Ambassador of RVVZ Foundation
With a lifelong passion for innovation and social change, David previously co-founded and led an international education project in collaboration with Stanford University called the Stanford US-Russia Forum (SURF). Today SURF operates internationally with a large alumni base and an impressive track record of speakers including former president of Russia Dmitry Medvedev and the former US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice.
In 2010 David moved to London to embark on a graduate programme at the London School of Economics (LSE). After the LSE he joined as an entrepreneur at one of the leading London-based digital advertising companies. While working in strategy and business development, David gained a deep understanding of the online publishing world and was inspired to found his own tech start-up called Gitoon where he is currently working as CEO.
By recently becoming a RVVZ Foundation Ambassador, David continues to pursue his passion for education.
