A Unicorn builder has already joined us as a venture partner! We are glad to announce Anton Antich, an early stage investor and a COO of an AI integration platform Intento, and an ex VP of Veeam, a Swiss cloud data management company acquired by Insight Venture Partners for $5bln, joining our management team. Anton also ran business development units of Microsoft and VMware, as well as consulted, advised and became an investor in startups which have become a Unicorn and mid-size companies, such as Acronis, and Tricentis, to name a few. With the addition of Anton, the management team of The Untitled Ventures has direct experience of two unicorns, early stage investment of EPAM (now Nasdaq listed) and the building of Veeam. EPAM and Veeam are examples of the strategy that The Untitled Ventures executes bridging Eastern and Western Europe.
