Almaz Capital Expands in Silicon Valley

WASHINGTON — Russian-American venture capital firm Almaz Capital has expanded its Silicon Valley team, adding a new managing director and a new investment chief, the firm has announced.

Ross Hangebrauck, a former Navy SEAL, financial adviser and "startup CEO," joins Almaz as managing director, while Daniil Stolyarov will serve as financial director, the firm said in a statement released Wednesday.

Stolyarov was described by Almaz as "a seasoned investment professional with more than 10 years of experience advising technology, media and communication companies in Russia and Silicon Valley on mergers & acquisitions, strategic partnerships, public and private financings."

Founded in 2008, Almaz Capital has offices in Silicon Valley and in Moscow and describes itself as practicing a "geo-connect strategy" focused on early- and expansion-stage venture investments in high-growth technology sectors.

… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.

Your support, no matter how small, makes a world of difference. If you can, please support us monthly starting from just $2. It's quick to set up, and you can be confident that you're making a significant impact every month by supporting open, independent journalism. Thank you.
