On Monday, 13 April the Roscongress Foundation will host an online conference under the theme of ‘Pandemic 2020: Opportunities and Obstacles for the Innovation Sector’. The event is set to get underway at 15:00 (MSK).

Technology companies at various stages of development are already finding themselves in a difficult situation in the light of the crisis brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic. Significant cash flow reductions may prevent them fulfilling all their obligations and lead to the suspension of critical research and development activities. At the same time, the new reality provides additional development opportunities for many companies, and it is important that they are able to take advantage of this. Who should be helping start-ups and how? Representatives of leading development institutions and venture funds as well as entrepreneurs will discuss the steps that industry participants should now be taking and the actions already being undertaken.

A live stream will be available to watch on the Roscongress TV YouTube channel and on the official Roscongress Foundation Facebook page.

Conference themes:

  • Problems encountered by the technology sector during the crisis. Key areas of risk for small and medium-sized innovative companies.
  • How start-ups differ from traditional participants in the small and medium-sized sector, and the tools needed to support them.
  • The support tools that are available now, and the forms of assistance companies are receiving through cooperation with investors and development institutions.
  • The opportunities being made available to technology projects and the changes necessary in order for companies to take full advantage of them.
