Maxim Razmakhin has always been an entrepreneurial spirit. When he was in college, he sold milkshakes out of his dorm room.
"It was sort of like a substitute for coffee," Razmakhin said. "It stimulated brain power and helped people cram for those big exams."
He ended up making a couple thousand bucks from the endeavor.
The Russian-native is the co-founder of Thirstie, an online alcohol-delivery service. He was recently named to the Forbes' 30 under 30 food & drink list for his innovation in the over $250 billion alcohol industry.
Razmakhin got his start working as an equity analyst after college. He then moved to New York in 2011 to work for Haver Analytics as an economic database manager. But his entrepreneurial aspirations did not abate during his time in the corporate world. He was brainstorming ideas with the company's CEO Devaraj Southworth while he was working in New York.
"And then it hit us one day," he said. "We realized alcohol was the space to get in to, because there was no technology there."
But not too long after starting, Razmakhin said the on-demand alcohol-delivery business exploded.
"At one point we had like 30 plus competitors," he said.
He told Business Insider that successful entrepreneurs do everything they can to make their product stand out. In order to differentiate Thirstie from the other alcohol-delivery services, Razmakhin said he and Southworth added content to their site.
"Today we aren't just a place where you can purchase alcohol," he said. "We are here to help users discover and learn new things about alcohol and broaden their horizons."
