Short Bio - Nastas's Profile
International Venture capital investor and adviser to institutional investors. Past & present member, Board of Directors, in five American & seven Russian companies.
After creating my 1st US venture capital tech fund in 1986, I took the Michigan fund model to Canada in 1992, ‘missionary’ selling it to investors and creating my 1st international fund. From Canada, I personally led expansion & created funds in Europe (2), then Africa (3), Russia (2) and Kazakhstan (1), once again employing a bootstrapped, ‘missionary selling’ model that utilized relationship building to raise $ from pension, gov’t, sovereign wealth & corporate investors. Increased assets managed from $4 million to >$500 million, an increase of >100x.
