The Global Cleantech Innovation Programme for Startups in Armenia, UNIDO


The Workforce and Entrepreneurship Development team of USAID Enterprise Development and Market Competitiveness Project in Armenia developed a project seeking to sustainably promote entrepreneurship and startups development in Armenia and for the purpose we invited an expert from Silicon Valley – Mr. Richard Rasmussen.
Mr. Rasmussen visited Armenia twice. During the first visit he had meetings with all entrepreneurship related organizations, research centers, and educational institutions and based on the meetings, discussions and analysis he developed a strategy on how more effectively to promote entrepreneurship and startups development in Armenia; he suggested to develop entrepreneurship centers within universities to promote entrepreneurial and innovative thinking among youth and promote enhanced cooperation between the university centers and other entrepreneurship related organizations including labs, accelerators, incubators, etc.
During his second visit Mr. Rasmussen developed an entrepreneurship course for teaching entrepreneurship at universities and he conducted two training for trainers for lecturers and experts from universities and from entrepreneurship related organization from around Armenia.
I believe Mr. Rasmussen did a highly professional work in Armenia; bringing new fresh view and thinking on entrepreneurship and startup development. His work was highly evaluated by all local experts and the model he suggested proved to be highly effective in case of Armenia. Without any reservation I highly recommend Mr. Rasmussen.

Rick was a dynamic leader that organized, expanded, and gave direction to a newly funded start-up. He brought his years of experience to help shore up a founding team that was in need of leadership. He showed a comprehensive, current and detailed understanding of the industry and the technology behind it. His ethical standards are second to none.

Todd Fitch
Technology Professional & University Professor
I was fortunate to be able to work with Rick on a number of projects during our program. He’s very intelligent and insightful and his broad knowledge and background was instrumental to our success on projects from Marketing to Economics. He easily flows between technical and non-technical subjects and has the unique ability to explain anything to anyone in terms and concepts that they would understand. I was continually amazed by Rick’s ability to frame discussions at a high level and cover the important points, yet also have a firm grasp of the nitty-gritty details that went into the high level discussion. I would absolutely work with Rick anytime on any project. If you have the opportunity to work with him, take it.
