The track Creative of GenerationS names its finalists in the categories of "fashion" and "education"

A DemoDay of the Creative track was completed in Moscow. The track is part of RVC’s GenerationS, the largest competition in Russia and Eastern Europe to accelerate startup companies. The selection was held among the projects in the field of fashion and education. The winning teams come from Moscow and Kaliningrad; they shared a prize fund of 1 million rubles, which was granted by the industrial partner of the track, the Faberlic company, and received an invitation to the finals of GenerationS-2017.


The first place and 500 000 rubles in prizes was received by AVA EVA, an online platform where you order custom-made clothes.


The second place and 350,000 rubles went to the "education" project "HintEd - Digital Adoption Platform", which is an interactive micro-learning platform that allows you to quickly master a complex program by creating a series of hints in the interface.


The third place and 150 000 rubles was won by the project Private Sale: a trading platform to sell clothes and accessories, which resembles a well-known dating application Tinder.


The jury also highlighted three other projects:

LAR-X (3D printer for clothes and knitwear), bustCAD (three-dimensional designing of clothes) and 3D Fashion SketchMaker (a tool for creating 3D clothing patterns). All of them will complete international training courses.
