Founded in Iceland in the mid 90ies, Eskimo sparked out in 1998 to search more "dottirs" in Russia's Wild East: Siberia. Our main office in Tomsk is overlooking scouting activities in Omsk, Novosibirsk, Barnaul, Ufa, Moscow and all Russia. We focus on primary scouting at schools, and have gained a reputation for being - yes - very selective, but developing and launching in turn new talent quickly and at the highest level.
In early 2001, we opened doors in Slovakia. We consider this step as the move towards true internationalization of our business and as the bridgehead for further expansion in Central Europe. From Kosice our van Alice systematically travels the country to make sure that we don't miss any unpolished diamond not even in the most remote.
Also in 2001, we touched the shores of Rio de Janeiro … and settled. We eventually moved further South to Florianopolis with the intention to be closer to the fertile scouting grounds in Rio Grande do Sul, Santa Caterina and Parana.
In September 2002 we made a strategic investment in Bohemia Model Management, a well-established agency in Prague. Since then we extended our geographical reach to Germany, France, Italy, Poland, Belarus and the Ukraine where were we try to see potential first and eventually manage its career.
