- May 2013 launch of MidLincoln by Ovanes Oganisian. The name choice MidLincoln was inspired by the rural settings around Goryshkino village located west of Moscow which looked as empty, windy and free as Lincoln Nebraska. The idea was to launch an investment research business which is not run by smartly dressed analysts, but by village folks. The folks could be from any of the village or a small town around the world: i.e. Odintsovo near Moscow from Lincoln in Nebraska, Nyahururu Kenya , Boston in Lincolnshire or Zestafoni in Svanetia Georgia.

- November 2013 - MidLincoln was put on a tech footing after installation of research sql server and started heavily investing into artificial intelligence tools and bigdata (in a sense of gather lots of data). The primary aim of artificial intelligence tools was to maintain ascetic cost structure of the business.
- By February 2014 two important new services were launched: ML Datamine - which served as a foundation for a launch of ML GEMs - quantitative portfolio of long/short country ideas. Quantitative products came naturally as extension of the methodology developed by heavy use of artificial intelegence and lots of data crunching, but quant was not the only focus. Rather it was a legacy of tools employed.
At that time Midlincoln expands coverage and focuses on BRICS plus Turkey and South Korea.
