Now you can start any business based on the replacement of imports from Europe. It can be something simple. You just need to analyze what was bought in bulk. To do this, you can simply refer to the customs statistics. It can be food. How to make such a business? Yes, exactly the same: arms and legs, with a cold head and a warm heart. The crisis has not really changed anything, people are the same, officials are the same. Purchasing power has probably changed, and then only temporarily. And for a startup, it doesn’t matter.
Need to farm. For example, as Brother Yegor [Duda] suggests to me: we are all leaving for the Far East, we take “Putin’s land” (but not 1 ha, but 100 ha each) and begin to grow soy in the risky farming zone, and then sell it to China. Soy is a great business. Milk is good too.
What else? Small engineering logistics or components for assembly. In small cities, you can now create small warehouses and develop services for medium and small businesses. We have these niches empty. You can make Russian furniture. I just want to build a carpentry workshop. Suddenly? Well, well, it’s nice to sit and eat behind the furniture that I made myself. And you can also become an official, get money and a term later, too, but that’s another story.

The immediate future is for medical startups, for everything related to medicine: dietary supplements and medicines, pharmacies, clinics and the hospital sector. And if there is no appropriate investment for this, then you can do online consultancy applications and gadget-based recommendations – this is a whole expanse. We began to live longer, bodies began to age more actively, and care was needed for them. In this sense, Russia is 15–20 years behind the world’s achievements, but this provides an opportunity for copypaste. Ideally, it would be nice to invest in R&D and medical developments, but it is expensive and takes a long time to pay – we are not used to doing this.
