Success in the marketplace provides the platform for Andrei’s philanthropic initiatives. He views success in the marketplace not as an end in itself but as a means to changing the world for the better. A higher purpose in business positively impacts not just processes, products, and profits but also people. Andrei and his partners support several orphanages in Bucharest, Romania and a prison ministry microfinance program in Austin, Texas.
