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.

The Venture Economy in Developing Countries
3 June 2021

COVID has become a driver of accelerated growth of the digital economy. Industries that rely on digitalization of conventional offline areas of the economy are growing by tens or even hundreds percent annually, while the traditional, brick-and-mortar economy is bordering on a recession. Experts also agree that there is now a surplus of cash available in capital markets. Put together, this bodes well both for the launch of new business ideas and for existing startups going public. How can companies effectively tap the venture investment market and get access to new business ideas and projects? How can funds build an efficient funnel of selection and competition for the best and brightest, and which criteria to apply? How can VCs and corporation collaborate? What strategies and return on investment horizons do venture funds see today? What does it mean to be a successful VC or a successful startup in present-day reality?
