We build tech
bridges between
Russia and the world.
Rutech started in late 2016 as an independent initiative on a mission
to accelerate the growth of Russian-speaking Tech. Rutech is a collective
name for tech scene in Russia & CIS – New East as we call it.
This region is underrepresented in the international tech community,
and our goal is to change this.
Thought leadership: championing the Russian tech sector in Russia and worldwide via international trade missions, media engagement and events.
International bootcamps: running international exchange programmes to share experience, setup partnership programmes and provide more international opportunities to the Russian tech talent and startups.
Access to new markets: facilitating global expansion of Russian tech companies, encouraging international tech companies to do business in Russia and opening up international investment opportunities for Russian tech companies.
