I am a person who can live on a plane, traveling to the next destination. A perfect weekend for me (when not on a plane) is meeting friends and relatives and watching my favorite football team play.
Matthew, a Founding Partner at Oncall - RDI/A, developed digital experiences for top brands like McDonald's, Nike and Microsoft. Simultaneously, Kamen co-founded Odds and Bets, a notable Bulgarian sports-betting platform. Their paths intersected in 2009, and they were united by a shared development philosophy. After a few successful collaborative projects, they realized their professional destinies were intertwined.
From 2009 to 2014, Matthew and Kamen collaborated on several groundbreaking digital projects. Their most remarkable works during this period included collaborations with esteemed brands like DIRECTV, Microsoft, STi, and AKG.
The collaboration between Matthew and Kamen led to significant growth for both Oncall - RDI/A and Odds and Bets. In a similar timeline, both companies were independently acquired. While the prospects of early retirement and perpetual vacations beckoned, they yearned for more. Desiring to create something transformative, they chose not to settle. Instead, they conceptualized a revolutionary approach to offshoring, thus architecting the concept of Offshore Like Next Door™.
The concept was simple but its implementation required extraordinary effort. Matthew, who didn't speak Bulgarian, moved from Chicago to Sofia, Bulgaria to make it work. The goal was to create an offshoring experience that felt like collaborating with a team just blocks away, shedding all preconceived notions and practices. They built an agency model from scratch, mirroring a thriving US-based digital agency. This involved working US hours, adopting English as the office language, and utilizing systems and processes familiar to US digital agencies.
In a blink, "The B Team™", also known as "The Bulgaria Team", was established. They meticulously assembled a team of exceptional Bulgarian and US members and intentionally fostered an environment conducive to supporting US businesses. The B Team™, both as a concept and in practice, started as a continuously evolving entity, embodying the excellence of its founders, clients, and team members.
