Yesterday marked another milestone for the city's international presence when Russian Venture Company and Russian Innovation Center hosted its cardinal event in Boston as part of Russian Innovation Week. The Hub was the first stop on RIW's multi-day tour, which is now underway in Silicon Valley."There's a stigma in other countries that everything [in entrepreneurship] in the U.S. happens in Silicon Valley," explained RVC CEO Axel Tillmann, who led the charge in bringing RIW to Boston. "Not many people know high tech in Massachusetts and the East Coast companies. It's really excellent stuff...we're building this on a very good tradition."
Zet Universe: Started by a former hacker of Microsoft Windows and ex-Google employee Daniel Kornev, Zet Universe is a reinvention of the way file exports and sharing works. The startup uses a fluid interface designed for touch screen mobile devices that allows users to drag and drop different files to create groups of documents to easily share to friends and coworkers via nearly all cloud platforms like DropBox. Similar to Google Docs, those shared can then make comments and all members can see what docs someone is looking at. Zet Universe's visual collaboration environment will be available for Android and iOS in the coming months.
