Value proposition for enterpreneurs

BEYOND JUST MONEY
We offer our portfolio companies assistance with defining the course of future financings, shaping public communications, geographic expansion of the business, introductions to key trading and technology partners, hiring personnel, board members and relevant advisors and defining and refining the company's strategy.
TEAM COMMITMENT AND REPUTATION
Our team is highly motivated and committed to investing in Russia's young technology companies and creating long term partnerships with serial technology entrepreneurs. We are also proud of our team's reputation for dedication, integrity and high standards.
FOCUS AND INVOLVEMENT
We are solely focused on investing in the equity of young technology companies in Russia. We seek investments with unique value propositions. We generally seek a representation on the board of the companies we invest in, as we believe we can make a valuable contribution in the strategic decision making process.
RELATIONSHIP NETWORK
Over many years our team members have built and cultivated long-standing relationships with Russia's leading internet and technology companies. These relationships are a source of competitive advantage for our portfolio companies, as they enable mutually beneficial sharing of information and best practices (to the extent permitted for competitive reasons), advice on many operational aspects of the business, and we also assist our portfolio companies willing to work together.
INDUSTRY AND PRODUCT EXPERTISE
Our team has deep technology understanding and experience. Our team members have helped many successful Russian companies that have completed landmark IPOs, private placements and trade sales.
SPIRIT OF PARTNERSHIP
We believe in partnering with the entrepreneurs we back and in bringing to bear all of our collective resources and relationships in helping them build their companies.
