International Youth Economic Forum
Pavilion G, Conference Hall G1

The globalization of markets is one of the main economic trends of the 21st century, and taking account of the boom in tech-oriented startups, business executives are seeking the most effective solutions for localizing technology and attracting venture capital investment into the developing Russian market. In response to this, Russia is throwing open its doors to foreign entrepreneurs and innovators. However, not all young Russians in business are aware of the opportunities available to them to partner with foreign investors. How can young Russian entrepreneurs cultivate ties with foreign investment partners? How can they attract foreign financing and technology to their business projects? What global best practices for increasing young people’s participation in the economy can be adopted in Russia?
