VALERY SIDORENKO
FOUNDER OF THE PORTAL

I’m on the Portal from the first day of the project so this Portal has already become a part of me and vice versa. Therefore, it’s better to talk about it.

Getting the opportunity implementing the most courageous plans and to see the result of your work, to make independent decisions and to take responsibility for them, to create workplaces and organize a strong team to move mountains, to do things you trust in undividedly and to believe in that you do — all this what attracts the most in being an entrepreneur and motivates "to start business" despite all possible risks and uncertainty.

A few years ago, being a entrepreneur, with my friend we created the Portal of Entrepreneurs SMALLBUSINESS.RU to help those who want to start their own business, to understand core things of the activity before making key decisions in their careers. For now, the Portal has grown and became useful not only for beginners, but for experienced businessmen as well. It is read and well recognized by many, signing we move in the right direction. We are all related to the Portal edition department, our friends, partners, colleagues and those for whom the subject of business is close and who believe that small and medium business play a key role in building the strong, successful, free and democratic country.

VICTOR ZAZHITSKY
JOURNALIST

I’ve joined the Portal team quite recently, at the end of 2012. Before that I was working in advertising, then at the Department of Education. While doing my job at the Department I was studying at MGUPI. My life is full of different kind of hobbies: I like traveling, reading good books, photography… And still I like to put commas, to correct a hyphen for a dash and to participate in new interesting projects!

KATERINA TRUBITSYNA
JOURNALIST, PR-MANAGER

Having a degree in philology, I was working as a tutor of English, then I got an experience in PR section at the Department of Moscow Education. While working at Smallbusiness my job became my lifestyle, what really unites all of us, and I found myself. I like to live the dynamic life, changing myself, looking for and finding out non-standard solutions for non-standard problems. My vital credo is "There are two exits always. Even if you are eaten."

TATYANA ODINTSOVA
JOURNALIST, AUTHOR OF THE PORTAL

If I don't write a single line a day, that day seems empty for me. Since I have SMALLBUSINESS.RU in my life I stopped having empty days! My career as a journalist has started more than 10 years ago. During this time I tried myself in different styles, genres and I’m still open for all new things which are interesting, prevent from stopping on reached and encourage me to move forward towards literature and professional tops.

ANASTASIA YAKOVLEVA
COORDINATOR OF THE PORTAL

Since 2008 I have been doing different kind of researches in the field of small business, have a number of scientific publications and wrote business books published in Germany and Russia. I got awards in sections «sociology of management» and «marketing» participating in international conferences named after Lomonosov (which were held by Moscow State University (MSU), 2011-2012), and became a laureat of Kareev’s winning prize at MSU in 2013. These days I’m getting my second university degree in TV-radio journalism.

EKATERINA STEPANOVA
DESIGNER

When I was 14 I found myself interested in creativity. That time I spent many days doing Graffity. Today I’m doing professional work in digital art, web design and an interior painting. My acquaintance with SMALLBUSINESS.RU took place in 2011. Activity on the Portal is something special for me what inspires people to create and work independently. My life motto is “If you aren't able or you don't know how, it is better to start from the most difficult project and you’ll do it. The most important thing here is not to be afraid". I believe, this is a good advice for new as well as matured entrepreneurs.

ANASTASIA KHOVRINA
JOURNALIST

Having graduated from the higher education institution in "Economy" where I was deeply involved into students’ communication regarding startup activity in Moscow, and even a short time ago I couldn't even think of journalism. But I’m in it. And it takes great pleasure telling the readers of SMALLBUSINESS.RU about main activities and events occurring in the capital and regions, as well as carrying out interviews with successful businessmen, investors, politicians who are related to the field of small business. I hope our materials are useful for you!

EKATERINA SHALAEVA

I graduated from the Dubna University, sociology department.

My leisure time I spend walking outside and making fulling toys.
