Kyrill began his career as a risk manager in the largest Russian bank. He started during the financial sector turmoil which was quiet exciting. However, the excitement went after some months and he started to feel as being part of a „partly effective, partly uneffective very large machine“. He speaks about his decision to leave the bank, how his family and friends reacted and how he built his first startup with a friend. Today Kyrill is a successful manager for the German crowdfunding scene and will share his insights in two other audio podcasts.
