Moscow, where, unsurprisingly, many of Russia’s startups call home, is a far cry — culturally, socially, and historically — from Silicon Valley, but the growing number of entrepreneurs and enthusiastic local venture capitalists has made Russia a key producer of tech startups on the international stage.

 

Of course, Russian high technology is not new to the international scene (the anti-virus software, Kaspersky, and the note-taking service, Evernote, can attest to that), but the shiny, new products and ideas hawked by startups and the passion that backs them up are what is attracting international attention to the Russian tech industry. For me and my peers, the big question from the moment we conceive our startup idea has always been “when and how should we expand into the U.S. market?” Before my fellow startup peers get ahead of themselves and get swept away by the wave of their own entrepreneurial spirit, taking advantage of homegrown benefits are just as important.

Britain stands on the verge of an entrepreneurial revolution that ... | Rise of the Fourth Economy | Scoop.it

Advances in technology, the professionalisation of the skills base, the economic shake-up that was precipitated by the recession, the desires of many to work in a way that suits them: all of these factors have caused the numbers of self-employed and owner-managers to soar in recent years. Government figures show most of the new companies created in the last decade are micro-businesses.
