Why have I created this page?

Years ago, I bought my own domain in order to make sure that nobody was going to launch a website in my name (after all, Vasilij Brandt is not a very common name out there..). It has never been my intention to launch a website; however, I still created a personal page back in 2019, but without putting it live before the end of 2021. In the beginning, it was first a personal CV that was published, but since I’ve had (and still have!) a lot of great entrepreneurial learnings from the development of Blazar Capital, I’ve decided to share some of my learnings on a continuous basis, so that other entrepreneurs and E-Commerce enthusiasts can take some of the learnings and use them in their favour.
