Student cases
Anton Lobinstev
Founder of Bebop Brands US, a restaurant franchise, and tech advisor at startups
At the MSA program, I launched a web3 startup. It bridges real-world and web3 by offering fully automated copyright protection for digital assets. We have already tested the product for 78,000 avatars for a gaming metaverse.

Master of Startup Administration changed the way I looked at pitching and fundraising. I used to consider myself inferior to people who had financial resources. I thought that those with money decide for those who have ideas and energy. Now I have realized that this is far from being the case....
Oleg Maliy
Founder of GARD, a next-gen bank for gamers, CBDO at Cryptoprocessing.io
After joining the MSA program, I founded GARD, a next-gen bank for gamers. I applied to the program with two goals in mind: get more expertise for my projects by solving real-life startup cases learn the ins and out of entering the US market: how to interview customers, how to assess and grind different channels, and how to raise funds.

The program paid off, and I saw firsthand that guidance and consistent review from US-based venture capitalists and mentors skyrocketed my learning and progress...
Konstantin Gamarnik
Founder of Aquajoy, serial entrepreneur with 15 years of experience
I have extensive entrepreneurial experience, but before the program, I was totally unfamiliar with the world of venture capital. I thought that money loves silence and that any investors would be intruding into my business. The program allowed me to look at VC financing differently: as a resource that helps me expand the business. Now I have the tools and the right frame of mind to grow a venture scalable startup.

At the MSA program, I launched Aquajoy, a floating suit, that helps learn to swim easily by increasing...
Ivan Lunegov
Operations Director at OLIMP Invest, startup mentor, 10 years in business consulting
Before the program, I used to be pretty disconnected from people building startups. So I enrolled in the MSA program to gain a competitive edge in venture capital and join a community of like-minded people.

The program was of high value in terms of practice. Three case studies helped me to make a deep dive into tech and startups: I learned where to look and what questions to ask to notice problems in startups straight away. I have already put my knowledge into practice...
Vladimir Esaulov
СTO at Katalyst, a restaurant management software company
As a tech guy, I joined the MSA program to supercharge my entrepreneurship skills and network. In the span of the program, I have already sorted out my existing knowledge and experience. I was able to broaden my non-technical perspective while my technical background was valued by my fellow students.

I liked working on a deep tech startup case, as it was so distant from my activities that I came up with out-of-the-box solutions helpful for my projects. This program encouraged me...
Peter Dyakov
Founder at Pompel.io, 20+ years in sales at IT vendor companies
While at the MSA program, I founded Pompel.io, a universal text analytics platform without the use of a traditional AI/ML-based approach.

I had a startup idea I was keen on and I joined the program to level myself up as a founder and to figure out how to take my idea from zero to one: how to prioritize the problems and industries that my startup’s technology can solve.

After 5 months of the program, I have a plan in mind...

Anton's story through his progress and achievements:
After 2 months of MSA training:
