“Vitaly Golomb is very experienced and a real serial entrepreneur. The person you trust from the first meeting. He gives useful recommendations and puts everything to its place.”
“Vitaly helped us at instudies.com so much with the expertise in market strategy and design development. He also was very useful with his recommendations on how we should present our product. The greatest thing is that it took him just few hours to improve what we've been doing for a long time. Fantastic!”
“Vitaly was super helpful in the process to get the grant at TechPeaks, he really helped to "simplify", to focus the message and inspire to understand how design and visual communication is important when pitching. It took him 30 secs to get the solution for what it took me weeks to figure out!”
“I had an opportunity to talk to Vitaly about my business idea at Techpeaks Accelerator. (www.techpeaks.eu) As a mentor, Vitaly was very quick to point out the flaws in our business idea/model and gave us a completely different perspective. After we did more research on the idea, we decided to wrap it off and focus on something else. I would like to thank him for saving few precious months (or even years) of ours. If you are new into startups, Vitaly is the person to talk to. He will challenge your assumptions and your reasoning, but you will end up with something much more concrete and realistic. Vitaly is a great mentor and I highly recommend him.”
“Vitaly did a great job helping me polish my pitch @Venture Summit 2013 - he is a fantastic mentor and very helpful and nice person.”
