Dmitry Askenov’s enterprising achievements have earned him a place on the American business magazine’s best-of list.
A former Bellerbys student has been listed in Forbes 30 Under 30 2016 for his achievements running his own digital company in America.
The business magazine named Dmitry Aksenov alongside 600 of the ‘best of the best’ after screening 15,000 of America’s most important young entrepreneurs.
Aksenov featured in the Enterprise Tech category alongside business partner Mikhail Naumov for his work in co-founding DigitalGenius, an artificial intelligence solutions company. Together they raised $3 million from investors in May 2015.
At the age of 23 Aksenov is the youngest in his category, making his achievements all the more impressive.
Dmitry grew up in Russia and later moved to the UK where he studied the Business Foundation programme at Bellerbys. He then progressed to study BA Business at Bath University.
“Bellerbys gave me the insight into the workings of business life in the UK and the University of Bath brought out the acumen to be ahead of the competition and to think big!” - Dmitry
