Mr.Ilya was extremely insightful and thoughtful in his approach towards answering all of my queries. We had a lengthy discussion surrounding the consulting industry and the do's and dont'(s) of this space. He backed all his examples and insights with anecdotes that enabled me to envisage the landscape better. 1 hour with him just flew by as he was charming and fun. An extremely valuable session overall!

Ilya provided plenty of extremely helpful advice about the product strategy and helped me to find out-of-the-box solutions for a couple of product management issues in my startup. Ilya has given very detailed, actionable recommendations. Also, he has shown high interest in providing me support and, even after the session, answered several questions and sent me valuable materials. I have asked Ilya to become a mentor for my startup and have sessions regularly. I recommend everyone to reach Ilya if you would like to get advice about your startup

Very helpful advice on all sorts of topics on the subject I brought up. I liked how you often recapped a question before answering it, showing me that you understood it. The suggestion for market research was particularly useful (also something I hadn't thought about much before). Lots of takeaways and notes from this mentoring session. I'd recommend you to other people interested in startup development!

The Session with IIya was very helpful, I love the fact that complex things are explained well enough that they now look basic, I had no choice but to write things down because there is a lot of information coming out and I am so happy I was given the privilege to talk to him. Thank you so much for showing up.
