On December 13, TechCrunch Europe is coming to Moscow, Russia, for “TechCrunch Moscow”. The original post from TechCrunch Europe here. A summary/recap of the post below.
The event will be held at the first Russian private tech incubator, the Digital October Center, located in a historical manufacturing building Krasny Oktyabr (pictured). For those of you unfamiliar with this (I know there may be one or two of you), this actually translates as “Red October” (or Красный Октябрь in Russian). Our event will be part of the official launch of the building, which hopes to become Moscow’s leading digital / media / technology hub.
TechCrunch Moscow is about supporting the startup and venture capital eco-system in Moscow and Russia. It’s also about uncovering the trends and the hottest companies and startups in the market right now. If you are in Europe for Le Web and want to spend a few productive days in Moscow, TechCrunch Moscow is your chance to check out the scene there.
Co-organized by us together with Kite Ventures, the conference will focus on the key issues regarding tech entrepreneurship in Russia, including:
• Opening the Russian market to multinational companies and competition
• Developing tech entrepreneurship community in Russia as an aid towards modernising and diversifying the economy
• Russian Going Global: What can Russia do to internationalise its tech entrepreneurship and to be more competitive in the global market
