Andrew Dryga

Entrepreneur and a Full-Stack Developer

IT is my passion for many years, I’ve stated working in software development when I was 14. I have experience in bootstrapping new products and building R&D teams.

I like to think that each my project is a complex product, that have acquisition channels, technology that drives everything and stockholders that want to earn some money. That’s why I’m trying to educate myself in marketing and strategic planning fields. Also, I prefer very customer-oriented services, so I always worry about support of our customers.

Right now I’m interested in machine learning and AI applications in real-world businesses.

For B2C customers it allows to pay for 2700 services (utility, cellular, others) that cover Russia and part of CIS region. And to send money to the phone number. Receiver can get them by cash (in partnered bank branch), on any Visa or MasterCard, on prepaid cellular account, or on another eWallet in our cloud.

It increases customer loyalty, helps to reach new unbanked and underbanked customers, to make cross-sales of existing products, to get additional user balances, to increase fee incomes. For free.
