-- we make mobile apps affordable and simple for small businesses. We're a do-it-yourself iPhone, iPad, Android & HTML5 app platform that allows any small business to simultaneously create, edit, and manage mobile apps without any programming knowledge needed. Think of us as "Wordpress for mobile app creation." Many of our customers are marketing or design agencies that use our platform to cost effectively build mobile apps for small business clients.

At the age of 10, he was selling baseball cards to neighborhood friends, and at the age 15, Andrew created his first for-profit website. In 2009, Andrew founded and bootstrapped Bizness Apps into a global enterprise all while he was a senior in college. Since then, he has gone on to help more than 500,000 small businesses engage with their customers on mobile devices.
Today, Gazdecki is an authority on mobile marketing for small and medium sized businesses. He has been featured in The New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Inc.com, and Entrepreneur Magazine, as well as prominent industry blogs such as Mashable, TechCrunch and VentureBeat. A firm believer in education, Gazdecki offers frequent presentations and donations to his alma mater, and contributes to the school’s Entrepreneurship Week, which gives students the tools and resources to bring their businesses to fruition.
