Below is our recent interview with Idan Waller, Head of Growth and Co-Founder at Bluethrone:
Q: A brief introduction to your company
A: BlueThrone is a technology-driven app company that acquires, operates, and grows great iOS and Android apps with proven market-fit. In 2022, XT Hi-Tech led a $6.5M Seed Funding for BlueThrone.
Based out of Singapore, Bluethrone has a team of digital growth experts that take apps from 1 to 100 in the hottest niches on the AppStore. This happens through AI acquisition algorithms, big-data-based monetization, and building features that move the needle.
This means that we’re actually an app aggregator. We buy apps and massively grow them in-house.
Q: Can you give us more insights into your offering?
A: We offer mobile app developers two exit routes. The first one is a direct exit. Cash in on your app and move on to your next big project. The second one, which is available only for extraordinary developers with a really good app is a partnership deal, or “I Want To Stay In The Game” model. This means that not only does the developer enjoys an immediate life-changing sum of money, but also that we run and grow the app together.
Q: What can we expect from your company in the next 6 months? What are your plans?
A: In the next 6 months, we’re going to invest heavily in spreading the word. In today’s reality, many developers are still not aware of the possibility of selling their app or partnering up and growing together. So, we’re going to do events, conferences, webinars, and podcasts about how and why you should sell your app, and what exit sum you should expect. the first step is to go to the San Fransisco App Growth Summit 2022.
In addition, we’re looking to expand our portfolio with five-six excellent apps.
Q: What is the best thing about your company that people might not know about?
A: We have a “work from anywhere” policy, and our team comes from 15 different countries around the world. Twice a year we have an off-site in Phuket, Thailand. We rent a huge luxury penthouse and run our “Appathon”, a hackathon in which we all work to grow a specific app.
