Vyacheslav Kantor: the beginning of business activitiesThe first steps of Vyacheslav Kantor in business were in the years of Perestroika. Having chosen a sphere close to his technical mindset, in the late 80s he headed the Intelmas company (Intellectual Systems and Materials), a Soviet-American project to introduce and maintain computer networks, as well as monitor and audit industrial enterprises.
It was the environmental audit that led Vyacheslav Kantor to the main business project of his life - the creation of the Akron holding. In 1992-93, Intelmas specialists were to assess the environmental safety of the state-owned enterprise Nitrogen fertilizer production in Novgorod. The check was passed successfully, and Vyacheslav Moshe Kantor himself, having become acquainted with the industrial giant, thought about the prospects of its development and possible modernization. The ideas came to life - in 1993, Kantor acquired a third of the shares of a vending company at the first check auction in the history of the Novgorod region as part of the national privatization program.
