Fast Lane Ventures Company, a market leader in creating of new Internet businesses, announced the opening of its first regional office in Ivanovo - Fast Lane Academia. The office in Ivanovo has been working since May 2012, it employs 50 people - recent graduates and young professionals, each of whom has different functions - from IT support to copywriting.
The main objective of the regional expansion is to create a system of business training and portfolio companies support with quality, motivated and affordable experts.
Marina Treschova, the president of the Fast Lane Ventures holding, considers the act as a natural stage in the development of the company: Internet is one of the fast growing and promising markets in Russia. We launch a new company every 1-2 months, and our need for new personnel is growing faster than the ability of Moscow to provide us with new people. We believe that we will systematically solve this problem if we start to train new staff ourselves – and more over, Internet business is not taught in colleges.
The choice of Ivanovo caused (in addition to geographical proximity to Moscow) by sufficient quantity of staff in the region. In Ivanovo region there are 10 public, 6 private universities and 4 branches of state universities, providing high quality education.
According to the Governor of Ivanovo Region Mikhail Menya, Ivanovo is traditionally considered Russia's largest student city. Each year, Ivanovo universities train more than five thousand specialists, and we are very interested in giving to these young people an opportunity to apply their knowledge for the benefit of their native city.
Employees of the Ivanovo branch will be trained by the experts of the Fast Lane Ventures central office, as well as acquire necessary knowledge and skills while working on the development and promotion of Internet companies.
We need specialists in various fields - operators for call centers, programmers, analysts, experts in search engine optimization and designers - Marina Treschova adds. I’d like to say without exaggeration that the guys who have been selected have a unique chance to find a new demanded profession and carve out a career in one of the fast growing markets in Russia.
