Highlights

The creation of an ombudsman position [for the protection of entrepreneurs' rights] and establishment of the Agency for Strategic Initiatives, which appeared not long ago for the purposes of supporting business, shows the Russian President’s attention to the problems businesses face. Most importantly, it is a sign that the authorities have started paying closer attention to the problems of business.

Artem Avetisyan
Director of the New Business Stream, Agency for Strategic Initiatives

In Russia, an entrepreneur is a person who is constantly protecting their resources, despite the abundance of natural resources in the country in which they reside.

Kirill Androsov
Managing Partner, Altera Capital

Many of the most successful entrepreneurs I ever meet around the world from any country, they fail the first time, they pick themselves up, dust themselves off, and they do it again, and again and again. And this is precisely what characterizes entrepreneurs.

James Turley
Chairman, Chief Executive Officer, Ernst & Young Global

Business is still a man’s game, although that situation is changing and the share of working women in the world, and in Russia, is growing considerably.

Ekaterina Trofimova
First Vice-President, Gazprombank

Open style of management and transparency that what is usually missing in many of BRICS countries. If you want to have the trust of the investors, if you want to have the trust of your employees, your customers, in that openness and transparence are the key.

Kamran Elahian
Chairman and Co-founder, Global Catalyst Partners
