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.

Generation Z Business: Opportunities and Prospects
Promotion, the good propaganda. I want to turn on the TV, Channel 1, and I want to see talk about entrepreneurship. I do not MMA fighters or celebrity have the most followers on social networks… I want the most popular people to be entrepreneurs... The government can do this. How to make these people appear in these channels, to make them visible, so that people want to follow them – the government knows how to do this

Generation Z Business: Opportunities and Prospects
As for developing projects, they have already reached a certain level, have already something thought through. There is a presentation. Maybe they have their first clients. The government and the system as a whole have started generating such projects... But this is where it ends. They were brought to some condition in three months and that is it. From then on, they are let go and can do whatever they want. They are poor and confused. They do not know what to do. Where does one go to next? It is very difficult for each university and each individual accelerator initiative to build up the whole infrastructure

Generation Z Business: Opportunities and Prospects
We should try to push it out a little. I would say some, maybe mini or micro-grants – 50 or 100 thousand. The app is good, and the presentation is good. Your task now is to sell something, to do something. This is business. This is serious stuff. Few people cross this psychological barrier. They think that this is some kind of toy, some kind of contest, something showy. It is just for beginners

Competences of the Future: Learning and Teaching Soft Skills
Skills need to have a purpose. A skill is a tool – you use it to accomplish something. We are turning this upside down a little. We say: ‘You have a specific aim, you have a project which should work very well, and we will help you get to that point’. And in the process, people are already acquiring and developing their soft skills, and are even doing so unconsciously

Competences of the Future: Learning and Teaching Soft Skills
The issue is with the definition of soft skills. Perhaps it might make sense to call it something else in order to raise its status. I think we’re living in a time of soft skills. These are not the skills of the future; they are the skills of today. You could take a number of approaches to classifying soft skills. This is how we classify them at Sberbank. Traditionally, there are cognitive skills. You take action when surrounded by uncertainty, you need to create order out of chaos. Perhaps this is done by thinking outside the box, by taking a creative approach. Then you have social skills – the ability to communicate in a team, your feeling for a situation, and your willingness to contribute. The third category could loosely be termed emotional skills. These include your ability to deal with stress, your ability to react competently, and your understanding of yourself

How to Bring Russian Start-Ups to Asian Markets?
You have to distinguish between very young start-ups and slightly more experienced start-ups. The more experienced start-ups are a bit more rational. They are, I would say, more flexible and more aware of the global agenda. And they, of course, can see that they are reorienting. For example, some start-ups are trying to enter new markets on their own: Latin America, India, and maybe some have moved to Singapore. It is coming from their own experience... These pioneers are doing a very important and a very difficult job of paving the path

How to Bring Russian Start-Ups to Asian Markets?
As for the pivot to Asia: to be honest, it is not the smoothest one. Russia has traditionally been very focused on Europe... Everyone is already looking at Asia – even America is looking at Asia... Maybe we should pay attention to Asia? There is definitely something interesting there. Markets are growing, getting richer... Now, when the events of the 2022 have changed the situation completely, we see that it has not occurred to everybody. Most continue to knock on the same door, which may already be closed... Overall, this restructuring is very painful: people are generally not ready
