New Boutique Consulting Firm Packed With Top Specialists to Help Finance and Launch Ground-Breaking Tech and Media Companies in Russia, CIS Markets, Offering Turnkey Corporate Service Solutions

BOSTON, MA -- (Marketwire) -- 01/16/13 -- Firebird International announced today the opening of boutique business consulting service operations in Boston and New York specialized in providing direct and third party investment procurement, direct content and technology sales, and fast-track patenting and registration in addition to a full suite of market evaluation and entry services to media and tech businesses from start-ups to conglomerates seeking to do business in Russia and the CIS in the most efficient, streamlined, and profitable manner, under the guidance of its team of energetic, ambitious, and extremely experienced consultants.

Firebird will work with a wealth of US and foreign of investors seeking to gain access to the brightest and most marketable companies that wish to expand their operations to this region of the world that has recently become a Shangri-La for media and tech companies, with many major established brands opening offices in the region and with investment, led by the Russian government, flowing in the billions and consistent profits significantly higher than anywhere else in the world. Firebird will, on a reduced and flexible combined fee and commission structure commit, for clients it deems to be promising, to extremely timely allocation of transparent capital for expansion and growth. Its target clientele in this service and otherwise will be small and mid-sized companies, many of which need assistance to fund expansion. Additionally, the Firebird SEED program will directly invest $50,000.00 monthly in three promising start-up companies meeting its criteria that are ready and willing to launch simultaneously at home and abroad.

Matthew Goldstein, co-founder of Firebird, specializes in the direct sale of content and technology licensing to regional firms, and localized brand and marketing development, on behalf of US and European companies. He has worked for over 15 years in this field as an agent, performing huge deals for major companies. He has executed several ground-breaking technology deals, including the creation and sale of the first working GPS network, for NAVTEQ, in Russia, and conducted content sales for studios including Fox, National Geographic, Disney, MTV, and Nickolodean. Presently, Firebird already represents major digital content provisioners and distributors and markets and sells its clients' content libraries, which consist of over 100,000 hours of film, movies, and music from over 100 studios. With Pricewaterhouse Coopers predicting Russia to become the third largest consumer of content in the world by 2015, Firebird is eager to continue amalgamating content to sell and is actively seeking out unique and/or niche producers and studios to represent.

The company works according to established formulas for successful international Russia and CIS-specific business development that it will use to build its own brand. The company hopes to become known for being the most efficient, affordable, dedicated and trustworthy partner in the market, specifically for small and mid-sized companies; but also for companies of all sizes and all budgets that are desiring to do business in Russia, the CIS and Eastern Europe and do not know how or can not afford to move the mountains needed in order to sell their products to a ravenous and exponentially growing amount of businesses, across industries, which are eagerly seeking out technology and content that they can not find easily and affordably through established channels. Firebird will not just advise its clients with a navigation map, but will actively participate, as necessary, to help in performing necessary business development and helping to quickly initiate long-term partnerships. It will also work with clients to operatively cut through red tape in order to help them garner licenses, patents and intellectual property quickly, with significantly less legal expense, with the goal of helping them to avoid spending money and time that they do not have to overcome regional bureaucracy and prevent it from inhibiting sales processes.

Although Firebird's specialization lies in media and mass-market technologies, its Firebird ENS division, run by Vice President and security technologies expert Sergei Yakovlev, is set up to cater to clients producing energy, nano, and security-related technologies, all of which are extremely in demand at present.

Yakovlev states, "Right now, the government of Russia is the primary investor in energies, securities and nano. This brings with it certain pluses and certain minuses. We will attempt to work hand in hand with all regional governments to the proper degree, and will seek out investment from them when we think the company is a good fit, but we want to make market entry for our clients more accessible, less about whom they know to begin with, how large or small they are, and without mandates regarding their expected partners and clientele. We will accept clients based on merit and marketability alone and allow private investors and partners whom we work with equal access to develop relationships with these companies, hoping to make the markets more accessible and equitable."

Thomas Hanson, Director of Business Development for Firebird, comments:

"We are looking to be provide everything necessary to make sure our clients are able to jump over high buildings in a single leap. While certain mega-conglomerates may have millions to waste before they start making hundreds of millions, most companies are on infinitely smaller budgets and can not afford to take on significant risk, if any at all. Likewise, we will be there for the conglomerates who have spent themselves to pieces and seen little to no return, but are ready to go about entry in a more rational fashion and give themselves another chance to experience success equal to that of their peers. So long as the product is relevant and the company well-structured we will be there as much as we are needed."

Firebird has launched its Web site and has already accepted its first clients.
