Created by and for entrepreneurs, RuHUB.de is a non for profit initiative with a purpose of helping Russian & CIS startups to settle in Germany and succeed on a European market. We are a network, a community & a connection point for tech founders, investors, accelerators and other organizations interested in Russia & CIS region.
Why we do it
In 2016 we did it ourselves: startup which was based in Saint-Petersburg, expanded to Europe. After going through all challenges of moving Russia based startup, including numerous M&A and due diligences, we felt a need of sharing this experience with others and helping them accelerate this process. Our ultimate goal is to increase a number of successful tech ventures founded by Russians & CIS in Germany by creating a support system for entrepreneurs and building a bridge between startups and venture capital market.

I founded an AdTech startup that being based in Saint-Petersburg, Russia, managed to succeed in Europe and the US. After successful exit I moved to Berlin, Germany to proceed with the product development and growth under a new brand. Experience of moving Russia based startup to Europe, going through several international M&As, dozens of Due Diligences, made me think that there are other CIS startups living the same. I really wanted to bring value to more people and be able to help others succeed on this market. Besides I missed people with the same mentality who would understand my culture. All that led me to create what is called today RuHUB.de.
Originally from St. Petersburg, Russia, for 6 years I had worked in a largest global youth-led non for profit organization AIESEC where I held different roles including leading national operations in Russia and managing international congress with +1000 participant from +110 countries. In 2013 I started working for a financial consulting firm in Mexico city, leading marketing & communications area of international business center. Later I moved to a Colombian Caribbean coast, where I have founded Impact Hub Barranquilla, globally connected entrepreneurship & social innovation center that supports early stage impact driven entrepreneurs. I have joined RuHUB.de because of my passion towards entrepreneurship and collaborative communities, and this project unites these two elements together.
