He has accumulated several startups in the field of online education and recruiting, the most important of which is the online University "Netology group". In addition, in the list on the 20th place, thanks to the transaction with MTS in September 2018, there was a virtual labor exchange YouDo with an estimate of 88 million dollars, as well as in the top 20 returned service "Pro.ru" (12th place, estimated at 151 million dollars).
The fourth place in the list is taken by online retailer Wildberries, which, according to Forbes, increased the number of pickup points from 1.8 thousand to 2.799 thousand and managed to almost double its revenue. His estimate was $ 1.2 billion. In fifth place is the Ozon Group ($694 million), which also significantly increased in price — when calculating its value, last year's investments of MTS were taken into account, which consistently increased its share in the online hypermarket.
At the same time, some companies have worsened their positions in the rating compared to the previous year or even dropped out of it, despite the claimed revenue growth. It is reported that this is due to a change in the methodology of the study: this year Forbes was more focused on the expertise of venture funds and consulting companies operating in the Russian market, as well as multipliers of transactions held in Russia. As a result, the Forbes rating was left by KupiVip Group and Mamba.
