About us

At Scrintal, we are unlocking minds’ creative potential

Writers of all kinds, researchers, journalists, business people, entrepreneurs… Simply creators... What they have in common is the underlying need to structure their ideas to think better so they can write and communicate better. This is an indisputable prerequisite to inspire others and teach them something different that can unlock new ways of thinking.

Yet today, creators work across several tools that cause them to lose their flow & concentration. They are unable to see their work, both the details and the big picture, at a glance. They end up spending more time doing mundane tasks instead of doing the creative.

We believe we can help millions of people get crystal clear in their thinking and connect more of their creative thoughts to create valuable knowledge, to be shared with others – by combining the powers of visual mind mapping with networked note-taking.

We’re on a mission to help folks enjoy the research, thinking and writing process more than they’ve ever experienced. Get the recognition they deserve.

We’re not building a second brain! We’re empowering your one and only brain with steroids – with no side effects.

Scrintal Team

People First

We believe people make the brand! We make sure that anyone under the Scrintal umbrella feels valued as an individual, feels comfortable to voice their opinions, treat each other with respect and help each other.

We built Scrintal on top of 5 values:

1. Experimentation

We assume we don’t have the answers to anything. The only way to find the right answers or even make credible assumptions is to be and remain curious about any-and-every-thing.

We foster a work environment in which everyone creates hypotheses, experiments new ways of doing things, documents the results and shares what they’ve learnt with the rest of the team.

There is no such thing as success or failure because there have been a dozen times when a so-called failure led to breakthrough. We live the experimental culture in product development, growth, marketing, literally in every aspect of our business.

2. Extreme Ownership

Every individual has a tremendous potential, a unique strength that deserves the chance to be revealed. By adopting an extreme ownership mentality, you become the CEO of your project or task.

We cultivate the feelings of responsibility and trust towards each other through owning what we promise to do. You leave your ego outside the door. Because at the end of the day, the overall success of the mission hence the company is more important than any individuals’ personal glory at Scrintal.

3. Transparency
We don’t want to work in silos. When knowledge is encapsulated in blocks, the potential room for creativity gets limited. We involve as many people as possible in the process so their voices are heard. We keep everyone informed about all the significant decisions that are made.

If someone is not happy with a decision, has an objection or another idea, we encourage everyone to speak up their mind. We proactively set up meetings to solve any issues that might arise. Transparency is one of the key underlying principles that shape how we work.

4. Diversity

We are founded by a team of three who moved to Sweden as immigrants, one as a PhD researcher, one a masters student and one as a software developer. We witnessed first hand how our differences bring the best out of us. This will never stay as a buzzword at Scrintal – our growth plans will be heavily influenced by the diversity of our employees who come from different backgrounds and feel 100% welcomed here.

5. Trust

Where there is no trust, there is no relationship. We show our trust to each other not only by giving extreme ownership of projects, but more importantly via caring and respecting each others’ opinions. If there is a disagreement, we encourage everyone to support their arguments with data or examples. We draw a clear distinction between one's ideas and one’s self.

Feel joy, not stress, when working!
