We partner with the best US startups to replicate their model in Russia

About Us

Innovative power of American entrepreneurs

Our understanding of doing business in Russia

At rocket we belive in ru.net

We look to combine the innovative power of American entrepreneurs with our knowledge of what it takes to succeed in the Russian market.

We don't like the idea of just cloning a successful American company. Shameless cloning is stealing.

We prefer to partner with the most ambitious Western startups and help them grow in Russia and CIS in exchange for their technological knowhow. We clone responsibly.
