Cool Idea: Separate Key Puts Your Stang Into Race Mode

On December 13, TechCrunch Europe is coming to Moscow, Russia, for our first ever “TechCrunch Moscow”. The event will be held at the first Russian private tech incubator, the Digital October Center, located in a historical manufacturing building Krasny Oktyabr (or “Red October” / Красный Октябрь in Russian). Our event will be part of the official launch of the building, which hopes to become Moscow’s leading digital / media / technology hub.

You can now buy tickets here.

More details on the final program and speakers will be announced soon, but to give you a sneak peek: it’s going to be pretty good.

TechCrunch Moscow is about supporting the startup and venture capital eco-system in Moscow and Russia. It’s also about uncovering the trends and the hottest companies and startups in the market right now. If you are in Europe for Le Web and want to spend a few productive days in Moscow, TechCrunch Moscow is your chance to check out the scene there.

Co-organised by us together with Kite Ventures, the conference will focus on the key issues regarding tech entrepreneurship in Russia, including:

• Opening the Russian market to multinational companies and competition

• Developing tech entrepreneurship community in Russia as an aid towards modernising and diversifying the economy

• Russian Going Global: What can Russia do to internationalise its tech entrepreneurship and to be more competitive in the global market

TechCrunch Moscow attendees will enjoy the opening ceremony of the state-of-the-art Digital October Center, enjoy a full day packed with speeches by the leaders of the industry, networking opportunities and a chance to preview promising Russian tech startups.

All speaker, sponsorship, exhibitor and attendee enquiries should for the moment be directed to TechCrunch Europe’s events directer, Aléna Dundas ( alena[@] )

    This explains why there was no red october chocolate in the stores.

    Note that Russia doesn’t have highly developed customer service; I was there a month ago and the Moscow tour company changed our schedule and when we complained because one of the places we wanted to go was closed, the response we got was “that was just a request.” People had also made arrangements with friends and to do other things, all of which needed to be rearranged when our schedule was not as we expected. The company was focused on short-term profit and didn’t make a connection between satisfied customers who might recommend them to others in future and future growth and profits of the company.

    • Tim

      So because your tour company sucked, we can conclude that Russia doesn’t do customer service?


      • Nan

        You misunderstand. Because Russia doesn’t do customer service, as there was no need under Communism, my tour company sucked. This is an example but is not an isolated incident. I’m told there has been much progress in the last 20 years but their standards of service are not the same as those in the US. If you schedule something here, and have confirmation thereof, barring natural disaster, you expect follow through; in Russia it could go either way, for any reason or none.

      • Mike Butcher

        And this has something to do with tech startups because…?

      • Andrey

        Such stories always sound so funny. At least you know where Russia is now:) I remember when I was working in Washington, DC, a couple of years ago, I met a guy selling Coca-Cola somewhere near the Mall, and he asked me where I was from. I told him I was from Russia. But he did not know even what Russia is and where it is situated. And he wasn’t kidding as I understood later trying to explain him…

        So neither people nor companies are all the same. I am sure you know that anyway.

        I would even say there are very interesting startups and grown-ups in the Russian business sector. I like my company, i-Jet Media, for instance. I believe it is because we are always in time:) If we did not do that, we would hardly become who we are…

        Quite complete story about us in English can be found here:

        So welcome to Russia! It is changing year by year…

  • Timothy Post

    First of all, nobody does customer service like America. Travel around the world and American will always rank near the very top.

    Secondly, I just spent two days in Moscow and even though I’ve been there dozens of times before, I was amazed at how the customer service has improved.

    Take the Aero-Express from Seremetyevo and you’ll think your in Western Europe. How about the hundreds of coffee houses (yes, Starbucks too) all over the city. I was in La pain Quotidien ( in Taganskaya Square and I couldn’t believe that this was the same Moscow that we all used to bitch about. There

    Moscow has some of the nicest supermarkets in the world. Try Globus Gourmet.

    The key bottom-line here is that while service in Moscow can suck at times (no different than any other city) there is nothing genetic in Russians that predisposes them to this result. Things are getting better and you, Nan, simply need to find a better tour company next time.

    What a lovely building. Makes me think of DEC’s old mill in Maynard, Mass. Ahhh, the good old days.

    See you there, folks!

His debut was short, too, but one he’ll Replica Joba Chamberlain Black Jersey never forget.
             Known as a speedy outfield prospect, he was called up to the Texas Rangers on Sept. 2, 1978, and found his name Replica Johnny Damon White Jersey in the starting lineup — at second base.”Second base? I Authentic Johnny Damon Grey Jersey was an outfielder,” recalled Sample, 53, who now works for stunned rookie stumbled Authentic Jorge Posada Black Jersey through the visitors’ clubhouse in Milwaukee, Replica Johnny Damon Grey Jersey looking for a teammate who could intervene on his behalf with Rangers manager Billy Hunter.”Can someone Replica Johnny Damon White Jersey tell Mr. Hunter that I don’t have a second Replica Joe DiMaggio White Jersey baseman’s glove?” Sample asked.
     Hunter pulled the Authentic Jorge Posada White Jersey rookie aside and explained his Authentic Joe DiMaggio Grey Jersey strategy. The Rangers were concerned about second baseman Bump Wills’ struggles at the plate. “They wanted to give me an at-bat and Bump would go on the field,” Sample said.Even with his manager’s explanation, Sample was skeptical. Who ever heard of a leadoff hitter leaving the game after one at-bat?”Sure enough, Jerry Augustine was on the mound at old County Stadium,” Sample said. Yankees Johnny Damon Authentic Jersey “First pitch, sinking fastball. I swing. Base hit to right-center field off the glove of a diving Sixto Lezcano.”I’m on first base. I got this Cheshire cat grin … and here comes Bump Authentic Jorge Posada Grey Jersey to pinch-run for me. Johnny Damon White Throwback Jersey That was my debut! I Joe DiMaggio White Throwback Jersey always wondered what (Brewers announcer) Bob Uecker must have thought: ‘Is this guy injured already?'”Sample had his best year in 1983, when he hit .274 with 12 home runs and 57 RBI. He also had Authentic Jorge Posada Black Jersey 44 stolen bases, Authentic Jorge Posada White Jersey fifth in the Replica Joe DiMaggio Grey Jersey American League.Before the 1985 season, he was traded to the New York Yankees for Toby Harrah. After that season, Sample was dealt to Atlanta, Replica Johnny Damon Grey Jersey where he played his last game in 1986. Ironically, it was in that last year Johnny Damon Grey Jersey that Johnny Damon White Jersey he had Authentic Joe DiMaggio White Jersey his only official appearance at second base.Sample got into sports journalism seven Yankees Johnny Damon Authentic Jersey years ago as a columnist Authentic Jorge Posada Grey Jersey for Baseball Weekly. Today, he’s making a bigger name in baseball as a Johnny Damon White Throwback Jersey video and radio correspondent for”I like Authentic Jorge Posada GMS The Boss White Jersey to fancy myself as being versatile,” he said from Dolphin Stadium recently while covering the Marlins-Phillies series.”I don’t Johnny Damon Grey Jersey think you have to Joe DiMaggio White Jersey be a former player to have great insight. It certainly helps. I like enhancing people’s appreciation of the game and often I’m in a Authentic Johnny Damon White Jersey situation where I can do that.”– Joe Capozzi
