A new regular tour of the representatives of innovative economy All-Russian Start-Up Tour-2015 organized by Skolkovo Foundation was launched with the support of R.I.M. Porter Novelli Communications Agency.

On February 4, the All-Russian Start-Up Tour-2015, the largest project in Russia aimed at finding promising innovative technologies, was launched in Rostov-on-Don.

The All-Russian Start-up Tour 2015 promotes the development of competencies of beginning start-up teams that implement their ideas in the field of high technologies as well as the cultivation of startup communities across Russia that should consist of talented young entrepreneurs, investors, technopark representatives, leading regional universities and scientific research institutes.

The goal of the Tour is to find promising innovative solutions, which are in demand on the high-tech markets, and to help young developers to create their own development strategies.

As in previous years, the program is split into two parts: the training and the pitch competition. The program extension up to 2 days allows to arrange more seminars, master-classes and individual meetings of regional entrepreneurs and experts.  Moreover, it allows to increase the number of technological directions within the competition and the number of competitors. The program of the first day of the event includes speeches and master-classes for young innovators. The second day is devoted to the competition of pitch-presentations.

The events of the All-Russian Start-up Tour-2015 will take place from February 4 to April 28 in 10 cities, where the participants from all Russian Regions will come. Furthermore, there will be start-up tours in Astana and Minsk this year.
