VPP039 – Scanye, a local tech startup


In my podcast we talk a lot about going global. Moreover, that’s probably the dream of every tech startuper. And yet we have something different on the plate today! Scanye, a domestic tech startup that helps SME’s and accounting firms with their invoices, long story short. If you feel like you’ve seen it before check out this episode as you may be surprised!

Scanye, another OCR-tech or more?

It’s not about the idea, it’s about the execution. That’s what one of my mentors used to say and I completely agree. We’ve heard about reading and processing invoices long time ago but Tadeusz Chruściel from Scanye is the one to ask how it should be done.

I feel a very strong bond with Tad as we both deal with similar issues and stereotypes. Working in a narrow niche has its own benefits but it really takes a lot of time and energy to gain momentum and trust.

To be honest isn’t this the core reason to innovate? To brake through the patterns and crush the status quo?

Apologies for long delays in releasing new episodes of the podcast. I’m moving houses and going through a series of relocation related issues at the moment but will be back with more interesting interviews soon.

Take care! Daniel
