“Startup Village is a great platform for commercialization of Russian scientists’ innovative developments in three directions: IT, industry and biomedicine. This is a place for meeting of developers and investors,” postgraduate student of Altai State University said. “The scientists of our country told the audience about their recent studies, relevant research directions, and emphases in science. I managed to communicate with scientists from other regions of Russia and get acquainted with scientific teams and groups, with which we are planning to carry out joint research.”

It is a unique site, where startup founders and innovators meet with successful entrepreneurs, investors, major technological corporations and government officials.
