Working with venture projects we came across the other problem – not all ideas transfer in working business. In order to solve these problems we made a grant for development of projects’ business-plan, focused on increase and improvement of fundraising technologies. At the Contest of innovation project-2013 of the Higher School of Economy we have met a lot of interesting ideas. With some of them we will continue working”.
