The phase of a large-scale event in Russia on finding promising innovative projects started in the Kuban capital. Krasnodar will take Startup Tour 2016 for two days – on March 14-15.
About 500 participants from the Krasnodar Region and other regions of the Southern Federal District and the North Caucasus District, the Republic of Crimea and Sevastopol met at the Kuban University of Technology. The main objective of the Russian Startup Tour project is to help innovative projects become a real business.
The Vice-Governor of the Krasnodar Region Sergey Altukhov said that holding the All-Russian Startup Tour in the region is a great incentive for innovation development.
- In the current difficult economic conditions, the main emphasis is performed on innovations and innovative companies which create the value added in the economy as much as possible, give it new points of growth and create new jobs. It is important that these projects receive support from both development institutions and authorities, Sergey Altukhov said.
