I appreciated how insightful Vladimir's advice was for our start-up company. It is great to have a mentor like Vladimir who I can rely on to check my thinking. He also gave us resources critical to our fundraising process. Invaluable advice.

It was a great pleasure to be mentored by Vladimir. First a walk he inspires me with his achievements and wide experience in topics related to business, and startups. Even before meeting Vladimir, I already had certain results, though now he helps me to get to the next level in my startup. Yes, it is not easy. My brain is overheating while trying to absorb all the information and implement the advice into the startup. But we are moving step by step. I have to say that in addition to business knowledge, the mentor has a large life wisdom. He gave me really helpful pieces of advice on life structuring and a more conscious approach. The main topics we are working on are: - structuring the startup - defining the target audience - focusing on the most important actions and results - defining life goals, and moderating them to become satisfied in the life There is a long path ahead. I am looking forward to becoming the best version of myself and reaching the goals I've set to achieve. The fact that I am not alone on that path gives me energy and increases the certainty that I will reach the mountain peak.

I am very pleased with my experience so far with Vladimir as a mentor. He has offered very helpful advice and exercises that have helped me collect my thoughts and refine my career goals. I am thankful for him holding me accountable to the things I said I would do. I've had many outstanding items on the to-do list that I viewed as difficult/daunting tasks, such as traveling to conferences and meeting people online, but they'd ultimately help me get closer to my goals. Happy to say I've finally crossed off many of those items off my list. Vladimir has also connected me with people from companies that I wanted to learn more about, pushed me to be more introspective and question my own opinions/beliefs, and provided excellent book recommendations based on my needs. I've only had 3 sessions with Vladimir thus far but I can say that I've already had a significant shift in my mindset and outlook on life, and I hope it will continue this way. Expect to meet every 2-3 weeks for ~45 minutes per session. You will need the time in between sessions to complete "homework assignments," which are action items that Vladimir will assign to you as you share your needs.
