Shortly before the release of the final issue of “Delo”, another landmark publication on SkyWay Technologies Co. appeared in the Belarusian media space. “Zhenskiy Zhurnal” (“Women’s journal”) has made a big interview (in Russian) with the General Director of the project designing organization Nadezhda Kosareva. “How is it possible to turn a tank firing range into a test center and to manage hundreds of engineers, without losing the charm?” ― this was the main subject of conversation formulated by the editorial board. Nadezhda Kosareva answered questions related to the management of the Company staff, selection of specialists for responsible positions, the legal side of the work, logistics and much more. Personal aspects were also mentioned: a move from Moscow to Minsk, the relationship with the family.
In addition to the fact that Nadezhda is the General Director of SkyWay Technologies Co., she is also among the investors in SkyWay project, who made a most significant contribution to its implementation. She is the General designer’s like-minded person and spouse. In early 2000s, when Yunitskiy’s strategic partners stopped financing the work of the design Bureau and the test site in Ozyory, Nadezhda sold the estate that belonged to her (hotel business objects) in the Crimea. She invested the funds received from the transaction in maintaining the design Bureau that made it possible to continue research and development of design documentation for the string transport technology at that moment crucial for the technology.
