About Trademark Factory® MEET THE TEAM

Andrei Mincov Founder & CEO

Andrei Mincov

Founder & CEO

Whether helping his father enforce his copyright or helping you secure your trademarks, Andrei's passion is driven by the fundamental belief that those who create something that hasn't existed before deserve to not have it stolen from them. Business owners deserve not to be ripped off by unscrupulous copycats, pretentious lawyers who only care about covering their asses, or fake-cheap online trademarking services that file your trademark applications for next-to-nothing then leave you out in the cold if something goes wrong.

For Andrei, Trademark Factory® is not just an exciting business opportunity. It's personal.

10 coolest things about Andrei in his own words:
  • I was 21 years old when I first got to be in a courtroom as a lawyer—virtually self-taught—representing my father, a famous Russian composer Mark Minkov, who caught a radio station stealing his music.
  • My wife moved in to live with me after we’d known each other for an hour and a half. I told her I’d propose after she gets pregnant with our first kid. We now have three amazing children: Masha, Patricia, and David.
  • I coded the first version of Trademark Factory website myself — and it worked!
  • I was singing on stage with my father since I was 5 years old.
  • I wrote 7 books on intellectual property, of which one is an international bestseller. I explain law so that a 9-year-old can understand.
  • I moved to Canada in 2007 to start everything from scratch after being a successful lawyer in Russia, to seek a new challenge—expecting it to be a place that respects intellectual property, freedom, and entrepreneurship. 15 years later, I officially started the nomad capitalist chapter of my life as I moved out of Canada toward Dubai (with several other countries in between).
  • I write music and play the drums. In fact, I first visited the U.S. in 1989 because I wrote a song that was shown on national TV in Soviet Russia.
  • I dreamed up, designed, engineered, and had made for me a one-of-a-kind DrumDesk™. Now I can type emails and do double-bass paradiddles at the same time! If you find it hard to imagine what a DrumDesk™ is, check out this video!
  • I used to record and mix music for my father. You could hear my recordings on CDs, in theaters, and on TV.
  • I was an intellectual property lawyer in 2 countries for 20 years before I voluntarily gave up my lawyer license to offer guaranteed, all-inclusive flat-fee trademarking services to clients worldwide.

Ezekiel Montero Head of Sales Training

Ezekiel Montero

Head of Sales Training

Ezekiel is passionate about achieving his goals, and one of them is being able to help others achieve theirs. He didn't know a lot about trademarks when he joined the team but quickly learned that he would be playing a role that would greatly impact the lives of other go-getters such as himself.

Before joining the team, he worked in learning solutions as a Sales Trainer and Communications Coach for various programs. He is there to train and support our existing closers and in 2023 Zeke became our Head of Sales Training.

10 coolest things about Ezekiel in his own words:
  • I started my career in IT and data analytics, up until the company I worked for said they were going to let go of the role and outsource. With no other vacant position, they asked me "why don't you try selling something over the phone?" - and that's how I got into sales. Never looked back since.
  • Covid-19 made me re-evaluate the truly important things in life. Thus, I've decided to leave the company I belonged to for years because they wouldn't accommodate flexible working arrangements. Now that I'm working from home, I can finally say I've taken many steps closer to true work-life balance as I can spend more time with my family.
  • I met the love of my life in a random encounter on an online game! She was playing with 3 of her friends and out of the hundreds of thousands playing at that time, the game chose me to be the last member of their team! What were the odds? We're now married and have 2 beautiful children - who like to play video games too!
  • Despite not having any formal training, writing is my guilty pleasure. I've either won or have at least gotten special mentions on most of the small competitions I've joined. My favorite genre to write about is fantasy.
  • My wife likes to cosplay and she eventually convinced me to join her for a few cosplay events. Seeing people appreciate you being in costume and posing for pictures was fun for the most part - until I lost a new pair of sneakers because I accidentally left them in a public bathroom while I was changing into my outfit.
  • I find pleasure, and fulfillment in learning new things and being an expert in them.
  • Despite not having watched TV for well over a decade, I had a 30% close rate selling TV subscriptions to prospects who didn't want them anymore!
  • I am the only one in my immediate family that can't swim, and as weird as it sounds, I'm proud of it! Asking my wife to pull me back ashore after drifting away on floaters is one of my simple joys.
  • My perfect day would start with coffee and end with coffee.
  • I was an introvert most of my life until I discovered that I actually LOVED talking with great people and learning about their stories. I'm excited to hear yours too!

  • I am an avid fan of Supernatural; I am a Dean kinda girl.
  • I am a beach person at heart, but never take me to mountains because bugs scare the soul out of me.
  • I traveled a lot when I was younger, but spent the majority of my life in the Middle East, namely Qatar and Saudi. Spent months in the USA (Boston, New York, Orlando, Springfield, Maryland, etc.)
  • Despite spending 11 years in Doha, Qatar, I don’t know how to speak Arabic.
  • Ironically, despite being deathly afraid of bugs (cockroaches to be precise), I love plants!
  • I have both the blessing and the curse of an eternal baby face— you will never be able to tell my age. It’s my favorite bar game!
  • I’m lactose intolerant, but that doesn’t change my love for New York cheesecakes and pizza. I just have to be a few steps away from the toilet.
