Profile

LABORATORY OF NEW INFORMATION TECHNOLOGIES is Russia’s leading group of IT-companies with about three decades of successful history. The group consists of various IT-companies providing full range of IT-services. It constantly enhances the product range by implementing new cutting-edge technologies and most demanded solutions. The LANIT group of companies includes the corporate venture fund LANIT Ventures ("LANIT Ventures"). The Fund invests and supports young Russian companies that develop their own software products for B2B/B2G markets and already have their first sales. The Fund finds and develops high-tech projects, significantly increasing their investment potential. The Fund's participation includes not only financing, but also sales assistance, advice on legal, financial, tax issues, protection from errors. Startups receive assistance in building a marketing strategy and communications with customers. Currently, the fund is developing projects in the field of artificial intelligence, big data, predictive analytics, fintech, virtual reality, IoT, cloud technologies, etc. The fund works in the market of B2B/B2G solutions, but as investors, we also look at B2C solutions. First of all, we are aimed at the Russian market. The goals of each of our investments in product companies are: the creation and development of a product that is in demand by a large number of customers, the withdrawal of the company to self-supine and positive cash flow and, as a result of the first two points, the growth of shareholder value. Investment check - from 15 to 300 million rubles in one project. The fund prefers to invest in high-tech startups at an early stage, because it is at this stage that it can bring them the maximum benefit - form a strategy, fit into the ecosystem, etc. The selection of projects for investment is very careful. We try to find companies that already have market-tested solutions and revenue, where product risk is minimized, but for the LANIT group of companies there is an opportunity to significantly increase sales in the framework of cooperation with such companies. We look at each company, first of all, as an independent business. All companies within the LANIT group of companies have operational freedom and are managed by a shareholder within the board of directors/shareholders. If it is effective and meaningful, then the company can integrate into existing LANIT businesses.
