🕹 When the first covid wave hit and uncertainty was dominating the labor market, I gathered the Lithuanian tech community and companies that had open positions and built a simple Job board on google spreadsheets.
The response was great and within a couple of weeks we had :
- 40+ companies joined 🖥
- 500+ jobs offered 💼
- 25k+ talents reached 📈
✅ The incentive was supported by such companies as TransferGO, Revolut, Euromonitor International, Bank of Lithuania, Omnisend, 70VC, Telia, Hostinger, Tesonet and many more!
🔎 Now I'm taking this project to another level and today launching https://startupcv.lt/ , job board focused on the startup ecosystem and talents looking to start a career or find a new stop at the best tech companies hiring during Covid-19.
🚀 As this will skyrocket in the upcoming days, I'm offering Human IPO community to post job offers for free in January with the code "HUMANIPO" and get 40eur discounts on every listing this month.
Let me know what do you think, looking forward to accelerate this side hustle 💡

Another initiative that I would like to share with you is Online Agile lectures that I am doing.
The first, pilot version of a lecture I did can be found here:
The plan is to build the whole set of lectures with specific certification, that participants who listened to all of the episodes, would be able to apply for. This is planned to be done this February-March.
My goal here is to both – promote Agile Ways of Working and build up my own brand as Agile Trainer acknowledge widely in Lithuania, which at the end should increase my personal value.
In addition to the online “open” lectures I also teach Agile and Personal Finance Management in few universities in Lithuania.
Money I collect from IPO will also be used to push those lectures to more professional level and moving to be less dependent on other companies sponsoring this initiative.
Let me share some of the initiatives I am driving in my life next to my professional work.
One of it is just founded first Lithuanian podcast series about Agile that I am hosting, called "Ant Agile Sofos". Goal of a season 1 is to build our brand and sustainable group of listeners and starting season 2 in September 2021, there is a plan to monetize this activity.

This activity not only has potential to be monetized, but also contributes to my own image building as an experienced Agile Coach, which leads to increasing number of consultancy offers I get.
See you all on 27th of January in my launch on Human IPO at 9 PM EET!
Hello everyone! My launch date on Human IPO is now approved, so see you all on 27th of January, 9 PM EET!
Just got the wire from our anchor LP for the first US-based fund of Make Studios, our fund is officially live! For those who don't know what we are looking to invest in, here is our criteria:
There is a new vote for my shareholders on KmikeyM.com: Should I become a member of the LA Chapter of the Democratic Socialists? As of this writing it has 67% approval.
My IPO was fully subscribed in less than 24 hours. Wow! You, guys, are really amazing ;) Sky is the limit now?
While IPO is still in process the first investors don't delay and are already scheduling the redemption of hours bought to engage into mutually beneficial discussion on both for profit and impact investment related topics.
Since aiming to take my own company IPO thought why not go with my own face for starters.
Curious to see HumanIpo growing in the upcoming years, interesting social experiment indeed.
For those who decide to pick my time, I can say that in the past 5 years i became self thought businessman.
I do make mistakes each and every day, however every year little less :)
Would be a great pleasure to share my experience and hopefully save you some energy before making the same mistakes I did.
Money can't buy you love, like the Beatles said :) But in the middle of this wonderful winter, you can invest in my shares/time, 'cause I'm launching my IPO.
I always was a curious and open person, that's why I'm so thrilled about this opportunity. More than that, I'm so proud that I can represent the HR side because I do believe in People's importance in every business.
So the point is: if you believe in People and the importance of human-related things in this disruptive IT & Tech world, you can invest in my IPO. This can bring you some profit or exchange into my consultancy hours on HR, employee experience, employer branding, or other related topics.
The time is set on the 21st of January, 2021.
Let's make something splendid together!
44% subscribed in 5 hours. Well done, thank you. Can we do 100% in 24 hours?
New c-level candidates platform launch very soon. TopHeads rock!

I promised you there will be more news coming on my activities, and prospective sources for your knowledge based wealth creation. So let's start from NGO Accelerator.
On January 12, the selection of participants for the first NGO Accelerator for non-governmental organizations in Lithuania started. Social entrepreneurs are invited to a unique 14-month program, during which they will not only be provided with entrepreneurial and financial attraction knowledge, but also created infrastructure to test the acquired knowledge in practice with the help of professionals in different fields.
The uniqueness of the accelerator is a strong network of mentors and a training process based on good practices of start-ups (i.e. innovative young businesses) aimed at long-term impact. Participants will have the opportunity to consult with experts in different fields (business, law, public sector, advertising, etc.) on emerging issues, thus providing the necessary assistance in finding quality solutions throughout the program.
“The ecosystem of start-ups and various assistance to them in Lithuania is already quite well developed. However, in many cases, non-profit organizations addressing specific societal challenges have not yet had a real opportunity to reap the benefits of this ecosystem, ”said Marius Čiuželis, Member of the NGO Accelerator Jury and Selection Committee. "NGO Accelerator" will fill this vacuum and help such organizations to understand business principles faster, organize their activities more efficiently and thus achieve better results," notes M. Čiuželis.

Long time no see 👋
In upcoming days I am launching my website for @planas_gyvenimas (find the profile on instagram), primarily focusing on Lithuanian market. I am here on a mission to translate project management to simple language and talk to people about personal time management techniques. Products and services will be available to Lithuanians, but Upvote to stay tuned on my business journey!
Prospective investors from three countries already expressed their interest participate in my IPO - still few days to go.
I did it again. For the first time
This has happened to me more than once. I meet an interesting person. We talk, I ask, I listen. And then bang – those bright flashes of understanding. Things I am being told has long overshadowed the interview. Hey, this is more than a job, not this one.
Once upon a time, this happened when I heard a story about the tropical world and snow-birds, later about music and constellations.
And here it is again. I met several young people who sold their time. I know it sounds vague for most – just like data clouds or nanotechnology once used to be. However, here I am – with my first IPO – happily ready to share with those who like travel, telling the stories and reading good books.
I remember how many questions remained unanswered after meetings with the readers of my book, how many of them arise after creative writing courses (the next ones are already January 19), and how many stories were not told from those distant lands and territories ... So, I decided to go on an adventure: minutes, which will become someone's property in nine days - with very clear terms and conditions.
See you there January 20th, 12PM EST
What doesn't kill us, makes us stronger. I believe you have heard that many times. Before investing in my IPO read about my journey of ups and downs in life which lead me to exact place where I am standing right now.
1. From zero to hero:
I grew in a countryside and leaving it for university in a capital city I had one and the only aim - to find my spot in investment world and build a life around it. It took me 10+ years after the university, I worked here and there, mainly in financial brokerage, learning a lot, developing and offering my clients new and then non-existing services like US stock trading or investing into hedge funds - via structured notes at first, then multi-strategy, then CTAs, and so on. Three times rejected the offer to join one of the leading banks investment management and advisory team, took the forth and raised to deputy head and CIO of Private banking. Assets under management and advisory then reached 1bn in local currency, life was good, I enjoyed it a lot, made risky bets while investing myself and didn't care about the future.
From hero to zero:
At the very bottom of 2009 crisis I was asked to leave high ranked position as a bank clerk. We had some investment loses (who didn't then?), all investment management decisions were moved to headquarter overseas, leaving local divisions as translation bureaus only. I was unprepared, with few thousand on hand and bank acct and huge debts and for a day or two thought its the end of life.
2. From zero to hero:
On a 3rd day I started my own financial advisory company. Some former clients followed. Almost everybody around me then said I’m the craziest man on Earth who wants to start financial services business when market crashes like never before. However, that was a perfect timing and during the next few years I grew the new company to one of a largest in its niche with €100m+ of Institutional assets under advisory.
From hero to zero:
Our super active, innovative and even revolutionary approach was pain in the ass for regulatory authorities and they used all possible means to stop us. Finally found some (when you grow fast it's impossible not to overlook some minor issues) and revoke our licenses and almost overnight destroyed 8 figure business.
3. From zero to hero again:
It took some time to stand up again, few months to refocus, few years to rebuild my fortune and since then I’ve been managing my own financial assets portfolio only and devoting 98% of my time to philanthropy.
You never know what tomorrow will put on a table, but I can share a rich collection of pieces of advise how to survive when there is no light at the end of a tunnel, how to rebuild what was broken, how to restore what was completely damaged.

Wonder if I can become first HumanIPO that pays regular quarter dividends?
Hello, Human IPO community! I am super excited to announce that my Human IPO is launching today!
I 'm as investment ( weird to say that haha) will create most value for those who:
*Starting to build Investment portfolios and not sure how to start.
*Wants to avoid "newbie "mistakes which might hurt investment results.
*Want to have their investment portfolios at better efficiency rate.
Tough 130 USD/H might look above average, but even a single advise might save up to ~ 300 USD when forming a 10k-15k portfolio. And you keep this lesson for all your life.
What does it mean to be yourself in the workplace?
