How it all started

SOMETIMES A QUICK LUNCH MAY LEAD TO INTERESTING OPPORTUNITIES

Sniffie was founded in late 2015 by Tomi Grönfors, Niko Naakka and Tuomas Uutela, three Finnish entrepreneurs who had worked together in earlier businesses.

Niko, who at the time was consulting large companies on big data & AI, had a lunch with Tomi and told about the precursor of Sniffie. Tomi, who had been working as a CEO for different companies in marketing and FMCG businesses, saw how the product could help companies to collect web data easily. Quickly the two friends started pushing the venture in the evenings and weekends. As neither of the guys were excellent in running complex databases they asked Tuomas Uutela to join onboard. With Tuomas they confident they were able to serve customers with a working infrastructure.

Full-time work in the company started in January 2017 as Niko graduated.

It all started from a lunch
Sniffie pivoted the product

From the idea to present

FROM BASICS TO PIVOTING

The initial idea the team pursued was extracting web data for several purposes. After spending 2016 in an alpha, the team noticed that price monitoring with the technology offered superior advancement compared to current ways of doing it. Connecting live online data with your own offline data was something all the customers appreciated. During the early 2017 we pivoted the product and concentrated only on price monitoring & product analytics.

The success was immediately noticeable. In 2017, month-on-month growth was 60% on average, and continuing still in two figures.
