About Yuriy

I have an idea, working service prototype website, I invest money on the start, I manage a team of developers and I need a co-founder who can do business development, funds raising and be a CEO in New York.

I am looking for a co-founder with experience in managing startups willing to invest his knowledge, time and connections into the business rather then her/his money. My startup is in the internet/technology/retail fashion industry. It has a really huge potential as it is absolutely global, highly scalable.

The business is no on the seed phase (pre-commercialization stage). So we still need the proof of our concept, our business idea should be tested for its viability. The basic research has been completed by talking to people, but the commercial capabilities are not yet proven.

About Me

I am 46, married, 6 kids from 22y to 3mo. I am the owner of some companies in Ukraine, USA (DE), and Hong Kong. My main business is in Ukraine - import from China and wholesale/retail sales.

My extra business is online, In 2000 I organized and then sold away to Canada one of the first Internet site builders http://kemford.com - what is funny, it is still online in the way it was sold 14 years ago.

Last years I had several other online projects, like a WordPress club for which my team had developed tens of themes and plugins but the project did not bring good money. Another project of mine for Youtube marketing has brought to me more then $400K in profit in two years, so I know the taste of success.
