Hi there! I'm Alex. I currently work for Microsoft's Cloud & Enterprise division, focusing on product & strategy aspects of Azure. Before that, I've spent two years in Chicago, getting an MBA and MS in Design Innovation from Kellogg School of Management and McCormick School of Engineering at Northwestern University.

Previously, I've spent 4 years at an early-stage VC fund called InVenture Partners, getting to work on over 40 transactions, including investments in GettOmetria, ChronextBusfor and Netology Group. While working in venture capital, I also co-founded and led product development at a mobile gaming startup.

Before that, I’ve earned a combined MSc/BSc in Mathematics from the Lomonosov Moscow State University.

Outside of work, I enjoy taking pictures and occasionally writing an odd post here and there. I also write at Evolution One, focusing on AI & machine learning.

You can always find me online at Facebook, LinkedInTwitter and Medium, or e-mail me.
