Abstract

Dieser Artikel behandelt die kleine Gruppe internationaler forschungsorientierter Start-ups in Russland und diskutiert deren Bedeutung für die russische Wirtschaft. Diese Gründungen entstehen aus etablierten akademisch-geprägten Netzwerken und konzentrieren sich auf die Vermarktung eigener Forschungsergebnisse. Dabei bringen diese Start-ups nicht nur neue Technologien nach Russland, sie entwickeln diese auch weiter. Wir zeigen statistisch dass Unternehmen, die diese internationale Kooperation als Strategie verfolgen, finanziell höchst erfolgreich sind. Anhand einer Gruppe von deutsch-russischen Kooperationen zeigen wir weiters, wie wichtig die Zusammenarbeit für die russischen Partner ist um die lokalen Schwierigkeiten erfolgreich zu vermeiden und um sich das notwendige unternehmerische Know-how anzueignen.
