Yuri Zaremba

Co-founder & CEO at AXDRAFT

About me

With an extensive corporate law background, I launched AXDRAFT in 2017, which raised $1.4 mln in investments from Y Combinator and top Silicon Valley and European VCs.

This helped me to scale the startup in ARR and customer base. We got over 50 world-known enterprises as customers (including Walmart, Nestle, Slack, Vimeo, Louis Dreyfus Company, Sandoz, and Glovo).

Three years later, I successfully sold AXDRAFT to Onit Inc for ...

All this time, I’ve worked closely with various C-level executives for over ten years now and understand how to build relationships and manage multiple stakeholders without slowing down the pace of execution.
