On Monday, 13 April the Roscongress Foundation will host an online conference under the theme of Pandemic 2020: Opportunities and Obstacles for the Innovation Sector. The event is set to get underway at 15:00 (MSK).
Technology companies at various stages of development are already finding themselves in a difficult situation in the light of the crisis brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic. Significant cash flow reductions may prevent them fulfilling all their obligations and lead to the suspension of critical research and development activities. At the same time, the new reality provides additional development opportunities for many companies, and it is important that they are able to take advantage of this. Who should be helping start-ups and how? Representatives of leading development institutions and venture funds as well as entrepreneurs will discuss the steps that industry participants should now be taking and the actions already being undertaken.
