Business Model

“Simple, reliable, and supportive. When we needed you guys, you were there.”

Michal Szlas, Founder of Otty Sleep


Like many businesses, Otty Sleep encountered challenges, particularly during the COVID-19 pandemic. The sudden shift in consumer behaviour led to a significant drop in sales, requiring the company to reassess its financial strategy. With a lean team and a commitment to profitability, Michal Szlas, Founder of Otty Sleep, sought solutions to navigate uncertain times while maintaining its commitment to quality and service.


In response to changing market conditions, they shifted their focus from rapid revenue growth to building a sustainable and profitable business model. This involved reevaluating its approach to debt financing and investment decisions. Understanding the importance of cash flow management, Otty Sleep sought flexible funding options that aligned with its long-term goals.
