Baxter - Summer'23 - The Gentle Nudge
The level of love you showed to Alec yesterday made me feel like:
Proud of you, nudgescribers! 💪
Today we are switching gears from a chrome extension to productified services.
Ladies and gentlemen, I give you Mateusz (and Kacper)!
Hi, I’m Mateusz!

I spent four years of my professional career in management consulting, working mostly for BCG. In 2019, I went on a 7-month trip around the world and then decided to start Epinote - a data annotation boutique.
Epinote is also built by Kacper - CPO, who jumped on Epinote Express a year ago and became an irreplaceable pillar of the product arm of the firm. Kacper is a product wizard that fell head over heels for product management since his first internship at Zety. Before joining Epinote, he sharpened his skills at Packhelp and then led product development at Delio, a q-commerce from the Zabka ecosystem.
Since 2019, a lot has happened and evolved. We have opened Epinote for various other use cases (lead generation, automation of back-office processes, physical store checks, competitors scraping, to name a few), built a global workforce of 400+ remote freelancers (mainly from Venezuela, the Philippines, and CEE) managed by our team of 20 wonderful individuals (mainly from Poland).
In Q4 2022, we secured a $1,5M VC deal aiming to turn Epinote from a service-based to a product company. In the last months, the generative AI revolution is what keeps us awake, as in a 1-2 year timeframe, it’s more of a threat than an opportunity, so we started exploring areas for pivoting to get ahead.
We ticked off most rookie entrepreneur mistakes, but at the same time, we are strong believers that they are simply a part of the startup journey. Nevertheless, we are more than happy to share our past and current challenges with a broader audience or help those beginning an entrepreneurial adventure have a smoother start!

If you are new here - welcome! My name is Marcin and I believe that anyone can become a successful entrepreneur. I was nudged by two friends in my 20s to start a company, and it changed my life. I now made it my life’s mission to pay it forward and nudge the next generation of entrepreneurs into starting their first business.
