TechnoSpark became the best technopark in Russia for the sixth time in a row

The Association of Clusters, Technology Parks and SEZ of Russia (ACTP RF) summed up the results of the VII National Rating of technoparks of Russia. For the sixth year in a row, the rating is headed by the TechnoSpark Group of Companies.

In 2021, 40 out of 183 technoparks in Russia were included in the rating. Experts assessed the best management practices and contribution to the development of the high-tech sector of the Russian economy by 21 indicators.

The rating was carried out in five groups (sub-indices), in each of which the experts of ACTP RF identified the leaders. Having headed the VII National Rating of Technoparks, TechnoSpark received the highest efficiency rating for two sub-indices at once – for innovative activity of residents and investment attractiveness.

“The national rating of technoparks is a powerful analytical tool designed to replicate the best approaches to development. Getting into the rating is a positive signal for Russian and foreign investors. The results showed that industrial parks are an entry point for the localization of production. Reducing costs and removing infrastructure barriers contributes to the intensive production of competitive products, including those with export potential.“

Andrey Shpilenko, Director of the Association of Clusters, Technology Parks and SEZ of Russia

CEO of TechnoSpark Oleg Lysak commented on getting into the top of the rating:

“The leading position of TechnoSpark in the rating of the Association of Clusters, Technology Parks and SEZ of Russia is recognition of the effectiveness of the proactive model of our work. We don’t wait for resident startups to come to us, we create and produce them ourselves. And already behind the ones we have created, other interesting technology companies are catching up.

This model of work was called a “startup studio” seven years ago. That’s what we put in the core of the TechnoSpark. We are serially launching new businesses that form new growth points of the city and the region, create new high-tech jobs.

Our specialization is deep-tech (robotics, photovoltaics, flexible electronics, genetics and biotech). All these are high-capital-intensive and long-term projects. Therefore, it is critically important for us and for our startups to attract professional investments. Both private ones, which today are focused more on the late stages of startups, and institutional ones – for the earliest stages. The key role here is played by the Fund for Infrastructure and Educational Programs of the Rusnano Group.

In 2020, we managed to adapt to new working conditions amid the coronavirus threat. We not only improved efficiency, but also found new opportunities for growth. Our leading tech startups – Ronavi Robotics, SOLARTEK, BeerGenomics, TEN Medprint, SportTech (sports start-up cluster) and many others – are already active in their markets. TechnoSpark, in turn, continues to create new startups. They will provide us with consistently high growth rates in the next few years.”

The expert council included representatives of the State Duma of the Russian Federation, the Ministry of Industry and Trade of the Russian Federation, the Ministry of Economic Development of the Russian Federation, the Industrial Development Fund, the Fund for Infrastructure and Educational Programs of RUSNANO, the Center for Sectoral Economics of the Federal State Budgetary Institution Financial Research Institute of the Ministry of Finance of the Russian Federation, the Analytical Center under the Government of the Russian Federation, the Russian Union of Industrialists and Entrepreneurs, etc.
