Andrey Andreev started his career in a different sector of the technology field. He started out in 1999 working for a company called Spylog. Spylog is a business that does web tracking.
It was used to help webmasters to track people who are visiting their websites. Andrey Andreev knew as a child that he will be in the technology industry. The first form of communication technology that he built was at the age of 10 years old. He used a different part of electronic hardware that he found around his home and built a radio. After he built the radio it actually worked and he was able to communicate with a friend who lived a block away.
Andrey Andreev realized his love of technology as a kid so when he grew as an adult he had already had a career path in mind. Once he became an adult he saw that he had a strong niche in the online dating space. He has different successful apps currently active for different target users that find themselves pretty satisfied about the upbringings they´ve found using their services. That’s when he capitalized and just repeated the process for multiple different dating apps. Years later he has a net worth of 1.5 billion.
