After this intense election season, don't you just wish you could hide away in Siberia somewhere...

Well, don't book that ticket quite yet – nearly a dozen Russian and Eastern European tech startups have come to you instead! Right now, in the Big Apple, they are working on anything from virtual reality to climate monitoring, and much, much more.

As software "eats the world," according to noted investor, Marc Andreessen, the region has started to come to the forefront as a technology powerhouse and rising star on Europe's eastern horizon. Jump-started by companies such as VKontakte, otherwise known as "Russia's Facebook," and other pioneers, the startup scene has grown exponentially.
