The Challenges and Prospects of Youth Entrepreneurship
Together with St. Petersburg State University, we have presented the so-called GEM – it is an index of entrepreneurial activity based on measurements taken in 112 countries. So, it says that Russia has only 5% of people willing to open a business. The question is whether 5% is a lot. Half of them are the people who already own a business, and half of them do not have one.

This number has a good potential for growth

The Challenges and Prospects of Youth Entrepreneurship
Our mission is to provide digital services to both experienced and beginner entrepreneurs. We develop our services within the Sberbank ecosystem. Our idea is that through Sberbank, through its partners, business should get quality services – starting with opening a business through your phone. Eight thousand companies have already been launched and opened accounts without people ever leaving the comfort of their homes. The second this is getting credit.

The National Project to Develop SMEs: What Will Be Done in the Far East?
Employment and the number of small companies in the Far East is about the same as it is throughout the Russian Federation in principle. Pay attention to how the loan portfolio behaves. Whereas growth throughout Russia is roughly 1%, it’s nice to see that lending to small businesses in the Far East is growing at a pace that is 12 times faster
