Skyeng is an online English school of the new generation. We are professionals who help urban citizens learn English even when they are pressed for time.
The school was founded in August 2012. But its story began in 2010 when a MIPT student Georgy Solovyev came up with the idea of learning a foreign language via internet. He tried studying online with a teacher who lived in another city and found these classes very effective.
He came back to the idea of online language school two years later, after he had graduated and worked two years on other projects. He began to recruit the team, to look for teachers, students and investors.
Georgy co-founded the school together with Khariton Matveev and Denis Smetnev, MIPT graduates, and Andrey Yaunzem, a MSTU graduate.
Spring 2013, the project got its first investment of $30,000. The second round of investment — $300,000 — followed in autumn of the same year.
January 2014, Alexander Laryanovsky, the former Yandex Global Development Director, joined the management. He became a co-investor and and executive partner.
In August of the same year, Skyeng launched its own educational platform Vimbox. It creates an online classroom and makes language learning more effective and smooth. At the moment there is no similar product on the market.

Co-founder of Skyeng, a MIPT graduate. During 2007–2011, Denis was an organiser and a judge of the All-Russia Physics Olympiad.
Before joining Skyeng, he worked as a Development Manager at Innova Systems and as a researcher in the Physics Institute.
Alexander joined the Skyeng team in January 2014. During 2008–2014 he was supervising the launch of Yandex, the biggest Russian IT company, onto the Turkish market. Before that he worked as a Chief Marketing Officer at Novotelecom, the biggest telecom company in Novosibirsk.
