Summary

I wanted to be an astronaut when I was growing up. I even went to Georgia Tech university for aerospace engineering (rocket science) to get closer to that dream. I will one day achieve that goal.

In the meantime, I have learned the consumer internet industry from the ground up while helping build badoo.com in Moscow and then set up the London office, constructing Badoo piece by piece scaling from 0 to 70 million users. I continued on to lead several more large global tech projects (as you can see in detail below) and mentor many startups globally.

I now ensure that all the talented teams at AnchorFree work effectively to achieve the company’s mission of providing a secure uncensored internet to a billion people. We have already achieved over 400 million downloads of our application Hotspot Shield.

I believe the internet's ability to distribute knowledge and real power can drastically improve people's lives and work every day to make this happen.

I also have a massive interest in how technology and consumer adoption in the health sector can lengthen and improve people's lives. Will explore this more in the years to come.

Feel free to contact me to discuss ideas.

Answer: "Hey Carmen! Thanks for the donation! So I have cofounded two orgs. One in New York which is the Social Good For-Profit meetup (rebranding and launching soon), and a similar one called Impact.tech out in the San Francisco area. The purpose of both is to bring together and support entrepreneurs that are creating or running business that have a substantial positive impact on our world AND have a scalable business model. This means that they have a business model that makes them enough revenue to grow and make a larger and larger impact. We push forward the idea (becoming more and more popular) that businesses can be a strong vehicle to make our world a better place. Feel free to reach out directly at mg@impact.tech and I can see how best you can get involved. Thanks for the question!"
