Very proud to be on the cover of @forbes.russia. So many talented tech people who change lives of billions every day through their platforms like Sergey Brin of Google, Arkady Volozh of Yandex, Pavel Durov of Telegram are from Russia. Most importantly, thousands of hardworking engineers were born and raised in Russia. Historically Russia and former USSR countries have some of the strongest tech schools, catapulting techies into the world of technology around the world. They brilliantly code, test, create and make those seamless and intuitive online experiences that so many of us love. They help us find what we’re looking for, get from one place to another, communicate and discover new people all in the palm of your hand. To celebrate this cover, of a boy who started at a small flat in Moscow surrounded by wires and books on tech, I pledge to make an angel investment and provide mentorship to 10 aspiring young entrepreneur’s from Russia who would like to build a tech company to solve problems, and make their dreams into reality around the world. I hope I can pass my learnings and experience to the next generation of leaders. Please send a short pitch to my Instagram DMs. Looking forward to hearing from all of you.
