To participate, submit the application form before November 20. Fulfil the form: present your project, explain what problem it can solve and reflect on how it can be implemented. The competition is aimed primarily at early-stage projects, as we are looking for innovative ideas, not thoughtful business plans.
Seven contestants selected by the jury by November 26 will present their projects for the Public Review, an open event within the conference’s programme that will see the winner and the runner-up selected.
The event will take place in Saint Petersburg, on December 2.
The jury consisting of Strelka KB, Gazprom Neft and IIDF representatives will choose the winner, who will be awarded the In the City grant of 150,000 roubles.
The runner-up, selected by IIDF (Internet Initiatives Development Fund) in a special nomination, will win free access to ‘Start, startup!’ online education course. The course will help entrepreneurs to shift from the idea to sales, and find necessary funding.
