Young and ambitious business-lady in Russia: specializing in Government 2.0 in Russia, internet Startups, venture investments.
Having journalist educational background, I worked as a TV correspondent for Russian TV Channels (regional and federal) highlighting key political, economical events and social issues. However, I felt that pure journalism wasn’t my true calling. Having creative ideas to implement, persuasive messages to share, I wanted to do more than writing or making TV shows. She wanted to make a difference. My personal achievements, strivings and flamboyant personality resulted in what I'm doing now.
I'm proudly involved in developing the eGovernment initiatives in Russia. Founder of Virtual Incubator for Gov 2.0 projects in Russia named Gov2People.ru, I also developed a media platform eGov Live where all issues about eGov, public services' projects are gathered.
Being a startup-business expert, I founded StartUp Afisha – project designed to all potential and current entrepreneurs, investors and stratuppers that reflect the level of Russian startups development and integrate them all in one web-space.
Startup Women is another project I developed was within women entrepreneurship context. It represents a web community and virtual business incubator for women-entrepreneurs, experts and investors focused on IT, Media and the Web projects
Social practices is a new project aimed at social entrepreneurship development in Russia I'm interested in.
I'm a founder and CEO in fashion startup-project StarLook.ru and company BrainStorm AV that produces projects in the mobile and Internet TV field.

Blogging on innovations and eGovernment at www.alenapopova.com So you're very welcome to contact me and share your views, ideas, experience concerning eGov and other projects that are in my scope of professional interest. I'm looking forward to meeting new people and discussing eGov issues and world-known practices as well as collaborating and working together with those who is interested in my projects and Russia in general!!!
