Yegor Sak is the co-founder of Windscribe, a free VPN and Ad Block that has over 43 million active users.

With tens of thousands of competitors, Windscribe has also been rated as one of the best VPNs on the market, and they’ve been able to pull it off with a team of less than 40 people.

Yegor started and grew Windscribe with zero outside capital and made the business profitable by month two and currently are doing around $3M in annual revenue.

He was born in Belarus and didn’t have access to the internet until his family moved to Canada when he was 12. Shortly after getting internet access, Yegor developed a passion for programming and creating websites, and as a teenager, he worked on several websites that earned him money.

One of the first websites he created had people paying him to buy iPods and game consoles and smash them into pieces. A video he made smashing a PS3 was in the top 10 YouTube videos of all time in 2016, and over two years, this website earned him over $60,000.

He is also the founder of ControlD, a fully customizable DNS service that allows you to not only block annoyances like malware, tracking, ads, or IoT telemetry but also unblock over 200 services through a network of servers in over 100 cities. All without any apps to install.
