Making Asset Management Accessible for Everyone

Glad you made it here! This page will highlight the team working behind Shelf as well as some of our beliefs and dreams in this software category.


Open Source Software is the way to build true value in our space

Open Source First

If Software will eat the world. Then Open Source will eat Software.

Async Team

Cross border / Cross timezone collaboration and building is our superskill.

Built having fun

We are building serious software, however, our person:to:person collaboration should be fun, kind and respectful.

Clear Vision

Every action we take should contribute towards our vision of empowering people to tag and track 1 Billion assets by 2033 (or earlier!)

Shelf is currently self-founded by Carlos & Nikolay. If you believe in COSS/Open Core/Open Source and like to support us in our vision of empowering humans to tag and track 1 Billion Assets on our Infrastructure by 2033 (or faster!) feel free to get in touch.

Our Manifesto

At Shelf, we believe that clarity and organization are the keys to success, both in life and in business. That's why we created an app that helps people keep track of their physical assets, no matter where they are or who has them.

Our QR code-based technology makes it quick and easy to register, track, and manage assets, from equipment to inventory to personal belongings. And our platform is so versatile that it can be customized for any use case, making it perfect for individuals, teams, and organizations of all sizes.

But Shelf is more than just a tool. It's a way of life. By using Shelf, you'll feel a sense of control and empowerment that comes from knowing exactly where your assets are, how they're being used, and what they're worth. You'll be able to make informed decisions about your resources, streamline your operations, and even contribute to a more sustainable future by recycling or repurposing your items.

At Shelf, we're committed to openness, collaboration, and innovation. That's why our software is open source, meaning that anyone can use it, customize it, and contribute to its development. And it's why we're constantly improving our platform to meet the evolving needs of our users.

Our ultimate vision is to empower humans to tag and track 1 billion assets, creating a world where everyone has a single source of truth for their physical belongings. And we believe that, by doing so, we can create outstanding value for our users and society as a whole.

Join us on this journey. Use Shelf, talk about it, and contribute to its development. Together, we can make the world a more organized, empowered, and sustainable place.
