The Roscongress Foundation is a socially oriented non-financial development institution and a major organizer of nationwide and international conventions; exhibitions; and business, public, youth, sporting, and cultural events. It was established in pursuance of a decision by the President of the Russian Federation.

The Foundation was established in 2007 with the aim of facilitating the development of Russia’s economic potential, promoting its national interests, and strengthening the country’s image. One of the roles of the Foundation is to comprehensively evaluate, analyse, and cover issues on the Russian and global economic agendas. It also offers administrative services, provides promotional support for business projects and attracting investment, helps foster social entrepreneurship and charitable initiatives.

Each year, the Foundation’s events draw participants from 208 countries and territories, with more than 15,000 media representatives working on-site at Roscongress’ various venues. The Foundation benefits from analytical and professional expertise provided by 5,000 people working in Russia and abroad.

The Foundation works alongside various UN departments and other international organizations, and is building multi-format cooperation with 173 economic partners, including industrialists’ and entrepreneurs’ unions, financial, trade, and business associations from 78 countries worldwide, and 188 Russian public organizations, federal and legislative agencies, and federal subjects.

Questions for the Skolkovo Foundation
6 September 2022
Given the changing landscape of global markets, the role of prominent development institutions is undergoing changes. Today, the focus is on solutions and developments that aim to ensure the country’s independence from imports in information technology, medicine, energy efficiency, and industry.
What role do development institutions play in the struggle for technological sovereignty? How is the government helping tech businesses today? Can companies adapt to the needs of the domestic market?
In the impromptu ring of the Innovation Space, leaders from the Skolkovo Foundation will answer some of the most pressing questions from startups, scientists, students, and the media. In turn, Skolkovo residents and project founders will answer questions from development institutions.
Questions include:
● The Skolkovo Foundation has always been associated with grants and support for companies in their early stages. Today, funding is shrinking and is low as it’s ever been. What’s next?
● Startups view any opportunity to leave the Russian market today as a chance and a golden ticket even though the Russian market has all kinds of new niches and earning opportunities today that did not exist a year ago. How can we change attitudes to incentivize companies to meet the demand in Russia?
● No company will achieve results without making its own efforts towards development. By shifting responsibility for the result to a development institution, it’s impossible to become a unicorn in your industry or simply a commercially successful company. How can we educate young tech entrepreneurs to be proactive and is this possible? Or does it depend solely on the personal qualities of the founder?
