business angels of russia the current state
Business Angels of Russia. The current state.
  • Business Angels (BA) are not formed as a part of society, the state or the economy
  • Fragmented – some BA with a poor interaction between each other
  • UNIDENTIFIABILITY of BA
    • There is no concept of “business-angel” in society nor the state as an investor-subject of the economy,
    • Potential investors (by availability of capital) do not identify themselves as BA – lack of information, knowledge and experience
  • Financial insufficiency – a small volume of funds in the BA sector
business angels the information deficit
Business Angels. The information deficit.
  • Introduction of the BA term into the everyday language
  • Creation of a positive BA and SIC (small innovation companies) image in the public consciousness – the architects of the economy of knowledge, economy of the future, the benefit for everybody: the citizens, the society and the state
  • Explanation of the essence of BA and their activity, one team (BA, inventors and managers) and aim, new relations, confidence, mutual aid and respect
  • Capital formation in the BA sector, demonstration of the BA profitability, availability and history of success
  • Important social function: investment in intellect and science, creation of the new enterprises and workplaces
