A strange mix of developing and developed country, social entrepreneurship in Russia will be like nowhere else, and the efforts to create it are only just beginning. We are recruiting two reporters to report at the helm of this phenomenon by covering the first international conference on social innovation in Russia, called “Social Innovations Russia”.
