Hi there! Let me tell you my unconventional story. I was born in a small industrial city in the middle of a desert in Central Asia, former USSR, now Kazakhstan. As a teenager, I was enrolled in a George Soros computer class to learn logic programming languages. At about the same time, I had my first entrepreneurial experience organising my classmates to manufacture and sell fashion goods. Later I was trained to also write algorithms with a pen and paper at the university while studying Applied Mathematics and Financial Management in Siberia, Moscow and New York. When I was young, I did not know what career I should pursue, but I knew I was set to make a big positive impact on the world.

When I was 19 years old, my first official employment happened at the defense systems agency in a building of Russian NASA (Rosaviacosmos). The mission of this place had a contagious grand scale, but I quickly realized that I needed freedom of execution in order to make an impact, so I decided to stick to entrepreneurship and become a global citizen. I moved to Europe and started my true entrepreneurial journey with Italian fashion before going to Germany to build Europe's biggest online games company. From there onwards, I have been building, co-founding, investing and advising multiple great technology and health nutrition companies. As a part of the seed investment fund Youngbrains, I was lucky to be a part of several outstanding successes with consequent exits.


As my most recent endeavour and the biggest mission, together with a tried-and-proven founding team, I started the real estate network Casafari. Our aim is to solve chaos and information asymmetry in real estate by building the most 
complete database with applications for professionals. We organise the market into an efficient ecosystem to enable and accelerate deals in a transparent and safe environment.


By consolidating and professionalising fragmented property markets, we increase energy efficiency and availability of professionalised affordable living thus helping investors and governments solve the housing and land crisis, achieve sustainability, equality, and better consumer protection. By optimising urban logistics for delivery and quick-commerce companies, we significantly reduce the carbon footprint.


Being fluent in German, Russian and English, I also have been learning Spanish, Italian and Portuguese (in reality, I speak Portuñol and Denglisch).


I am a certified skipper for any kind of motor and sailing yachts, deep-water advanced diver, long-distance trail and road runner. My curiosity makes me dig deep in biochemistry and neuroscience, laws of nature and connection to psychology and sociology. My main goal is to have a positive impact on society and the environment through exponential mindset and technologies.


I look forward to supporting daring entrepreneurs with bold missions aiming to solve persistent global grand challenges. Let us bring positive change to the constantly accelerating world together!
