The practice of investing in Russia is often held in a "quiet" and "closed" mode, when the investor and the project team do not particularly advertise their relationship. The amount of investment in startups in Russia per dollar of GDP is 20 times less than in Israel, 14 times less than in the United States. All this is the evidence of a weak venture ecosystem. Experts can call only 5−10% of the total number of Russian startups successful. In addition to finding funding, the acute problem for a startup in Russia is getting "access to the body" of top managers of large companies, IT officials, digital experts and other people who can help a startup grow and become a platform for it to test an idea or replicate it.

YOU ARE THE PROJECT STARTUP REPRESENTATIVE
If you want to get a mentorship or find an investor/partner
WHAT DO WE OFFER STARTUPS?
Search for a major customer/investor and launch a joint pilot
If your project is in a pilot phase, and you need a major partner or means for piloting, we can recommend the project to partners of our Investment Club and find an investment package for the realization of the pilot. Large companies of our
Investment Club can become your first clients, partners or investors. We give you the opportunity to be engaged in the project — focus on what you do best, providing you with investment and access to our network of partners.
Meetups platform for startups and entrepreneurs looking for investment, partnership and mentorship
Often the teams absorbed by their idea forget to evaluate competitors, stakeholders, or form a different point of view to the project. Our online/offline meetups will help you look at your project differently, communication with other teams and expert community representatives will help to evaluate your project in a new way and perhaps provide the impetus for new ideas and collaborations.
Mentorship
If you have a lack of experience and knowledge, our experienced experts will help and share their skills in solving complex issues. The most promising teams will be invited to our biannual Investment Club meetings in a closed circle of the professional community.
Promotion of startups abroad
Our Club includes foreign partners in the digital industry, including venture funds. We will provide proactive support and access to a wide international network, help to develop a strategy to enter foreign markets, provide legal advice and expert assessment of the project in this area.
Assistance in communication with major development funds and institutions
Large foundations and development institutes have no problem finding projects/startups. These investors often are well-known and therefore they see a high flow of startups that want to get investment. Among other things, large funds are willing to invest in projects aimed at expansion in global markets, and sometimes put forward excessive selection requirements.
Some of these funds are already members of our Club, while others are in the process of joining. This is why we will be able to establish communication between you. The most successful teams will be invited to biannual fundraising meetings, in a closed circle of the professional community.
Strategic advice and assistance in finding investors
Based on the Investment Club and our partners, we support selected startups by actively engaging them at all stages of the investment process.
