Within the framework of GenetrationS-2017, a special Start-GenS competition will be arranged, which will involve entrepreneurs who have completed corporate accelerator programs. They will have the opportunity to fully present their projects to experts from the Foundation of Innovations Promotion. Winners, each of whom will get 2 million rubles, will be announced at the GenerationS Super Final that will be held in April 2018.
“GenerationS and the Foundation of Innovations Promotion started cooperation three years ago. The Foundation’s grants enable entrepreneurs to bring the project to a new stage. During the partnership the Foundation provided GenerationS graduates more than 200 million rubles, which indicates a high level of confidence in the RVC accelerator,” commented Mikhail Antonov, the Deputy General Director – the Director of RVC Innovation Infrastructure Development.
