Making it in the corporate is quite challenging. Upcoming entrepreneurs face many hurdles, which force most of them to drop out and get involved in other ventures. Alexei is a different crop of entrepreneur altogether. He is the kind that leaves behind a lasting impression and paves way for the success of his successors.
Mr. Beltyukov’s Philanthropy
The Russian born millionaire and philanthropist is dedicated to ensuring that startups have a source of funding and a source of business guidance. He does this through Endemic Capital, a company that he established in 2013. LinkedIn shows that he rose from humble beginnings in his home country to the upper echelons of the business world, which has motivated him to fund several philanthropic causes. He helps his fellow nationals to start businesses. He also seeks opportunities in business schools across the globe for them, so that their corporate skills can be sharpened.
Alexei graduated from INSEAD in 1997 with a Master’s in Business Administration. This set him on the path of entrepreneurship. His Alma matter has helped him establish the Russian Alumni Scholarship at the institution, which provides scholarships to Russian students attending the institution. He has also partnered with the government of Russia to provide consultancy and guidance to the Skolkovo Foundation. This initiative provides grants and openings for Russian upstarts to gain a foothold in their respective industries, and also spread outside the nation’s borders.
Trailing Alexei’s Business Path
Immediately after graduation from business school, Beltyukov embarked on his successful entrepreneurial journey.
