Creator of the Week 🏆

If you haven’t heard of Jakob Greenfeld, you’ve got homework for the weekend. A recent tweet coined him “one of the most exciting bootstrapped solo-founders out of Germany.” And tbh, we don’t doubt it. He’s built and sold Product Explorer (acq by Micro Acquire), currently scaling Opportunities.so and just launched a new product called “Under the Radar” which is taking ProductHunt by storm. He’s also got a list of 16 side projects with their status (dormant, sold, active) which we think makes him an absolute Kernal king. Wanna link up with Jacob? Comment on his top Kernal idea or hit em up on Twitter.
