The significant investment in Russia’s burgeoning digital sector is testament to the country’s ambition to diversify the economy.
Three-quarters of Russia already has 4G coverage and, with a population of more than 140 million, there are more internet users than in any European country. With more than one-third of citizens connected to the internet and more than half connected through smartphones, Russia is transforming through mobile connectivity.
As the third largest mobile operator in the country, Beeline connects millions of people everyday. One of Russia’s most valuable brands, Beeline meets the growing needs of its customers for data through constant innovation. The company also trials ground-breaking digital projects, such as using connectivity to help individuals with speech and visual disorders interact with smart phones and computers.
Democratising mobile learning is a major focus area for Beeline Russia. It does this through programmes like GoTech, a forum that brings together relevant contributors in the start-up ecosystem and Beeline Women Pitch, an initiative designed to specifically support female entrepreneurs.
