Our Mission

NRG Ventures – is a new generation venture capital fund focused on global B2B tech startups with Russian-speaking founders, a rapidly growing universe of late as a result of emigration from Russia, Ukraine, and Belarus. We see our mission in supporting IT entrepreneurs while tackling environmental issues, and the solutions developed by Russian-speaking founders of global tech startups go in line with this concept
