Artem Petakov
Co-Founder and PresidentLinkedin
I've been interested in the intersection between technology and psychology my whole life. My biggest passion is influencing people's everyday decisions on a large scale, especially in the cases where these decisions will greatly benefit them long-term. Wellness is by far my favorite of these areas.
