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.

Entrepreneurship in Technology Forming the Future Economy
26 May 2018
11:45—13:00

In an age of cross-border educational and economic opportunities, young professionals are not limited in their choice of country for developing a technology business, enabled primarily by the ubiquitous proliferation of the internet and the opportunities it provides to assemble international teams of specialists. Business development infrastructure supporting high-tech innovation is both a sign of prestige for an economy, and one of the key factors influencing the decisions of entrepreneurs who are creating products in response to demand and technological progress. Projects with great scientific potential often do not reach the commercial stage if there is no advanced culture of creating technology businesses, and projects do not get past the prototype stage. This means that companies are not testing products and therefore cannot substantiate their value and practical application. It is vital to reverse this trend to avoid any intensification of technological backwardness, as business leads progress around the world. Is Russia prepared for accelerated scientific and technological developments and global leadership in attracting international teams interested in working in Russia and for Russia? What steps should the state and business community take?
