The Startup of Russia
Tom Nastas has started writing an epic series of blog posts about the Russian startup community on his blog Scaling Up Innovation.
He currently has three posts up.
– INTRODUCTION: THE STARTUP OF START-UP COMMUNITIES; THE POWER OF CLONES IN RUSSIA—& BEYOND
– Part I: The Start-up of Russia. The Startup of Start-up Communities: The Power of Clones in Russia—& Beyond
– Part II: The Cultures of Risk—Financing the Startup of Start-up Communities
While they are long, then are worth reading slowly. He’s got a lot of insights both about Russian startups, the idea of “clones”, and startup communities in general.
