The Academy stage of the Startup Ecosystem program launched

The academic part – training phase of the Startup Ecosystem pilot program – was launched successfully on July 4th, 2020. Six mentoring companies, which at this stage act as business academies, have begun to conduct a series of business and soft skills building events in the format of trainings, webinars and consultations for more than 100 residents (participants) of the program. At the Academy stage, young participants will acquire and improve their knowledge and skills necessary for the successful launch of their business startups, such as basics of entrepreneurship, business idea development, team building, business planning, marketing and other topics. This stage will end in early August 2020, following which startupers already selected by mentoring companies will form teams and move to the acceleration stage of the Startup Ecosystem program.
