A Start-Up Takes Off: Business Angels and Venture Investments
I think that Southeast Asia is one of the most attractive regions in the world today for any business. Not only for IT and innovation, but for IT and innovation too […] The region is home to 680 million people, and 480 million of them are already connected to high-speed Internet. And the most interesting thing is that 380 million are physical consumers via Internet communication channels. That means they regularly spend money online, and this is truly an amazing market for the companies that come to this region [...] If you are ready to work long enough and hard enough in this market, and any export is an investment, then you can have success here

A Start-Up Takes Off: Business Angels and Venture Investments
On the one hand, we are seeing a still rather unstable situation with the financial and investment market around the world, and this also affects Singapore and Southeast Asia. Funds are afraid to periodically look at new companies, yet, at the same time, the latest statistics show that in 2022 venture capital funds that are focused on Southeast Asia and India have raised USD 3.1 billion in new funding alone, i.e., this is new money that has come into the industry. This is comparable with all the money that the same funds have raised last year for the whole year

How to Bring Russian Start-Ups to Asian Markets?
Even at the product design stage, a team needs understand what its target markets will be... If we say that you want to make your product initially for the Southeast Asian, Latin American, and Middle Eastern markets, you need to be in that market and to be as close to your consumer as possible. In Singapore’s accelerators today, there are quite a few teams from Russia that make products for Southeast Asia and generally do it quite successfully

How to Bring Russian Start-Ups to Asian Markets?
I have been saying this all year long at all platforms: let’s look at Southeast Asia as a separate target region for Russian companies. Today, Southeast Asia ... is the fourth biggest economy in the world. And it is one of the few economies in the world that grew even during the pandemic: some countries grew in double digits. And our presence there was, unfortunately, insufficient. I am glad that now we are looking at this region more and more. It is region which, on the one hand, is very interconnected. On the other hand, it is still quite different: countries are different from each other, with different cultures, different economic situations, and different business aspects, but it is possible to work with them together

How to Bring Russian Start-Ups to Asian Markets?
A few figures about Southeast Asia, apart from the fact that it is the fourth economy in the world today. It is, among other things, one of the fastest-growing regions for IT start-ups and technology companies in general. Last year, venture capital investment in Southeast Asia was greater than China, Japan and Korea combined – that is more than USD 20 billion invested in local start-ups. This year the trend is the same: in the first five months of this year, more than 400 companies in this region have received venture capital investment – that is quite a lot both in volume and in number of companies

SME Digitalization: Digital Development and Digital Inequality
The focus should probably be on microbusinesses and the self-employed: this is the most unprotected area of entrepreneurial activity. They really do not have any money today. They live between cash gaps on a daily basis. And allocating even a small amount of money to implement IT tools is critical for them

Secondly, training and support programmes are frequently run by non-profit organizations. I believe it could be an interesting idea for our country. We have OPORA RUSSIA, as well as other business associations that could take this function upon themselves
