From Friendship To Payday And Beyond

Andrei Baronov and Ratmir Timashev co-founded one of the most successful software companies of the last decade, Veeam, a leader in data protection software and up-and-comer in the nascent data management market. But with the planned acquisition of Veeam by New York-based private equity company Insight Partners, and the announced intent to move its headquarters from Switzerland to somewhere in the U.S. to pave the way to further growth, the two are transitioning to more of a consulting role with Veeam while they consider their next moves.

Timashev, in an exclusive meeting with CRN, said that he and Baronov have been friends since their mid-1980s youth in Russia, and have a strong chemistry between them. Therefore, they will be looking soon at where to point their entrepreneurial experience next.

Timashev also shared his multi-part secret to success as an entrepreneur. It's a simple plan. Here's a hint: Be Facebook, not Myspace.
