U.S. start-ups may get support if interested in Russian market

29 Aug '18
American start-ups may expect ample support if they seek opportunities in the Russian market. Earlier this year FortRoss Ventures, an international VC fund of Russian origin, pledged $200m to back such start-up teams.

A new fund the VCs closed this year focuses on fintech start-ups and also ones that develop solutions in the field of artificial intelligence, cyber security and e-commerce.

The venture capitalists will not only invest in start-ups but also offer consulting services to help international companies better adapt to Russian business and general culture and to the intricacies of Russias political and financial reality.

FortRoss Ventures Partner Anurag Chandra said this past spring that the potential for U.S. start-ups in Russia is incredible.

In November 2017, FortRoss Ventures pooled efforts with Sberbank, the national savings bank in Russia, and the government-owned Internet Initiatives Development Fund (IIDF, aka FRII) in their joint Global Pitch platform program aimed at helping Russian start-ups get a foothold in the global markets.
