RUSNANO Delegation Departs for Silicon Valley and New Projects

Moscow, Russia | Posted on March 21st, 2011

Dmitry Akhanov, director of the US representative office of RUSNANO, will speak to the symposium on opportunities for cooperation with potential project applicants and co-investors from US and Canada that arise from opening the local office. Richard Archuleta, CEO of Plastic Logic, and Alexey Kovsh, first vice president of the Optogan Group, will discuss their project companies established through co-investment with RUSNANO and the practices of implementing high-tech projects in Russia.

The Global Technology Symposium is a leading investment conference on venture capital, technology, and entrepreneurship in emerging markets. Each year, the Symposium brings more than 300 selected opinion leaders in business, finance, technology, and policymaking to Silicon Valley, where they share insights into the opportunities and challenges of globalization.

This year's Symposium features legends from the world of venture investment, including Tim Draper, Dixon Doll, Pitch Johnson, Dick Kramlich, and Vish Mishra, as well as senior executives from Cisco, IBM, and Microsoft. Attendees will hear from Russian venture capital investors who have achieved success in the West, such as Alexander Galitsky and Evgeny Zaytsev.

GTS will kick off with "Russia Day," which will highlight high-tech startups and opportunities of investors from Russia. Senior executives from Russian institutes for development—Russian Venture Company, Skolkovo Foundation, and VTB Capital—will also attend.

"Silicon Valley has always been at the center of RUSNANO's attention: as a source of technological innovation and for its evolution with the help of smart money," noted Dmitry Akhanov. "I have every confidence that the opening of the RUSNANO office in North America this year will make our cooperation closer and even more rewarding."
