My dream is that the level of treatment in Ukraine changes dramatically. I am motivated by the opportunity to make the world a better place for me and my daughter. I want her children to feel safer and more confident in this world. I am a dreamer, visionary and the engine of many processes. I am a person who sees no obstacles.

We want to create a network of offline stores: in Kyiv, Dnipro, Kharkiv and Vinnytsia. It is possible due to the money received from the sale of the company’s share. We will take half of the money and reinvest half of the money. This decision was very difficult for us, but we want to achieve a turnover of 1 billion, and the sale of a share will allow us to grow and develop faster.

In 2010, when such services and the culture of fellow travelers did not exist yet, it dawned on me that we were using our automobile resource irrationally, and this is how the Podorozhnik appeared. Six months after the arrival of Google Maps, we released the first version of the product. A year after the start, we raised 100 thousand dollars.

In 2014, when we sold the Invisible CRM license to the last major player in the market, Microsoft, we sat down to brainstorm and decided what to do next. We chose to extract data from services that we previously integrated with each other. This made it possible to compare, analyze pipelines and say: “Do this, it led to success, but don’t do that.”

I would like Ukraine to develop in the vector of Western countries, adopting their cultural values. This is happening now, but it can only be viewed with restrained optimism. I hope we will be able to ensure that more and more Ukrainian businesses are integrated into the processes with Western partners. Then the evolution of views will be inevitable

If all Ukrainian companies merge into one, they will still not have enough capacity to enter a world-class system. If your market is only Ukrainian, then it’s too early to talk about development. If you compete with another EU company, you will lose. When solving complex engineering problems, it’s hard to predict how long it will take in the end

Money is success. What I own now and what I want to achieve in the future are two different things. I want to work harder, achieve more. Build a great story. SendPulse is a small success so far.

We do e-commerce, only for virtual worlds. We sell it as a white label, that is, a type of partnership in which one company produces goods or services, and the other sells them under its own brand. We can say that I have created a couple of thousand jobs in the virtual space. Such is the creator economy
