Abstract

This is part of a case series. It was long believed that entrepreneurship in Russia is close to impossible without government or mafia connections. This case study argues that, on the contrary, 'garage-type' entrepreneurship is possible in Russia. For the Russians at Frontstep, the company in this case study however, there were no how-to manuals to turn to. When the employees started making demands for Western-level salaries and benefits, matters came to a head. The problem was solved as the founders developed a hybrid organisation, with Western incentives and structures and Russian corporate culture.
