Russia House in Davos 2019
Russia: DNA of the New Entrepreneur

In this situation the government helps us in the IT sector, because the existing tax system really benefits development of IT in Russia

Entrepreneurship is frequently associated with business. I believe that entrepreneurship is much broader than just business in terms of its span or outreach. Business is earning money. The Russian word for entrepreneurship derives from ‘enterprise’. Entrepreneurship is sometimes not about earning money. It can be social entrepreneurship, when people open museums with their own money. It’s entrepreneurship as well. People do it for a reason

It’s a war of ideologies. It is what it is. It’s just wars can be different. It’s just we are used to saying thata war is when somebody gets killed. What about economic warfare? Isn’t it a war? What about a war of ideologies? Isn’t it a war

The quality starts with the entrepreneur’s DNA. Success starts when you find something new, something vacant. […] An entrepreneur can find those niches that sort of wind up the economy by adding value. Best cases are the ones with vacant niches

We’ve created a 5.0 generation travel management company. And I can already see what generation 6.0 will be like. We need our technology to reach the stage when we are certified in cyber security for that enormous array of information we work in. We keep looking what is next, where we are going, what we can offer and what is new

Let’s take Continent Express[that was created 22 years ago]. Why is it a great example of blue ocean? I brought corporate travel management to Russia, which was a completely new industry. It didn’t exist here before. We created jobs, came up with a model and naturally took a global best practice – mainly the English or the West European model. We customized it to fit the Russian reality and created the first Russian version. Now this industry in Russia has dozens of thousands of jobs. It’s white collars – well-paid employees, which means our high taxes don’t just go to Moscow and St. Petersburg, but other regions as well.That’s the benefit, the value that we bring. Through our work we optimize corporate governance and travel budgets in largest corporations, as well as their business processes. Years of our performance saved dozens of millions of dollars for a number of corporations. This money was channelled towards other investment with higher efficiency

Nobody can ever beat it, it’s the soft power, it’s people’s diplomacy, it needs to continue. We need to fill the void that emerged on the international level
