The Scoutzie Story (feat. Kirill Zubovsky)
Who is Kirill Zubovsky ?
Kirill Zubovsky is the founder of Smash Notes, but back in 2012 he had founded Scoutzie, a curated marketplace for designers, that he took through Y Combinator. Kirill enjoys the combination of development and design and self-learned those skills to start his first company. Currently Kirill is residing in Seattle and loving it.
What juncture did Scoutzie reach that proved to be difficult ?
The company reached a high volume of clients, but also was finding it difficult to continue raising money with investors. The potential volume for projects was high, but Scoutzie struggled to handle all of them because at the time, their model was not scalable.
As of 2015, the Scoutzie team decided to shut the product down. We discuss with Kirill about his experiences, and what’s next.
