The Startup Village conference was in the Skolkovo Innovation Center last week, where Alexander Kiselev, co-founder and director of Mabius, told how corporations work with food startups.
At the Startup Village, startups meet with successful entrepreneurs, investors, large technology corporations and government officials to discuss trends and innovation ideas.
In recent years, interest in food startups has been growing in Russia, both from investment funds and from large companies. Alexander shared important information about what characteristics a startup should have in order to get into the accelerator; that they reach the startup in the accelerator and how the work with them is arranged. And also what opportunities are provided by further cooperation with the corporate partner.
The conference was most effective and interesting for all present. Alexander Kiselev: “Startup Village bad weather is not a hindrance – everyone who comes is interested in the topic of food! Super-cool experts, great networking after appearances. “
