About Dimitry

Experienced, full-time entrepreneur with core strengths in leadership, strategy, sales, biz dev, fundraising, marketing, partnerships, engineering and operations management. Passionate about building highly effective teams and inspiring them to innovate in development of leading-edge solutions to real-world problems.

My forte' is turning a promising tech idea into a validated business model, followed by developing and executing a sound strategy for growing it into a thriving, profitable company.
My career includes CEO posts with a diverse line-up of startups, as well as senior positions with global companies like IBM, Cisco and AT&T. I am currently looking for the "right" co-founder(s) to build our next great company together.

My areas of expertise include B2B and B2C solutions in AI, Ed Tech, MSP/Data Center, IT infrastructure, digital marketing, e-commerce and social benefit. This is just a partial list, so if you're searching for a business co-founder to develop an idea in a different domain, I would be open to conversation... Chances are, I worked in that domain at some point in my career. My key objective is to team up with co-founders who share my values, with potential for a great team "chemistry". If you are an entrepreneur who is looking for someone with my background, let's connect!
