Though education in this city lags, its startup growth is strong. Moscow opened a huge business park last spring that's reportedly been built to house more than 1,000 homegrown Russian startups. The park was also created to house the research and development arms for some of the world’s largest technology companies including Intel, Cisco and Samsung. Facebook also looked into building an R&D facility there when Mark Zuckerberg visited in 2012. The goal of the park and the R&D push is to create a VC friendly environment that positions Moscow as a key place for foreign companies to invest.
