Denis Nazarenko, a builder from Russia, has made a name for himself as the mini Zuckerberg of the social networking world. After realizing that creating chats for tenants in apartment buildings could attract customers to his company, Aquarius, which performs repairs in 18 cities across Russia, he decided to monetize and sell advertising in the chat rooms. As the number of residents’ chats grew to over 100 thousand across 40 cities, he recognized the need for a new messenger platform that could manage such a large audience. Thus, he created his own platform called “Neighbors” which has already entered its MVP stage and is starting to attract a massive audience.
Creating a social network from scratch is no easy feat, and Denis Nazarenko understands this well. He has invested 1.5 years of his time and $220,000 monthly project costs to develop the Neighbors application. However, the project is fully sponsored by his already successful “Newcomer Chat” project, which generates more than $2 million in revenue each month through advertising.
The Neighbors social network has enormous potential and has already shown promising results during preliminary tests, with a recommendation indicator of a “Great Future.” With plans to expand internationally and create chats of apartment buildings around the world, the company has already established a team of 80 people managed by Denis Nazarenko himself, who resides in Dubai.
Despite his busy schedule, which leaves him with practically no free time, Denis Nazarenko still manages to indulge in his passion for aerobatics on his L29 Dolphin jet. He performs in group flights in pairs of 3-4 aircraft, showcasing his passion and skill outside of the business world.
Denis Nazarenko’s success story is an inspiration to aspiring entrepreneurs and business owners who seek to create a unique platform that solves a problem and benefits society. By creating a social network for neighbors, he has enabled people to connect with each other and solve house issues, ultimately leading to the growth of his own business. With his sights set on the international market, there’s no telling how far Denis Nazarenko and his company, Aquarius, will go.
