The Roscongress Foundation is a socially oriented non-financial development institution and a major organizer of nationwide and international conventions; exhibitions; and business, public, youth, 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, 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 5,000 people working in Russia and abroad.

The Foundation works alongside various UN departments and other international organizations, and is building multi-format cooperation with 173 economic partners, including industrialists’ and entrepreneurs’ unions, financial, trade, and business associations from 78 countries worldwide, and 188 Russian public organizations, federal and legislative agencies, and federal subjects.

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.

Start-Ups as Catalysts of Transformation in Education
8 June 2019
10:00—11:15

The existing education systems lag far behind the needs of both society and the market. New, more flexible providers of education services are on the rise to fill the gap. Meanwhile, there are innovations taking place within the formal education systems that aim to meet the challenges of the times and improving practices. Specialists involved in the development of education are split over the three-dimensions of education — education as a service, a common good, and a government policy. Another group of actors in this system is becoming increasingly active — state support institutions, funds, education «greenhouses», and accelerators. How can the education ecosystem evolve and what is the contribution of various actors (teachers, managers, and businessmen)? How can we ensure the integration of new practices into existing educational structures? What support is needed by the start-ups and what kind of projects are investors looking for? Who can serve as an angel investor for education start-ups? Who are the mentors, evangelists, and ambassadors?
