Ukrainian app “Headway” — is number 1 in the world by the number of downloads in its niche

"Headway", a Ukrainian application with a summary of books, is number 1 in the world in terms of the number of downloads in its niche and remains at the top throughout 2021

As evidenced by the data of the analytical platform Sensor Tower, for the first time it outstripped its main competitor, the German company Blinkist, back in September 2020.

The startup team has tripled in a year, and its revenue has tripled

Headway is an educational app that helps you read a book in 15 minutes. It contains a summary and main ideas of 1000+ non-fiction publications about business, motivation, and psychology. They are categorized and available in text and audio formats.

The app was created by the developers of the startup of the same name in March 2019 to help people around the world learn and develop on their own.

Over 2 years, the application has been downloaded by more than 7 million users. Headway is used in 140 countries, mainly in the USA, Canada, Australia, Great Britain, and India. In the summer of 2021, more than 500,000 people a month connected to the application.

“This is an achievement of the whole team because the basis of Headway is people. We believe in the power of self-development and create incredible things. This is what allowed us to grow from 3 people in a startup to 90 in 2 years, and this is just the beginning,” comments Anton Pavlovsky, CEO and founder of Headway.

As noted in the startup, Headway is one of the fastest-growing businesses in the ecosystem of the international IT holding Genesis. In the last year alone, the startup team has tripled, and its revenue has increased 6 times.
