Cortex. The Anti-Consulting Company

We deliver innovative ventures.

We build technological SPVs for joint ventures, entrepreneurs, and professionals successful in conventional industries to materialize their vision into businesses that lead the transformation and steer the new economy.

We let founders skip the steps, protect them against re-inventing the wheel, cover them from the routine, allowing them to focus on innovation, customer development, and investor relationships.

We practice technology investment when impressive ideas get basic technology, consulting, and payment infrastructure at a symbolic cost.

Anti-Consulting Services

The way to get ahead is to get started. However, it's overwhelming to step down from the corporate level or step up from sole practice. The founder or founders need to become experts in everything simultaneously. We create an innovative company as a moving vehicle ready for jumping in. We put the founder into the established environment by implementing conventional software startup practices from day 0.

Case Studies

  • Professional service startups
  • Social media or communicational startups
  • Marketplaces, e-commerce, and electronic trading startups
  • Software technology startups
Cortex. Business

We eliminate the miscoordination and counter-party risk when a tailored R&D business unit requires many consultants and service providers. We bring technologies, procedures, and approaches effective for purpose-driven small businesses.

Case Studies

  • Modern spin-offs of developed institutional players and global companies
  • In-house software development units
  • Experimental technology SPVs, corporate startups
  • Technology transfer projects
  • Ecosystems

Clients Say

TM2. An issuing and trading blockchain platform

Working with Cortex Technology has been rewarding. They beat out 35 other teams around the world to develop this project. And it showed why from day one. Their great communication and ability to see deep into not just the technology itself, but the problems we were solving and how to solve them was a huge factor in our success.

Petur Georgesson. Managing Director – TM2

Fresh Scanner. An artificial intelligence platform for automating of quality control and categorization for fruits and vegetables

Cortex – a great start for the implementation of digital products for people who know the scope of this product, but do not have knowledge in the field of technical implementation The cortex approach allows you to quickly start and bring the idea to a practical test. In the development of the Cortex project, it is necessary to prepare more standard product offers and establish access to a wide range of investors who are ready to join in the development of projects at different stages of product development.

Evgeniy Nekrasov – Founder of Fresh Scanner

Aura. Complex casino security surveillance system provider

On one of the projects I faced the task of automating the situational centre for the casino security department. None of the existing companies on the market at that time could offer me good conditions for the price and timing, however, the budget was sufficient to be able to perform custom development. Specialized projects of this level are good niche products that can be replicated and scaled. Suddenly, I had an idea to make a company out of this with a product that could make a profit later and increase my professional competences in the eyes of my partners.
I asked Cortex Technology to create a company, design a product, and implement it for further development. I did not know until the end of what we will get, but I was confident in the good result, as Sergey always delivers, and it happened. I didn't have time to invest in such startup, but I had the opportunity to create a product. Cortex team did everything on a turnkey basis with minimal involvement from my side.
