Hello, I’m PAVEL



I’m Pavel Cherkashin. I’m in IT for almost all my life. I had started as a project manager, Chief Security Officer, CEO of several companies (software & hardware development), and now I’m the founder of FamilyNotes – a mobile app for taking photonotes. Also, I have my pet project StartupServices – a collection of tools and services for startups and founders.


FamilyNotes – is a mobile application for taking and sharing photo notes. It’s available for both platforms – IOS and Android, so, you could find it in App Store and Google Play as well.

StartupServices – is a knowledge base for aspiring entrepreneurs and founders so that they could use it and offered to contribute to it as well. Now there are more than 1000 useful services, programs and utilities in the StratupServices database to solve a variety of tasks that may arise when you start a startup.
