Operational Management and Business Research

Operational Management is designed for foreign companies that do not have a sufficient local presence to sustain their activities on the Russian market. The service is designed as an alternative to having a local office in Russia and focuses on solving various ad hoc tasks.

Operational management covers matters such as: communication with Russian partners, support in working with local service providers (e.g. legal and accounting), business intelligence, supervision and management of local operations, staffing solutions, secretarial and admin support, participation at trade shows and conferences.


  1. Business presence creation (Giving you flexible staffing solutions, desk space, temporary or permanent legal entity)
  2. Administrative support (Giving you admin support and compliance with Russian administrative requirements)
  3. Communication with Russian partners (Finding a common language)
