Since October 1st, the partnership between Fatster App and the French University Toulouse School of Management is a reality 🙂
For this coming 6 months experience, we’re glad to greet the students as members of the Fatster Team, and would like to say thank you to Toulouse School of Management (TSM) and specially Lars Meyer Waarden for their precious support in the project; It’s through this help that Fatster will grow, learn and create the best application for overweight people to lose weight in a fun way.
21 Master Degree students, from different nationalities (French, Thais and Germans) will work together to help Fatster to grow internationally and build a better product.
This project will be spited in 4 groups, supervised by Julien Cloarec (project leader), Cyrielle Vellera (TSM senior lecturer) and Sandra Laporte (HEC Montréal teacher and specialist in the purchasing behavior of obese people).
As part of their studies as International Marketing students, the students will learn in a startup environment how to develop a project, manage the strategic aspects and participate to a common adventure.
Project researches / studies will be also conducted, related to the motivation for use and nudges to integrate into the app as base of thesis subjects for TSM PhD students.
After a quick survey, 7 students out of 21 want to lose weight. In average they have 3 kg to lose.

- Group 1: Data Analysis (Behavioral Data)
- Group 2: Marketing (Social Media)
- Group 3: Product Improvement
- Group 4: Nutritionist Lessons (Gamification)
