“I attended the lecture of Genesis co-founder Vladimir Mnogoletny which opened up a lot of key ideas for me. After the lecture, I realized that I did not have a focus on quality hiring. My company's stage does not meet the team requirements for further growth and scaling. As CEO I'm not doing my job right. Therefore, my efforts now are aimed at improving the team.”

Shyngys Bolatbekov
Co-founder INTERSOL & CYBERFOX, CEO CYBERFOX

“My team had a question: "How to test your idea and business model with minimal resources and without a finished product?".
Lectures about unit economics and Internet marketing, as well as practical advice from Meta lecturers, helped me find the answer. As a result of the experiment, we determined the basic model of the unit economics and top-level metrics, adjusted the business model and the direction of product development, confirmed the value hypothesis and collected the base of the first users.”

Oleksandr Korzhenko
Co-founder INTERSOL & CYBERFOX, CEO CYBERFOX

“The lectures on analytics were especially helpful to me. The work of analysts permeates almost all areas of the company: product, marketing and finance. And it also influences business decision-making. The lecturers talked about the basics of analytics and its types, differences in task setting, examples of organizational structure, features of hiring and interaction with other team members. And the analysis of real tasks and achieved results helped to visualize Getpin's future steps in this direction.”

Volodymyr Leshchenko
Founder Getpin

“I got the insight at one of the lectures on marketing which goes: “Do what no one has done before you. At least in your niche." I have realized that I need to experiment with creatives and convey the value of the product through them. Now the topic of brand strategy and long-term marketing is of great interest to me, so we will launch the first tests.”

Maria Batrin
Co-founder & Product Manager, Bloomy Lab

“The key thesis from the StartUp Academy is “The main business battle in the coming years is the battle for talent.” As a CEO, I am planning to get involved in networking and form a circle of cool guys in my niches in the near future. This will help class A-players quickly close positions as the business scales. The point where the company will be in five years really depends on who we hire in the coming months.”

Maksym Sundalov
CEO EnglishDom
