Russian businessman Alexei Beltyukov is known for a handful of successful startups and for his philanthropy. The doctor turned businessman graduated from the INSEAD College with a degree in business after qualifying for a rare scholarship given to adult students hoping to improve their lives through an INSEAD College education.
Mr. Beltyukov is a Russian native and citizen, and continues to be heavily involved in government, business and philanthropy in his home country. He sponsors a scholarship for Russian citizens to attend and study business at INSEAD college. Alexei has also been appointed an economic development council member at the Russian Economic ministry.
One of Alexei’s startup companies is Endemic Capital, which is an angel investment firm that focuses on funding small Russian and Eastern European based startup companies. Endemic Capital helps fund innovative and creative entrepreneurs in Russia and Eastern Europe that would otherwise not be able to secure funding from traditional funding sources to grow and expand.
Another of Alexei Beltyukov‘s projects is New Gas Technologies. This company utilizes new developments in technology to derive energy from waste products in the petroleum industry. New Gas Technologies is proud to be a green company that provides additional sources of energy and jobs from a former waste product that was discarded.
Mechanicus, is another company that Alexei Beltyukov has founded. It is an auto repair shop brand that has several franchises throughout Russia. Alexei is looking to expand Mechanicus beyond Russia and into the Eastern European market into the future.
Alexei Beltyukov’s latest project is perhaps his most exciting and most meaningful. It is called Solvy and it is an online educational platform. The goal of Solvy is to help high school age students study and learn math better.
Solvy is considered revolutionary and has received the backing of educational and technology experts because it gives students the opportunity to solve problems in multiple ways. The software gives hints and tips to guide students towards the correct way of solving a problem but does not reveal the answers to them.
This new online program launched by Alexei forces students to think critically and try to solve the problem, and they must prove how they arrived at the answer. Teachers can customize the problems and material to fit the needs of their classrooms. The interactive approach for students has made it a standout new learning software. Instructors are also happy with the ease of use of the platform.
