I am experienced in building and growing IT and media businesses. Strategist, business developer, and product owner currently living in Kyiv, Ukraine.

Bio:

I built and managed for 10 years own IT outsourcing company in Ukraine, with 50 employees and offices in two cities. It served such brands as Samsung, Siemens, and BenQ. I also built two startups and most recently support Ukrainian startup ecosystem by giving lectures and advising about mistakes not to make early on.

Before closing my last startup venture RocketStart (marketing suite for small business) I launched and developed in Ukraine representative office of Polish media-corporation ITI Group: prepared launches of a satellite network, a satellite TV channel, and a network of movie theatres. I played a leading role in building the company's media assets. Prior to ITI Group I launched in Ukraine successful international magazine MAX (GQ competitor with headquarter in Milan, Italy): bought license, set up the office, built a highly motivated team, developed countrywide distribution, and within six months made it profitable.

Previously I was Consultant at Project Consulting Group. Under my leadership, three international businesses entered Ukrainian market and brought $15M investments.
