have to do in the future. It is much more difficult to start a business and
become an entrepreneur. Thats why one of our priorities is to support young
people at the very beginning of the development of their project or business.
Young people are a driving force who contribute to economic growth, accelerate
modernization, and play an important role in boosting the countrys sustainable
development», Agency for Strategic Initiatives Corporate Director Yelena

participants communicated based on the principle of an open dialogue, as young

barriers that young entrepreneurs face. We are also developing a platform to
assist start-up entrepreneurs that contains informational, educational, and
navigational components. Our goal is to unite the efforts of young people to
create their own business with the efforts of successful businessmen to prepare
the younger generation for real life. It is essential for us to maintain a
balance between innovative young entrepreneurs and experienced adult
businessmen in order to achieve a symbiosis of the creative thinking that is inherent
in young people and the wisdom that is inherent in the older generation», Agency
