He complained about bad roads, until he decided to fix them himself. We continue with our “Close East” project, where we tell you about Donbas businessmen and activists.

Today’s story is about Vadym Lyubchenko whose way from management to road construction started from a chemical experiment in his kitchen.

Surprisingly even for himself, he decided to take action. Instead of complaining about the quality of the roads in his native Severodonetsk, Vadym decided to try fixing them himself. He stumbled upon a business idea while walking down the street.

He went from demand to supply through experiments in his own kitchen.

Over a year, he read and watched tons of information about asphalt repairs. Then he applied for a grant. International organizations supported the idea.
