With united Siberian and Russian Venture Fairs we're on the right track

The author of this post is Albina Nikkonen, the Executive Director of the Russian Venture Capital Association. You are welcome to go to their website to find out more about the organization.

The United 14th Russian and 7th Siberian Venture Fair will take place in the framework of International Forum of technological development “Technoprom-2013” in Novosibirsk, November 14-15. This synergy is not accidental. The Forum lays a serious claim to become not only the center of attraction for present-day high-tech business, but a reflection of future prospects of international cooperation, too. In this connection, in the context of such concept the approaching movement of two large-scale events – Venture Fair with its experience and Forum with its ambitions and strategic initiatives – looks very promising in its capacity of driver for the process of global changes.

Selection of Novosibirsk Oblast as an arena for the events is well-grounded. Siberian federal district – the region with well-established academic traditions, which more than half a century retains leading positions in the science and technology sphere – has been long since prepared for such global project. Originality of geographic position of the region makes such event an integral part of solution for many strategically important tasks in Russia and abroad.

It is not a secret that Russia, from the technological point of view, is situated in “isolated” position today. I agree with the words of Igor Agamirzian, Director of RVC, that “… there is a warp in system of values in Russia… As far as a banker, bureaucrat, or an official of large oil company have prestige with the society, what kind of investment development may be? The heroes of present days should be teachers, scientists, technological entrepreneurs…”

Maintenance of such image misbalance can lead to human capital scarcity and lack of promising innovative projects. In order to bring back interest to entrepreneurship, to development and commercialization of projects in manufacturing sphere, the investment environment should correspond with the needs of the united economical space of all technologically developed countries. This is not only legal aspects of deals, common understanding of venture investment principles, usage of scientific achievements in real life and economy, but also total commitment in the development of the technological projects sector that will constitute material part of day-by-day life of people. Fundamental principle of venture business – “to earn money, make the consumers’ life better” – this is a slogan of tomorrow.

Joining the 6th Technological Mode is one more task in front of business community of our country, which includes development of biotechnologies, nano-electronics, robotechnics, creation of artificial intellect and new level education systems. These important elements of progressive future are crucial for international positioning of Russia as economically advantageous sector. The “format meetings” which are directly connected with setting constructive dialog between Russian and foreign venture community will be able to adequately respond to the challenges of tomorrow.

The Venture Fair for the years of its conducting in the regions was able to give an opportunity to reveal potential of many talented scientists, inventors and developers that allowed in the future realizing a number of innovation projects. On the base of international experience of conducting such events which are the drivers of communicative progress, one can say with confidence that organizing the United 14th Russian and 7th Siberian Venture Fair in the framework of “Technoprom-2013” International Forum is a step in right direction, and we’ll look forward to its results.
