The Roscongress Foundation is a socially oriented non-financial development institution and a major organizer of international conventions; exhibitions; and business, public, 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, and 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 5000 people working in Russia and abroad. In addition, it works in close cooperation with 163 economic partners; industrialists’ and entrepreneurs’ unions; and financial, trade, and business associations from 75 countries worldwide.

The Roscongress Foundation has Telegram channels in Russian (t.me/Roscongress), English (t.me/RoscongressDirect), and Spanish (t.me/RoscongressEsp). Official website and Information and Analytical System of the Roscongress Foundation: roscongress.org.

Women in the Development of Social Enterprise
13 October 2021
16:00—18:00
Female entrepreneurship has helped drive economic growth in several countries around the world. The proportion of women in social enterprise — a sector aiming to address social issues — is 50% higher than in traditional commerce. And social entrepreneurs have come to the fore during the pandemic, as they rapidly shifted their focus to anti-crisis and charity work. According to experts, demand for initiatives aimed at improving people’s quality of life will only continue to grow.

What social enterprise development strategies around the world have been most successful? What forms of social enterprise have proven to be most resilient during the COVID-19 pandemic? What can be done to roll out successful social projects across a larger area? What knowledge and skills are needed to succeed in social enterprise? In terms of offering support in Russia, what should be the subject of focus from a governmental, legislative, corporate, and regional perspective?
