According to Mikhail Fedotov, Board Member of RVC, RocketData is the first investment project of RBF Ventures in Belarus: "There are simply no comparable analogues of the proposed service in the former CIS area ...

The deal between RBF Ventures and RocketData became the first of this kind in the country, where the “English law” tools introduced by Decree No. 8 “On Development of the Digital Economy” were applied during structuring.
