Spotlight on nanotechnology investment

Abstract:
At the 3rd International Nanotechnology Forum, Business RT spoke with Andrey Sharonov, Managing Director at Troika Dialog, about promoting investment into Russian science.

RT: What role is Troika Dialog playing in the nanotechnology and high technology sector?

AS: "First of all Troika Dialog is also a management company for venture funds and currently we are running four venture funds, and one of them is, together with Rusnano and the Business School Skolkovo, established three years ago, in Moscow. It is 2 billion roubles investment fund, venture capital fund, when Rusnano has invested 1 billion roubles - about $30 million - and the same amount was invested by Business School Skolkovo in this fund. And the investment declaration is dedicated to the particular nanotechnology, and our mission is to find such interesting start ups, future portfolio companies, and invest in them. Go through the process of growing these companies, and then to find an exit strategy for all these companies, as usual."
