I have advised 100+ individuals and 30+ companies. I am a regular mentor at Techstars, Columbia Startup Works and NSF. Recently I have become an Entrepreneur-in-Residence at Cornell. I am able to back up my experiences with academic theories that I have learned from my MBA and professional coaching training.

I like to take mixed approach to mentoring where I mix a series of questions with details from my actual start-up and executive experience.

Last four months I was mentored by Vladimir. The first sessions were dedicated to goals in general. Then we started discussing my startup. Vladimir helped me to prioritize my goals and activities. Under his guidance, I gained more focus, keeping me on track to achieve the desired results.

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.
