Today, young entrepreneurs are building advanced technology businesses. However, any innovation requires investment to successfully bring it to market. While there is capital in Russia that can be invested in areas that are strategically important for the sustainable development of the country, matching investment with ideas and talents is not always easy. Young entrepreneurs can use the SPIEF platform to present their digital transformation projects to investors. Ten projects based on the following categories will be selected in advance:
• The Internet of Things
• Big data
• FinTech and blockchain
• Augmented and virtual reality
• Artificial intelligence and machine learning
The potential of blockchain technology is far greater than the creation of cryptocurrencies. Its introduction will enable economic and technological advances in a range of different fields. And Russia can lead this process.
