A Start-Up Takes Off: Business Angels and Venture Investments
If we look at, say, the experience of our Chinese colleagues, […] do you know how many technoparks there are? Up to a thousand. Can you imagine? Clearly, it’s a big country with a larger population, and each year we work closer and closer with our Chinese colleagues. We are seeing certain infrastructure projects being created all the time because the number of companies is growing. At one point at Skolkovo, we were happy with every tenth company that came to us and became a resident. Today, 500–600 companies a year become residents in our country

A Start-Up Takes Off: Business Angels and Venture Investments
Any infrastructure that is created in the interests of a start-up, be it a technopark, a business incubator, or now a platform for university entrepreneurship, [such as] Skolkovo, of course, as a federal institution, is always a zero-sum game [...] Today, a system that is built at the federal level, and at the regional level, all works quite synchronously for itself

A Start-Up Takes Off: Business Angels and Venture Investments
It always sounds strange, we’ve been saying this all these years, and our colleagues know that, in principle, there is much more money than smart projects that you want to give it to [...] On the one hand, there are a lot of startups and they say, ‘We can’t find any money’. On the other hand, investors […] In this regard, there is an abundance of work, and there are great opportunities

How to Bring Russian Start-Ups to Asian Markets?
Today, there are over 3,300 resident companies in Skolkovo, including 500 engaged in foreign economic activities with foreign currency revenues. If we look back to what the structure of this revenue was, say, 3–5 years ago and what countries the revenue came from, obviously, 70–80% of this revenue came from Europe and North America. Over the last five years, the situation has changed dramatically, quite the contrary... Today, the Asia Pacific region and, by the way the Middle East and Africa represent very promising markets

The Next Generation of Entrepreneurs
The Far East offers a number of features due to its proximity to the Asia-Pacific region, and in my view, we – as Skolkovo – and other development institutions have yet to unlock this potential

The Next Generation of Entrepreneurs
The key to the development of the Far East lies in part not so much in supporting what’s already there, but in creating something new. That’s because without this new element, there will be no nutritional basis for subsequent development. <...> The incubation period for supporting tech entrepreneurship and youth entrepreneurship in the Far East has passed. Successful case studies exist to aspire towards. <...> The atmosphere of trusting these kinds of initiatives has improved substantially

The Next Generation of Entrepreneurs
As a matter of fact, no entrepreneurship – be it youth entrepreneurship or adult entrepreneurship – can survive without consolidation, without managing a flow of interests on a systemic basis
