Bintime & Gepard Founder Reflects On Company’s Success
“Mistakes and failures are the cutters that shape you as a personality and your business. The most important thing is what you are taking out of it.” Sergey Shvets, Founder & CEO, Bintime & Gepard
When Bintime & Gepard founder and CEO Sergey Shvets together with Martijn Hoogeveen started the development company in 2005, it wasn’t out of the blue. Martijn has already been a pioneering IT entrepreneur these days, and Sergey comes from a technical background. “I’d been a developer for quite a long time,” he says. “It’s always been a very practical task for me: delivering what a business needs.
Shvets learned early on that he needed a team to support his endeavors. “I couldn’t handle all the jobs,” he admits. These days, the Bintime & Gepard team works on e-commerce, PIM, and other software development projects for clients around the world.
But building a team of 130+ experts hasn’t always been easy — especially when you take into account the company values. “Our values are the reasons why we exist,” Shvets says. And there are two that stand out from the crowd.
“We deliver what we promise, and we believe solutions have to be adapted to support business operations, and not vice versa.” These beliefs have earned us a name for ourselves in our industry, as well as 15 years of satisfied customers.
Here at Bintime & Gepard, we partner with Clutch, a B2B platform for ratings and reviews. It gives us insight into our clients’ experiences during our engagements, and we couldn’t be prouder to have gathered such great feedback.
In one recent review, our client, a cycling retailer, reflects on a mobile app development project we carried out for them. Not only did we build them a successful app, but their team was also left impressed with our expertise and commitment to the project.
“They are dedicated and will always help to find a solution for our wishes and problems.” — IT Manager, Futurumshop.nl BV
We’re also proud to announce that we’re ranked on The Manifest, another directory that shows off top companies in B2B industries around the world. Check us out!
We’re thankful to our customers who’ve taken the time to leave us such great feedback. It’s a testament to the team, culture, and organization Shvets has been building for the last 15 years.
“There’s no silver bullet or anything like that,” Shvets says when asked about building a successful company. “You really have to experiment and don’t be afraid to fail at a certain time. Mistakes and failures are the cutters that shape you as a personality and your business. The most important thing is what you are taking out of it.”
