so smoothly!
Matt (aka Harry) started fishing at the age of four as his father was also a keen angler. He’s an avid all-rounder, from fly fishing for salmon to match fishing at some of the country’s most prolific venues. In short, if it swims he’ll have a go at catching it! Matt’s focused, analytical approach to fishing stems from his engineering career. Why is he called Harry? You’ll have to ask Chris.
Frans likes to climb, hike, ski… and pretty much anything else that involves fresh air. But still he found the time to co-found his own successful development and services business with Sean Worthington. His focus has always been to use technology to solve problems, rather than just using technology for technology’s sake. He’s a self-professed ‘geek’ and now uses his super-geek powers for the benefit of Finygo customers.
Alex got the fishing bug on our first investor meeting and having caught her first wild Grayling a few months later, she’s hooked! She’s run successful, high-performing marketing teams for many leading software companies. She’s got great business sense and a passion for creatively attracting people to a brand.
A fledgling triathlete, Becca loves to get outdoors as much as possible, running, cycling, swimming or just chasing around with her two young children. A digital marketer with 20 years’ experience under her belt, her focus is to bring Finygo alive on social media and the web.
