Blog about building profitable businesses as an engineer
I am learning how to make products that people not only use, but also buy and love. Join me on this journey and let's improve together.

Get to know me:

Hi there! I am Aljaz Svigelj, an entrepreneur and indie maker with a software engineering background, who got sick of building products that nobody used or that were hard to monetize. A huge part of building a profitable product is counter-intuitive for us engineers. Join me and we will together break through the limits of an engineering mindset to business, learn idea validation, user research, marketing, sales, copy, .. and become bootstrap founders, who can find worthwhile problems, validate them, build solutions and sell them (to real people 😉).

Here are some of my latest projects:

  • Create a beautifully designed and customized crosswords and wordsearches for weddings, birthdays, anniversaries or any other occasion. Create one in minutes.
  • Lead generation tool. Currently a free browser extension that extracts emails and social media handles from websites and prepares them for easy import into Excel, Google Sheets or any email automation software.
  • Lia (retired)
    Online programming competition where coders write AI bots with which they fight against each other in multilayer video games and compete for top spots on the leaderboard. A fun way to find talents and connect them to great opportunities in the industry.
