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