45-year-old Andrey Andreev, born in Moscow, now residing in London, is an entrepreneur known for several internet websites and apps that you may be familiar with. His services tend to have a positive impact on people socially by connecting them to each other over the internet in unique and healthy ways. He is also passionate about film and animation design as evident by his latest project.
In the mid to late 90s Andrey formed his first businesses: Virus and Spylog. Virus was an online store for computers and related accessories formed in 1995 while Spylog – formed in 1999 – was a business which helped track user habits and site visitation. In the early 2000s Andrey Andreev continued on with new ideas. Begun was an ad firm formed in 2002, similar to Google AdWords. Following Begun, Andrey went onto a few different social and dating focused services: Mama, in 2005, Russia’s most popular dating site; Badoo in 2006, which is now considered the world’s largest social network; and Bumble, a service built with the help of Whitney Wolfe, who previously co-founded Tinder. Bumble is a dating service which empowers women by giving them space and time to make the first move, approaching men with the first message.
Andrey’s latest project is Dress Code, a unique boutique production studio based in New York. Dress code is co-founded by Andrey Andreev and Dan Covert who he met while in Graphic Design School. Dress Code employs a unique, design-focused approach to film and animation with a curated roster of directors, striving for diverse content. Dress Code has proven itself with several festival awards and acknowledgments, surely with more to come.
Given Andrey Andreev’s past and current line of work in the arts and internet social circles it will be interesting to see what he chooses to do next!
