Forces Joined

Matthew was a Founding Partner of Chicago-based Oncall - RDI/A and was building digital experiences for brands like McDonald’s, Nike, and Microsoft. Kamen was the co-founder of Bulgarian-based Odds and Bets, a powerful sports-betting arbitrage platform. They met in 2009 and were amazed by how similar their development philosophies aligned. At first, they tried collaborating on a few projects and with each successful deliverable, it became more obvious that their futures would one day join.


Initial Successes

Between 2009 and 2014, Matthew and Kamen worked together to bring some amazing digital experiences to life. Some of their most note-worthy projects during this time were for DIRECTV, Microsoft, STi & AKG.



This collaboration yielded amazing growth for both Oncall - RDI/A and Odds and Bets. Within roughly the same timeframe, both businesses were acquired (independently) and Matthew and Kamen were dreaming about early retirement and endless vacations. Yet still, there was a desire to accomplish more. Something amazing. Something game-changing. With plenty of time to sit on the beach in their future, they instead decided to attempt to reinvent offshoring and architected the concept Offshore Like Next Door™.


Offshore Like Next Door™

It was a simple concept that required unprecedented effort. For instance, not speaking a word of Bulgarian, Matthew moved from Chicago to Sofia, Bulgaria. To make offshoring successful and feel like a team of developers a few blocks away, devoid of all preconceived practices and philosophies. They created an agency concept from scratch and made it a mirror of a thriving US-based digital agency. This meant working US hours, making English the language in the office, and adopting systems and processes utilized by US digital agencies.


The B Team™ Was Born

And just like that, The B Team™ (aka The Bulgaria Team) was born. Together they assembled a team of outstanding Bulgarian and US team members and meticulously cultivated an environment that is suited to support US businesses. The B Team™ - as a concept and in practice - began as what would become a continually-evolving body of work that represents the best of its founders, clients, and team.
