In early December Gary and Derek traveled to Sochi to speak at the Winter Island Intensive. This event brought together 1,500 entrepreneurs from companies focused on the export of digital and education technologies and products.
"I am so proud of Zamir Shukhov, CEO and Partner at GVA," said GSD Venture Studios CEO and Co-founder Gary Fowler. "He has built GVA into a global powerhouse for innovation and technology, and I was thrilled to be able to speak with him on stage in Sochi."
"Moderating the Planning Your Expansions panel was a great experience," said GSD Venture Studios COO and Co-founder Derek Distenfield. "I had the privilege of guiding four smart and driven entrepreneurs through a session packed full of information, and the crowd responded very positively."
GSD Venture Studios travels the world inviting resilient teams to establish partnerships that ensure organizations grow the right way, without games or gimmicks. Unlike traditional investors, GSD executives take senior operational (often co-founder) roles in these companies, capitalizing on their trusted reputation, experiences and network to drive explosive growth.
