Why did we start Adku?


We started Adku to improve the world. That may seem like a grandiose vision, but we really believe that in order to create something that eventually does have the impact you want it to, you have to first believe that it's possible. 

We're still in stealth mode and aren't disclosing too much about our product now, but we can talk about how we came up with the idea. We'd known and worked with each other for almost six years at Google, and we naturally gravitated towards each other as we're all entrepreneurial spirits.

There were a few things that we wanted from any company we created:
  • Passion - We wanted to work on something we were very passionate about to the point of being obsessed. The kind of idea that you think about all the time (even in your dreams) and are willing to break through walls in order to deliver. Considering how much of your life you spend at your profession, it really shouldn't be seen as a chore, but rather as something you are excited to wake up and do every day. 
  • A difficult technical problem - We're all technical founders and we love computers and the power they bring. We wanted to create a solution that required large computing resources and that wasn't even possible to do as recently as one to two years ago. We're starting with real-time analysis of the vast data that's being created every second on the web and building a machine learning prediction engine to optimize eCommerce. 
  • Solving an actual problem - We wanted to create a company that solved a problem that people experience today. Every potential customer that we talk to very quickly understands the pain point that we are addressing. 
  • Culture - We want to work with people that are fun and are friends. We want every new hire to be smarter than every previous hire at the company. We want an environment where communication is 100% open and everyone feels ownership in the product and company. We're going to do this together!
From modest beginnings, we've all been fortunate to have been given great opportunities and skills in our lives. At Google we were responsible for products that are being used by billions of people, and we are even more excited about Adku. The first step in starting a company was the hardest, but as soon as we did it there was no doubt that it was the best decision we've made. 

Adku is the beginning of a new journey. As with anything, there will be ups and downs, but we believe in our vision and will obsessively listen to our customers and will solve their needs. We plan to listen closely to everyone who takes the time to tell us how we can be better. 

Please let us know if you are interested in learning more or in working with us! It's going to be an amazing ride.

  53. Not so long ago there was a common opinion that Ukrainians in Europe can only work as prostitutes or servants.O now there is a trend to marry Ukrainians. And why not? They, unlike Western European women, have not yet been corrupted by feminism. A Ukrainian woman who is not married by the age of 27 is considered "unmarketable. And western women at this age are busy building their careers, and often begin to think about family and children closer to 40. Ukrainian women are ready to take care of children, housekeeping, and many of them like to cook. There is a website where you can quickly find ukrainian brides. I can't recommend this site by hearsay.
