International think-tank Horasis announced this week the newest member of its Advisory Board, venture capitalist Semyon Dukach. The addition of the investor will strengthen the organization’s presence in the entrepreneurial and innovation community.

Semyon Dukach is an investor and the founding partner of One Way Ventures, which is a fund founded in 2017 to support immigrant founders. According to the VC, the same determination and grit that motivates certain individuals to migrate makes them more likely to have success when tackling the challenges that come alongside building new companies.

Semyon’s family moved to the US when he was a child, and he went on to study at Columbia University before completing his masters degree at MIT. 

He later was the Director of the Techstars accelerator in Boston.

Said Horasis Chairman Frank-Jürgen Richter, “By sharing the collective experience of its network of advisors and supporters, One Way Ventures helps to democratize access to funding and increase opportunities for talented individuals. The venture fund believes technology must be a force for good, and that all individuals should be given the chance to succeed.”

Founded and chaired by Dr. Frank-Jürgen Richter, Horasis is one of the world’s leading independent, international think tank headquartered in Zurich, Switzerland.

The think-tank strives to uncover solutions that support sustainable development and expects its partners to demonstrate principled leadership that helps to deliver community-driven initiatives.
