Business Debut 2018-2019 starts its open program

Russian venture-building companies are inviting 100 business newcomers to work in technology startups

Seven largest venture-building companies in Russia from Saransk, Ulyanovsk, Troitsk, Novosibirsk, Tomsk, St. Petersburg and Moscow announce recruitment of final-year students as a part of the “Business Debut 2018-2019” program.

The selection of candidates will take place in all participating cities in the form of a one-day business game “Build a company. Sell the company.”

Registration is required for the qualifying games. You can register on the website by clicking on the link http://businessdebut.ru/

Based on results of the qualifying games, 100 best players will be offered the position of a “business newcomer” in one of the 100 startups of the nanocenter network. Each startup will receive 1 million rubles of investment for creating the product, salary and maintenance of the startup.

“The program is primarily aimed at final-year students in higher education, who either have already had experience of part-time work during their studies, or are focused on “getting started quickly”. For them, it is a chance to save a few years of their lives and try to do something themselves for the first time, to prove their entrepreneurial abilities, if they are identified as a result of the qualifying games. We are convinced, thanks to the new industrial revolution which is unfolding before our eyes, that Russia has a chance to create and grow technology companies in the material-based industries; lasers, electronics, robotics, additive technologies, genomics, composites; but we severely lack people who are able to do business in conditions of total novelty and uncertainty,” commented the CEO of the TechnoSpark venture-building company, Denis Kovalevich, on the launch of the program.
