WHAT OUR PORTFOLIO COMPANIES SAY ABOUT US
Valery Mayushkin
СЕО UR-LI
The main advantage of Pulsar VC's program is the focus on international scaling. In the course of the program we did a lot of pitching in English. And also - powerful networking on the Russian market. We communicated with the largest companies, receiving inbound calls from company representatives, not the other way around.
Yevgeny Gaffarov
СЕО YouTool
Thanks to the Pulsar VC accelerator our revenues are growing by 300% every month and we have determined the vector of our project's development. From a business point of view, those are major indicators. Without participation in the program we wouldn't have been able to reach that figure. It would have been much slower.
Natalia Feldberg
CEO та Founder Beauty Tech
Participation in the Pulsar VC acceleration program helped us evaluate our chances of entering different markets, understand all the advantages and disadvantages of these markets, and clearly decide where to go. Thanks to the Pulsar VC program, we have contacts with Japanese investors who are interested in us. And our immediate goal is to enter the Japanese market.
Oleg Borisov
СЕО ZEVC
Due to the experience of working with numerous startups, Pulsar VC helps to systematize internal processes and avoid mistakes typical for newcomers. For example, many of our misconceptions have been worked out and removed together with the program mentors, as well as focusing on promising, commercially profitable areas.
Yury Orlov
СЕО TOUCH
Very hard work has been done and we have worked closely with mentors and invited speakers who have always made us think about how to make our product even better. The program experts helped us to "finish" the idea. The program was extremely helpful for us in terms of packaging for investors, refining the presentation, and understanding how to communicate with investors and how to go to rounds.
