Krestone is a research and technical development (RTD) lab and builder studio designed to originate ideas, and design and develop pioneering technologies that creatively destroy and disrupt existing technologies in the market. The structure of Krestone allows us to test many ideas at once and turn the best of them into products and companies, attracting the human and financial capital necessary to bring them to market.
The core to any company is the development team. At Krestone the team includes brilliant and beautiful minds from KPI, the Kyiv Polytechnic Institute, also known as the MIT of Europe. The team comes from the Institute of Applied Systems Analysis; Institute of Special Communication and Information Security; Institute of Mechanics and Machine-Building; Institute of Physics and Engineering (connected with Sun Microsystems and IBM) as well as the Departments of Aviation and Space, Applied Mathematics (connected with Freescale Semiconductor), Engineering & Physics, Informatics and Computer Engineering (connected with Cisco Systems).
The Institute has a tradition and legacy of innovation and founders include Dmitri Mendeleev, who created the Periodic Table of Elements; and Nikolay Zhukovsky, the founding father of modern aero and hydrodynamics, who was the first scientist to explain mathematically the origin of aerodynamic lift; as well as Vladimir Zworykin, the pioneer of television technology who played an important role in the practical development of television in the 1930s.
Notable alumni include rocket scientist, Sergey Korolyov, the father of practical astronautics and designer of jet engines, as well as Boris Bukreev, a prominent mathematician known for his works in complex functions, differential equations, and non-Euclidean geometry.
The current portfolio companies are all based on patent-pending new business ideas designed to revolutionize the market.
Krestone partners with venture capital funds, private equity investors and crowdfunding platforms to provide access to concept and seed stage investment opportunities.
We originate ideas and leverage our team and resources to turn ideas into features, products and successful companies. We enable our investors to purchase an equity stake in portfolios of companies at a very early stage to reduce risk and maximize returns.
