Roscongress Foundation’s Social Platform Innosocium Foundation Involved in ASI Design Bureau Exhibition as Part of ASI Supervisory Board Meeting
Russian President Vladimir Putin chaired a meeting of the Supervisory Board of the autonomous non-profit organization Agency for Strategic Initiatives in Moscow. As part of the meeting, Putin also visited an exhibition area that ASI organized for its key focuses — education, medicine as well as urban and technological development — at one of the sites that was used to present the Roscongress Foundation’s social platform.
The Innosocium Foundation, the social platform of the Roscongress Foundation, participated in the ASI event in an effort to continue successful cooperation in the implementation of joint projects. For example, the Roscongress Foundation’s Building Trust Area site that was held at the last Eastern Economic Forum in Vladivostok featured a discussion about supporting youth entrepreneurship as one of the key factors in developing the country’s economy. The discussion was also attended by ASI General Director Svetlana Chupsheva, Russian Deputy Minister of Economic Development Vadim Zhivulin, and Roscongress Foundation Deputy CEO and Innosocium Foundation Director Elena Marinina, among others.
In addition to experts, the discussion was attended by the winners of the DevService hackathon, which was organized by the Innosocium Foundation together with the ASI in August this year. The hackathon is a competition that allows young programmers, designers, and other IT professionals to create a new joint project. The overall goal of the event was to create a unified platform to simplify business processes for young entrepreneurs.
«Our country is full of proactive and talented people who are essentially the locomotives of positive economic and social changes. In this regard, it is particularly important to utilize all opportunities in order to get young people fr om all regions of Russia as involved as possible in socially significant projects and various technological initiatives. Events like the DevService hackathon, which was organized by the Innosocium Foundation, the social platform of the Roscongress Foundation, together with the ASI, are a great confirmation of this», Adviser to the Russian President Anton Kobyakov said.
«We conducted an analysis of measures used to support young entrepreneurs in Russia and abroad, which revealed how inconsistent and cumbersome they are. To solve this problem, we carried out a hackathon, a joint project of the Innosocium Foundation, the social platform of the Roscongress Foundation and the ASI», said Pyotr Merkhaliyev, one of the winners of the hackathon.
«The key objective is to create a sustainable platform for big business and the social sector to interact as part of the Roscongress Foundation’s largest business events in Russia and to support the most significant social initiatives in our country. We pay special attention to working with young people and supporting youth entrepreneurship, so we are very pleased that we were able to launch several joint projects with the ASI. A few months ago at the St. Petersburg Economic Forum, we had the idea to support a hackathon initiated by a youth group at the ASI. We brought together the winners of the hackathon from all over our country just two weeks ago at the Eastern Economic Forum in Vladivostok, wh ere we held several successful sessions», Marinina said.
