Gul Panag takes start-up route, launches mobile app called MobieFit



By NewsGram Staff Writer

The actress Gul Panag has become the co-founder of a mobile app start-up called MobieFit, which focuses on health and fitness.

Talking about the new venture Gul said, “Technology has become such an integral part of our life. I’m a technology enthusiast and a keen watcher of the tech space. I use apps on my phone all the time, whether it is maps to find directions, edit a photo and so much more.”

“Fitness is another big passion for me, and on social media, everyday, someone will write in and ask me about my take on fitness or to suggest a tip for them. And while an offhand tip can be helpful, to have a consistent app to guide you is so much more,” she further added.

The 36-year-old actress will be joining hands with Gaurav Jaiswal who runs a mobile product incubator called Prototyze. Prototyze works in stealth mode on building mobile technology centered businesses, in multiple sectors such as financial services, health and fitness, and training and learning.

The concept of MobieFit has been taken from Prototyze.
