Celebrate 15th Anniversary with Us!


We are turning 15 in December. This is the story of how our company evolved into what it is today, and how we plan to celebrate.

Pilot Group Ltd was founded in 2000 by Yanar Evdokimov and his friends, the ‘co-pilots’. The company’s business was general web development. Internet was only starting to infiltrate our lives, and a lot of companies did not have corporate websites or any online representation whatsoever. Pilot Group was doing different custom projects.

PG Real Estate script was built in about 2005. The product found his niche so we employed sales and support managers, designers, testers and other specialists to support and develop the project.

Over 10 years, PG Real Estate changed the platform, several designs, we released several dozen releases, built Marketplace for PG Real Estate modules, add-ons and services and developed mobile applications for iOS and Android.


Today PG Real estate – is a full-featured solution for real estate professionals and entrepreneurs. Our customers can choose between a free open code and enhance it with modules and add-ons from our Marketplace and ready packages. The same marketplace allows everyone to post and sell add-ons, design themes, and offer their services for our products.

We constantly working on PG Real estate to improve and adapt it to the modern reality. Quite recently we have announced new hosted solution, so that our customers can start their online real estate business as easy as pie. In our near-term plans we have CRM integration and responsive design.

As we approach the big date, we would like to share the anticipation with you. Every new customer who purchases a license of PG Real Estate until December 25 will receive a special gift from us.

As our first step, we have lowered the prices for mobile applications.

Fear Stops Potential Entrepreneurs Launching Businesses

Overcome Your Fear (2)

Recently, published a research of Dr Philipp K Berger on how is it that this debilitating fear affects potential entrepreneurs?

It’s something that researcher Dr Philipp K Berger knows all about, back in 2010 he toyed with the idea of starting his own business but found himself worrying about taking the leap.

“Even though starting a company was completely my dream, I found myself confronted with a lot of irrational fear that I really could not explain,” he tells the Wall Street Journal. “Even if the company failed I was sure I would get another good job afterwards so objectively there was no reason to fear.”

Eventually he launched the business – a sushi restaurant chain with automated production – and at the same time explored the relationship between fear and entrepreneurship in his PhD thesis.

“People are less fearful if they have leadership experience and an intrinsic motivation to start a company,” he says. “The sex of the entrepreneur also matters. Females tend to be more fearful about founding a company, even though they have the same success chances once they actually do. A lot of the entrepreneurship potential of women is untapped.”

Unsurprisingly, his research also found that people who had a high self-estimation of their abilities also had lower fear – and thus a higher chance of actually doing something with their ideas and founding companies. However, he does point out that this has nothing to do with actual competency, so there’s a chance that these entrepreneurs aren’t the most competent to be running businesses, they just think that they are.

How can entrepreneurs cope with that fear and manage to found a company anyway?

The key, he says, is in being aware of it. “With a lot of psychological problems, if you’re aware of that, that’s one big step to getting along with it. You want people that are aware of fear and the pitfalls so they can work to avoid them, but you don’t want so much fear that it prevents them from founding.”

So how did Dr Berger go from being frozen by fear of failure to launching a successful start-up? And how can other entrepreneurs overcome their fear?

“The [step] I took was dividing the big step of founding a company into multiple smaller steps,” he explains.

“That could be, you stay in full-time employment but register a company, then you look for an investor but stay in your company, and then you have talks and get busier so you go down to part-time at your job and maybe consider a sabbatical. The more you divide the big decision of founding a company into small steps, the less fear you will have.”
