It takes guts and dedication along with hard work and passion for starting a business. This is the first step towards building a business, but in this ever changing industry, only fewer businesses or start-up are able to thrive. Orly Shoavi is the perfect example for the entrepreneurs, especially for women who are unable to gather enough courage to start a venture.
Orly Shoavi is the Co-founder & CEO of ‘SafeDK Mobile Ltd.’, the world’s first end-to-end SDK Management Solution Company. Motivated by passion and interest, Orly is a hard-working entrepreneur. She has an inspirational saying about building a business, she says, “there is no comparison of the passion that you have when you start a business from scratch and it has your vision all over it.”
Orly wanted to build a business of her own that she would impact every aspect of it, from tech, product and business decisions to company culture and team nature. She was lucky enough to get what exactly was needed; a great company with an amazing co-founder and team, super innovative product, and customers who love the solution.
The aim of the company ‘SafeDK’ is to grow worldwide. At the initial stage of the company, Orly had no experience in the Sales, but she had a vast experience in building products and with business development. At present, the company has a dedicated and established sales team which sells globally and more than dozens of customers worldwide. The focus of the company is to grow the current customers’ verticals and expand to additional ones.
The company is now opening their first out-of-Israel office in the New York City, at United States which according to Orly is exciting and challenging. The biggest challenge is maintaining the company’s culture even when the company is growing.
A lot of efforts are put in screening candidates, not only by skill, but also by their being ‘SafeDK Material,’ which means kind and honest people with great passion and positive attitude. To ensure high-quality code and continued learning Orly encourages employees to learn from outside the office constantly. Many practices are carried out such as going to the courses and meetups, attending industry events and meeting experts from relevant areas.
