ABOUT ME
First business at the age of 19
In the second year of studying at the KhAI there was a turning point in my life. At that time, I managed to work as a loader, furniture assembler and merchandiser, but month after month passed, and it became clear that all this was not mine.
Back in high school, I was dabbling in web design and programming, which is why I entered the CAI with such a strong intention, and during my studies, programming became the only intellectual work that could allow me to earn money. So, at the age of 19, my friend and I had an idea, and the idea turned into the first campaign we founded - the web studio Artjoker. At first, it was random projects for $50, posting leaflets on the Barabashovo market, calling on newspaper ads. And now it is a company with hundreds of employees with clients from 28 countries!
Fintech evangelist
In 2016, my partners and I launched MyCredit - an online lending service, which is currently in the TOP-3 in Ukraine and is estimated at $20 million. My second fintech product, OnCredit, was launched in Vietnam in 2019.
In 2020, we launched the mobile fintech product ClickCredit, whose target audience is young people. Now we are actively developing it with partners.
Mentoring activities
In 2015, my friend Vadym Bortnyk, CEO of Freshline, and I actively spoke at various business events and at some point realized that the demand for business education is extremely high.
So we created a business school "Double Portion" - a six-week course, the winner of which opened an online school and earned real money right during the course! In addition, I taught at Kharkiv Polytechnic University specialty "Digital Marketing".
Public activity
Since 2017, I have been actively involved in the Kharkiv IT Cluster - a public idea-based organization with which we develop the technological business environment in the city.
On November 12, 2020, Kharkiv IT Cluster presented the Yaroslav the Wise Scientific Library of NSW with a state-of-the-art book scanner and computer equipment for it.
Sports
Sport is an important part of my life. Since childhood I paid a lot of attention to football, boxing and even kickboxing. Now I run 3-4 times a week and train. Sport for me is a source of not only health, but also energy for life and work.
Overcoming yourself
In 2018, I conquered Mount Elbrus, climbing to the top of 5642 meters above sea level. This year, but with the Artjoker team, we conquered our Ukrainian peak - Hoverla (2061m).
I regularly look for ways to go beyond the limits of what is possible and prove to myself first of all that all limitations are only in our head. Hiking in the mountains is a great way to overcome yourself.

Notes
Do not promise what you cannot do. You can say and promise anything, but only your actions speak about you.
The moment you think that you have achieved something 100%, you start moving backwards.
A leader must be an optimist. It is optimism that gives you the energy not to quit halfway, as well as to charge your team for the result.

Always ask yourself
"What can be improved?"
The difference between good and great is that nothing great is done at the first try.
