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.

Network Communities and Institutions in a Glocalizing Society: Power Struggles Over Socium
In this sense, we have a new phenomenon, when there is a community, there is a state, there is a private business, and there are these incomprehensible organizations that also own communities, which [...] enjoy very great influence. We not only have people who have hundreds of millions of followers who [...] also influence their opinion. The emergence of new sects and new [...] movements that cause mass psychosis of people. We also see quite a lot happening now in the 21st century, especially against the backdrop of the pandemic,

Network Communities and Institutions in a Glocalizing Society: Power Struggles Over Socium
Right now [...] an interesting phenomenon is taking place: people are left alone with a lot of problems [...] The state will provide them with some kind of social protection, but, nevertheless, the feeling of loneliness is now one of the stable sensations that exists in society […] In this regard, the need for communities [is growing], including their greater formalization […] Communities that have entry rules, exit rules, a subscription, or membership fees. In America, a young person at age 25 now pays USD 200–300 per month for subscriptions, with [each subscription costing] a dollar or two,

Inheritance and Succession
The main thing is communication – we need to speak. Children need to feel what it is you are doing, so it doesn’t remain some abstract story

Inheritance and Succession
Sadly, we have the example of Natura Siberica [founder Andrey Trubnikov died in January 2021 – ed.]. It is a stark example of when there are three ex-wives and a manager fighting things out in court, and at that moment the company dies. So, there is the issue which is not so much to do with family relations, but with the fact that a huge number of businesses cannot operate, they cannot function. <…> It is crucial to understand that this [the problem of inheritance – ed.] is not merely a private family issue. It exists, and it is a separate subject, but more than that, it is an economic problem for society as a whole

Inheritance and Succession
When we speak about inheritance, about a legacy, we are not only talking about money, or about business. It goes much further than that. We are also talking about cultural values, family values, traditions, principles, and the spirit of a culture and family. And this is also very important, because we experienced a break in the chain linking us to the past. <...> The majority of people know, at most, three generations [of their family – ed.]. This is a big challenge, because we do need to restore this form of succession. <…> In 1917 it was broken, and now, for the first time in Russia’s history, we are faced with this serious endeavour

Inheritance and Succession
When considering inheritance and succession, we’re looking at something that runs contrary to living in the moment. We experience a phenomenon, a major dichotomy in our consciousness: we live one day at a time, and think that we are going to live forever. It is a strange combination of two incompatible things, and we think it won’t apply to us – we don’t want to think about it. But ultimately, the main thing is that when we speak about inheritance, we are not talking about death, but about a continuation. It is an acknowledgement that you want to leave something behind after you’re gone, because you may be leaving behind children, or the memory of what you have done
