Savvy Spreadsheets was founded by Janet Kim Dagostino, an Excel geek with over 10 years of professional experience working with Excel. Janet received her undergraduate degree in Business Administration from UC Berkeley, and has built her Excel knowledge from working in various industries such as consulting, finance, and fashion. She is currently a planning manager at a luxury fashion brand in New York City.
Based on feedback from friends and colleagues, Janet quickly learned that there was a shortage of user-friendly Excel templates available on the web. She founded Savvy Spreadsheets in 2013 as a resource for sophisticated, yet simple, Excel templates for users of all levels. Savvy Spreadsheets aims to become the go-to resource for practical Excel templates that are actually fun to use.
Someka is the brainchild of Onur Yilmaz and Ozgur Bircan, two childhood friends from Istanbul, Turkey. Onur and Ozgur have backgrounds in engineering and finance, and extensive business experience working in departments such as pricing and competitive analysis.
After 10+ years of hands-on experience working in Excel, Onur and Ozgur decided to channel their knowledge into developing unique and creative Excel solutions. In 2015, they started selling their Excel templates under the name Someka, and in 2016 they opened their Someka shop under Savvy Spreadsheets. Onur and Ozgur’s knowledge and passion for Excel is readily apparent in each one of their products. Learn more about Someka.
