The one tough decision Vitaly never looks back on was moving from his solid finance career (he is ex PwC and The Carlyle Group) to start a business of investing in innovations taking a personal risk to fail and loose it all. The lessons learned: resilience, discipline and optimism. The results earned over 10 years: raised and structured US$55 million seed and early stage investments; an international project portfolio spanning biotech, consumer internet and waste treatment. Beyond equity investment, Future Matters Venture Capital is taking an active approach focusing on entrepreneurs and projects that have a greater potential to take their ideas into real and meaningful businesses in the areas of life that matter most to people. Because future matters.
