Alexei Beltyukov Gives Back To Help Others
After the breakup of the Soviet Union, one of the byproducts of casting off communism was the emergence of individual businessmen and entrepreneurs making their mark on the new soviet economy. One of these new entrepreneurs was Alexei Beltyukov. Alexei initially trained in the medical field as a doctor to support his family but later dropped his studies in medicine to concentrate on business. This was a particularly trying time for him because in addition to coming up with the money to pay for his business education he also had to care for his wife and children. He did, however, find a way to accomplish his business education goals by receiving scholarships and financial aid from various sources. For his schooling in business, he attended and graduated from INSEAD one of the leading business schools in the world. They have campuses in France, Singapore, and even Abu Dhabi and employ over 148 esteemed faculty members. All of INSEAD’s campuses have a distinctly international flavor and are the perfect place for not only learning exceptional business skills that will carry you through life but a place where you can also make new friends and contacts that will be a benefit to you when you begin your business career. After his graduation, Alexei then applied for and received a scholarship to participate in INSEAD’s MBA program. This program happens to be ranked as the number one MBA program available by the world’s leading business magazine the Financial Times. The Times primarily focuses on the latest business news and all economic and political events that affect commerce worldwide. Alexei Beltyukov received his Masters of Business Administration Degree from INSEAD in 1997.
Alexei Beltyukov is now a budding Russian entrepreneur and philanthropist. He formed Endemic Capital in 2013 as a resource to provide angel funding for Russian start-up companies. He has also started other businesses like A-Ventures Ltd. to financially assist other struggling Russian companies. He has also worked with his alma mater to help establish an Alumni Scholarship fund to provide financial support to Russians accepted into INSEAD University. He has also provided direction and assistance in helping arrange financial grants and other opportunities for Russian technology start-up companies in addition to helping entrepreneurs.
Alexei grants much of his success to his education and the friends and colleague he made while attending INSEAD University. He is adamant that if it weren’t for his ability to go to INSEAD on scholarship that he wouldn’t have the breadth of understanding to successfully learn about business issues. He is also thankful for how much the scholarships and financial aid he received while attending INSEAD were instrumental in his success. Because of this thankfulness for the financial aid Alexei, and his friend Olesia Chikunova, and other former INSEAD students have initiated the Russian Alumni Scholarship Fund and have collectively pledged over $150,000.00 to winning participants to help pay their tuition costs to INSEAD. Another huge endeavor from Beltyukov is education related. With Solvy, Alexei hopes to create a platform that can be used worldwide. He’s also an author, starting his published works through Lulu.
