Client Success Story: Venture Capital Investors Trip to Moscow

This event had brought a delegation of managing partners from leading Silicon Valley venture capital firms to Moscow to meet with Russian business and government elite, including President Medvedev, and to further ties between Silicon Valley and Russian high-tech community. During their stay in Moscow, the trip’s participants were introduced to the Russian President Dmitry Medvedev, prominent Russian entrepreneurs, major law firms, investment banks, and other technology executives and investors. In addition, the participants were given a behind-the-scenes look at several Russian technology companies as well as the opportunity to learn about the emerging Russian startup scene and its growth potential. Productive meetings with Russian business, academic and political elites have opened up new opportunities, served as a platform for establishing business relationships and led to a series of successful investment projects.

"On my own behalf and on behalf of RUSNANO, I want to express my gratitude for the efforts that you and your colleagues have undertaken to organize a trip of venture investors to Russia. I think that the main result of the meetings and the exchange of opinions is that such a trip would be a good starting point for strategic cooperation between our countries"
