— How did the idea of launching your company come into being?
— Since 2013, while still studying at the university in Almaty, I started working as an English teacher in various centers.

In 2017, finally, after gaining managerial experience in two extreme educational projects, I, however, listened to my friends, who were quite "ik" in marketing and for some time already pushed me to the idea of ​​opening my own school.

— How did you start? Were there any difficulties during the launch?
— We started pretty quickly in mid-September. As I remember now, I quit my job at a school already well-known throughout the city, where I put a lot of effort into development.

Across the road, or rather, through the junction, an interesting coworking space, business factory, awaited me, where, by the way, your CEO Beimbet also started :)

In general, our tactics were simple, since the product was already ready and tested. With the same friends, we shot several viral videos in the Esentai Towers area, where in some of them I even cosplayed Nurlan Baydilda, a notoriously popular entrepreneur, and ran a budget of $250-300. The videos played for several days and brought us a bunch of applications, both from students and from young teachers who wanted to start working. It was a sensation ????

Another cool memory: when we had not yet stopped at the new office, and it was necessary to conduct interviews, and I did it in the Travelers coffee shop ????
Over time, I realized that in business a lot is decided by speed! The speed of decision-making, the speed of translating ideas and hypotheses into actions.
