Corporate accelerators 2016

Corporate GenerationS accelerators are a set of measures for the development of start-ups, co-developed with industrial partners. Their purpose is to help the teams to modify their product in constant interaction with a potential customer and to test the business model and prepare the project for its successful entering the market.

The intensive corporate accelerator programs consist of industrial and business units, during which Russian and foreign experts carry out their lectures, workshops, and master classes. In addition, during the accelerators, visits to production facilities of industrial partners are organized, as well as international internships, specialized training on key topics of technological entrepreneurship in the field of financial technology, services and e-commerce are conducted. Mentors and experts will be the specialists and top managers of industrial partners.

At the end of each accelerator, a Demo Day will be held, at which the projects will be presented to the investment committee and the scientific and technical council of the partner corporations, where a decision on further work with each particular project-graduate of the accelerator will be made.
