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.

Establishing Inclusive Startups
5 June 2021
12:00—13:15

According to the World Health Organization, approximately 15% of the global population live with some form of disability, many of whom face major obstacles to achieving their ambitions. However, the spread of digitalization and automation is opening up new opportunities for young people with disabilities, and access to information and technology can help them achieve their full potential and make a major contribution to society and the economy. Social entrepreneurs are employing innovative solutions that are helping to break down stereotypes associated with traditional models, which were focused solely on economic growth. It is vital for the next generation of business leaders to think about social objectives in addition to profit. What support projects and acceleration programmes exist for young people, and what can be done to develop and unleash the potential of young people with disabilities? How important are education, innovative financial solutions (such as impact investing), and new business models (such as fintech startups)? What potential solutions could help support inclusive companies and facilitate growth?
