Following the redline of the event, Mr. Borovikov shared the experience of Russky Technopark on adapting to the pandemic and spoke about the "Startup as Diploma" Student Online Accelerator. "For 1,5 months out students the lectures and master classes by the top-notch experts, worked every week with professional mentors, and, as a result, presented their full-fledged projects during the final Demo Day.

This experience brought us enormous positive feedbacks, which left us no choice but to pursue this approach further", - highlighted Russky Technopark CEO.
