Meet our Mentors: Ilya Kravtsov, CEO at PouchNATION

Tell us a bit about yourself

I’ve been involved in the South East Asian startup scene for almost 10 years by now. I started a few companies myself, scaled, raised multiple rounds of financing (everything from pre-seed to Series B rounds). I also advised several VC funds and entrepreneurs. So I can say in the past 10 years I’ve seen a lot and from different angles and perspectives. I am passionate about helping entrepreneurs not to make the same mistakes I’ve done. I am also very familiar with topics related to market entry and fundraising. I am currently director of 8 different entities in 6 different markets so I can share a lot of insights.
