Gary is also an author, speaker and an internet personality.

 

In The News !

Regarded as the top most social media expert and a serial entrepreneur, he came out on a world wide podcast to discuss why entrepreneurship isn’t for everyone. Placing facts on how 99% of start-ups fail, he stated that media may make someone look like an overnight success but only a successful entrepreneur can shed light on the real story. Gary believes that soon people in their 60s and 70s will be making online businesses and making millions and not someone in their 20s, because people think Facebook and Uber was developed by ‘kids’ so they know it all. He has an idea of turning retirement homes into incubators. Well that’s something!

Serguei Beloussov, is a man used to getting his way and with little patience for tardiness, but willing to accommodate other opinions too. Certainly the first part explains why, in 2013, he returned to take back the reins of the company he had founded in 2001 and which he had effectively – in terms of managing the company at least – left in 2007. For Beloussov, that future is the cloud. He and his partners founded Acronis in 2001 in Singapore as a business unit within SWsoft, a server automation and virtualisation software company and the parent company of Parallels Inc, which Beloussov also founded.  he wants Acronis to become a billion-dollar company. More than once, at the Malaysian launch, the Russian-born entrepreneur emphasised that he is now a Singaporean citizen.

He remains a senior partner at Runa Capital venture fund, which amongst other areas, has invested in companies developing teleportation technologies, and executive chairman of Parallels. Before returning to Acronis, he had also cofounded Qwave Capital venture fund, created to support advanced quantum technologies.
