A tech twist.
With that background, you’d think Nate and Christian would grow up to become dentists themselves. But no – their journey to the dental industry took a tech twist. Building, launching and running Uber in the US, Europe, Middle East and Africa, they learned everything there was to know about running a digital marketplace. From sign-up to screening, feedback to hiring, and more.
The “aha” moment.
A family friend struggled to find hygienist work after giving birth to her first child. She needed to work on her own terms. Start late, leave early. Work Wednesdays, not Mondays. That sort of thing. As they listened to their friend’s plight, Nate and Christian had a classic “aha” moment. With the tech they developed at Uber, they could not only help their friend, but other hygienists and dental offices too. So they created Teero. Now, they build tech to move the dental industry forward. (And make their parents proud along the way.)
