In 2016, we founded our first online company right after graduating from university. Our backgrounds varied—business, finance, and technology—but we shared a common goal: to build a successful, location-independent internet business. Within two years, we grew to over 50 employees, all working remotely, long before COVID-19 made remote work popular. Now, we’re building our second company, again operating remotely. Gitnux is a platform where we share our insights on leadership, remote work, meetings, and digital collaboration with you, the reader.

Our Meeting Management Software
The idea for our software originated in our first company, which we had built primarily remotely. There, our approach was to minimize the number of meetings. As a result, we had weekly team meetings that were comprehensive and therefore needed to be well-structured.
This led us to the idea of using Google Docs as a collaborative meeting agenda. Each participant had to input all of their agenda items for the upcoming meeting by a certain deadline, allowing everyone to prepare. We took it a step further by commenting on the agenda items, finding that many topics could be resolved, to some extent, before the meeting even began. This shortened the meeting duration considerably.
This approach enabled us to significantly increase productivity while spending less time in inefficient meetings.
However, we faced challenges with Google Docs and other software products, prompting us to start developing initial prototypes for use within our company.
Our Meeting Manifesto
We’ve written extensively about meetings on Gitnux. These articles can be a great starting point for you if you’re looking to optimize the meetings in your company.
If you want to dive deeper into our meeting philosophy, we recommend our manifesto. We’ve studied numerous management books and consolidated our practical knowledge about efficient meetings. The result is a guidebook for companies aiming to achieve more.
The idea for our newsletter emerged when we were seeking valuable insights for the development of our software, ZipDo. We had many conversations with young leaders who were encountering the topic of leadership for the first time and faced open questions in their daily roles as tech leaders and managers. Our newsletter is targeted at aspiring tech leaders, aiming to show them how, with a deep understanding of psychology, they can avoid the classic mistakes in leadership and thus become better managers.
