Hello! Who are you and what business did you start?

Hey everyone! My name is Ruslan Halilov and I’m one of the co-founders of Bluedot. We are building an AI Chrome extension for Google Meet. It writes notes during the meetings, so you can focus on the conversation rather than scribing.

Unlike 99% of other tools on the market, we don’t have any bot /assistants joining your calls. Instead, Bluedot seamlessly captures your Google Meet using our Chrome extension and immediately generates notes adapted to your needs. Our customers are founders, solopreneurs, and freelancers.

We launched two months ago and currently have 500 daily active users. Additionally, we have a $1.5K MRR, with a 50% monthly growth rate.

There is always something that can go wrong with the clients or internally. When people leave the agency they take lots of knowledge with them and you need to hire new people and onboard them fast.

We had numerous meetings but struggled with documenting our decisions and processes.

The first idea was to create a centralized hub for all of the company-wide meeting recordings.

We started building the product while conducting 5-10 research calls each week to validate the hypothesis. Looking back now I can see that I was very bad at research and misrepresented people being nice with…
