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 160 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.

Co-working Centres as a New Form of Government Support for Beginning Entrepreneurs
14 February 2018
11:40

Recent years have seen the ways of organizing work and space that co-working centres have to offer gain increasing popularity in Russia. Co-working centres are characterized by their flexible organization of workspace and their aspirations to form a community of residents and an internal business culture. This format is attracting the interest of the entrepreneurial community, and especially of those entrepreneurs who operate their businesses primarily via the Internet. Platforms like these provide startups with an opportunity to reduce the costs associated with doing business during the most difficult phase — getting their business off the ground. Government co-working centres offer residents not only free and fully equipped workspaces, but also accounting and legal services, regular educational events, and access to project mentoring institutions.

The idea behind government co-working centres is to provide a full spectrum of government support services in the form of a ‘package’ offer to residents. This will make it possible, using a combination of benefits, to encourage businesses to move out of the informal sector of the economy.

Key issues:

• A services-based approach to supporting beginning entrepreneurs

• Programmes for tutoring, mentoring, and accelerating the projects of co-working centre residents

• Cooperation between co-working centre residents and financial and credit organizations

• Prospects for the development of co-working centers in Russia
