The Roscongress Foundation – a socially oriented non-financial development institution and a major organizer of international conventions; exhibitions; and sporting, public, and cultural events.

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 126 economic partners; industrialists’ and entrepreneurs’ unions; and financial, trade, and business associations from 69 countries worldwide.

Infrastructure development for social entrepreneurship and innovation
2 June 2017

Russian social entrepreneurship matches its Western peers in terms of innovative potential and social value. The difference lies in the scale and, most importantly, the dissimilarity of the Russian social and institutional environment. In the last five years, we have seen improved social business projects and their successful roll-out all around the country. Is it already time to draft and adopt a separate law on social entrepreneurship? Does the existing infrastructure for supporting and developing social entrepreneurship and innovation meet modern requirements? How can information support for new projects be ensured?
