The methodology of the research consists of statistic and econometric analysis of factors, influencing amount of VC investments received by start-up companies in Russia from 2010 to 2018. The results confirmed the hypothesis that start-up companies in particular industries have an opportunity to raise more money than other ones.

In the next chapters, current trends of the VC market in Russia and factors of portfolio making were analysed, using the econometric methods. A number of regressions were simulated to explain factors of investment attractiveness of the Russian start-up companies.
