There is a gap in knowledge in studies in innovative entrepreneurship development regarding the required level of education for innovative Russian entrepreneurs, which is necessary for independent business development in Russia. This paper attempts to find out extra managerial and innovative skills that are useful for further development of new innovative enterprises. To do this we made a survey of professional experience and education of Russian startup founders. We collected 92 CVs, which are our base for this research. Results are following: the majority of innovative entrepreneurs work in IT, they have a higher educational degree in Computer Science and Mathematics, and they have a professional experience including managerial one in large firms. The minority have an education related to innovative entrepreneurship and a third have MBA degree. Finally, we made conclusions about the further education of innovative entrepreneurs, which is based on knowledge management theories.
