  • Alex helped me with the company and team development, understanding of fundamental startup terms, fundraising process, and communications with accelerators, angel, and venture investors when I just started. I really appreciate he was one of those people who helped me build my company and create a path to the future.

    Founder at Bestmap & Fueltime

  • Several years ago I launched my product - stand-alone coffee carts and bikes. Alex mentored me for a long time on a wide range of issues, from pitching to business foundations. As a result, we managed to enter international markets and sell our products. It's simple, I came with a goal and a lack of understanding of how to achieve it, with Alex I achieved it. Thanks, dude!

  • Alex was a great advisor and mentor while I was just starting my company. He has a deep knowledge of product marketing and launching on the US market - one of the most important insights for any startup founder willing to find their place on the American tech scene. I also cherish Alex’s advice on business development and communicating with prospective clients and investors in the US as it has helped me to score some new US clients for my business.

  • When we started carsharing startup SizeCar, Alex helped us a lot with advice and insights on how to launch the company in the US and how to get to startup accelerators. After we were accepted to the accelerator, Alex explained to us the relationship between investors and founders, helped us with budget questions, etc. I do appreciate Alex's responsiveness and mentorship!

  • When I started to raise investments I needed to find accelerators and prepare a Pitch Deck, and Executive Summary. In a short time, Alex helped me to prepare and structure all the documents and provided channels for finding specialized accelerators. Also, I got a lot of practical advice from Alex. It helped me a lot.
