Philadelphia, PA – The Mid-Atlantic - Russia Business Council (MARBC) is pleased to announce the Days of Russian-American Innovation Entrepreneurship Cooperation, which, for the first time, will occur simultaneously with the Semi-Annual Russian-American Innovation Technology Week (RANIT). Activities from both events will start in Philadelphia and the Mid-Atlantic region on November 8, 2010 with an opening ceremony in Philadelphia City Hall. 2010 marks the 15th year anniversary of the Biennial Russian-American Business Opportunities Symposium and there will be a celebration to commemorate this event. One of the leading events will be the 6th Annual Russian-American Technology Entrepreneurship Conference in Philadelphia. Additional events will include a roundtable at the International Incubator at the Science Center. MARBC is also organizing Russian participation in the IMPACT 2010 Conference on November 9-10, 2010 in Philadelphia. IMPACT is one of the biggest and oldest venture capital events in the United States. A Russian delegation of entrepreneurs and industry executives will participate in a number of venture capital business events and learn about the U.S. venture capital industry. This event is an important part of the MARBC’s Program for Russian-American innovation cooperation.
As the important part of the Days of Russian-American Innovation Entrepreneurship Cooperation, MARBC is organizing the Russian participation in the IMPACT on November 9-10, 2010. Highlighting the wide variety of investment opportunities in the Mid-Atlantic region, IMPACT is one of the oldest venture capital events in the United States and continues to truly be a catalyst for companies and capital. Participants at IMPACT share their knowledge of the seed and venture capital industry, as well as discuss the best strategies and tools for building and managing strategic investment programs and institutions. IMPACT showcases the best young and developing companies and provides these companies with incomparable exposure to the top venture capitalists and private equity investors. IMPACT features a technology track, presenting companies in various technology areas, such as information technologies, telecommunications, nanotechnology, clean energy, biotechnology and life sciences. The IMPACT continues to build upon the momentum created at last year’s success by adding eagerly anticipated new content sections to this year’s program, including Angel to Venture, Institutional Investing, Technology Transfer, Business Development and Strategic Growth.
As in previous years, MARBC is continuing its commitment towards being a Supporting Organization of IMPACT, and will bring a delegation from the Russian venture industry and emerging Russian companies to participate at IMPACT.
