MSQRD developers from Belarus on 2017 Forbes 30 Under 30

Eugene Nevgen and Sergey GoncharMINSK, 3 January (BelTA) - MSQRD application developers Eugene Nevgen and Sergey Gonchar hit this year’s Forbes 30 Under 30 in Consumer Technology, BelTA has learned.

“When Facebook wanted to catch up with Snapchat, it turned to two entrepreneurs from Belarus. Nevgen and Gonchar built MSQRD, an app that adds crazy filters to your selfies. After the app caught on in the U.S., Facebook bought MSQRD for an undisclosed amount in March 2016. Since then, both cofounders have been working for Facebook in London,” Forbes writes about the developers from Belarus.

There were no other Belarusians on the list of the prestigious magazine.
