The fourth issue of BIGMOSCOW (Business Investment Guide to Moscow) for 2017 is out now. The magazine offers advice and information to international entrepreneurs wishing to invest in small and medium-sized businesses in Russia.
The focus of the current BIGMOSCOW issue (October-December 2017) lies on franchising, especially on the activities of foreign franchisors in Russia. About one third of Russian franchisees work with international franchises. In total, there are 78,400 franchise-based outlets in Russia, while the market capacity is estimated at 400,000. Therefore, the growth potential is immense.
The entrepreneur Christopher Wynne recounts his experience with the “Papa John’s” master franchise in Russia and explains why he turned from a financier into a restaurateur.
The protagonist of the cover story is the German businessman Frank Duhse. In the current issue of BIGMOSCOW, he talks about developing German-Russian business relations in both directions.
You’ll also learn why the Swiss Jörg Duss, who has been living in Russia for twenty years, is spending money that he made renovating the fanciest of Moscow homes on developing a farm in the hinterland. And also how the Canadian William MacDougall earns a profit from the import of Russian art to Russia.
Under “Modus vivendi” and “Modus operandi” you will, as always, find many useful tips and information about business and everyday life in Moscow – for instance, how expats rent apartments in Moscow, and to which schools they send their children. The business and life coach Gil Petersil discusses the peculiarities of networking in Russia and explains why one can only recommend business acquaintances to one another with great caution here.
BIGMOSCOW is published in Russian, German and English and is available for free download via App Store and Google Play.
