According to Anatoly Chubais, it was the first time when we brought Russia's innovation economy in Silicon Valley.
Russian and American start-up entrepreneurs, venture investors and CEOs met at Russian Innovation Week conference to establish strategic partnerships to explore investment opportunities and demonstrate technological innovations.
I hope that this conference will stimulate the creation of new partnerships between U.S. and Russian companies, and allow entrepreneurs in technological businesses to take advantage of investment from abroad - Dmitry Akhanov said, the president and CEO of RUSNANO USA, Inc. which is a subsidiary of Russia's JSC RUSNANO. - RUSNANO has invested $1.2B over the past three years in 18 projects created jointly with U.S. companies, and we are actively looking for new opportunities to expand this cooperation in the future.
According to Anatoly Chubais, the result of previous visits of Russian venture investors and representatives of development institutions was not just talks and discussions, but real business.
