5 out of 5 stars

Vladimir is hands down one of the coolest mentors I've had the chance to chat with! He's got brains, experience, and enough emotional intelligence to handle the impending robot apocalypse (no sweat!). 10/10, would definitely recommend



5 out of 5 stars

Vladmir has extensive experience in the start up eco system, building and exiting enterprises. He also has extensive technology exposure which makes the conversations very interesting if you are technologist too. Vladimir helped me quickly validate my ideas and direction of travel. He gave me lot of pointers and hacks which were straight away useful not just in product management or start up, but leading a rich and fulfilling life. There are a tonne of resources and experiences Vladimir has at disposal to share suiting almost any context... its just a matter of asking.
