Creating or adapting a business plan for the Russian market can be a demanding task, requiring detailed market research, familiarity with funding opportunities, informed financial planning and a thorough assessment of risks and performance issues.
There are multiple financing options available, both from private and state investors, and government support initiatives such as special economic zones, technology parks and regional support programs.
Our local consultants have detailed knowledge of these opportunities, and can help your business apply for optimal programs, find investment funds, and adjust your business plan to qualify for support and/or fit investor requirements.
Working with experienced and qualified local specialists rather than taking on the time- and resource-consuming task of business planning in-house ensures your new operation in Russia gets the best possible start.

We also offer full or partial outsourcing of CFO services, interim CFO appointments, financial modelling, corporate finance management and automation of financial management processes.
