Hi I’m Akis

This page is the most up to date list of what I’m working on and thinking about right now.

Life

London, UK + frequently in Athens, Greece. (I’m originally Greek)

WHAT I DO

I run HelpfulDocs. We write and update the content tech companies need for their users: Knowledge base and help articles, FAQs, change logs, product updates, onboarding guides, and more.

I also advise startups on sales and growth. Currently, I’m working with B2B Wave.

Notable milestones prior to that:

Co-led the growth of an online tutoring business called Brilliant Grades from zero to $4.5K MRR in a quarter. The team reached $80K MRR in the first year.

Co-led the growth of a bootstrapped school growth solution called Enrollhand from 15 to 400 customers in 2 years. The average contract value was $7K/year.

Founded a B2B SaaS called Offerial and raised $480K for it. Our product was enabling hotels to generate real-time personalized offers using guest data. It failed for many reasons. The two key ones were the following: 1) we were way too early – building AI into a SaaS solution in 2012 wasn’t as easy as it is today, and 2) we didn’t have any experience building B2B SaaS.

Things I’M Currently discovering

Mountain hiking
Wine regions worldwide
