In the near future Russia will no longer be known as a country whose strength lies just in natural gas development. Today we witness a rapid growth of the IT sector — the Russian Software Producer’s register has already been established, and every year there are new technological products on the market that can compete with foreign IT solutions on an equal footing.
The SKOLKOVO Innovation Center is considered to be Russian “Silicon Valley” and is known as first and so far the only platform for complex development of new technologies and their further commercialization.
The “city of the future” has Moscow School of Management SKOLKOVO, which is recognized as a leading business school in Russia and the post-Soviet space, and takes the lead in Eastern Europe in terms of quality of corporate programmes according to the Financial Times 2020 ranking.
Annually, SKOLKOVO Startup Academy and International Investor Organization INVESTORO unite the best graduates of MSM and representatives of leading venture funds during Investor Day. On the online platform, the best IT startups present their products to the field-oriented jury, and compete for investment to promote their brands.
The technological hardware-digital platform BRIO MRS was also presented at the final of the online pitch session in February. The project’s founder Ilnur Kharisov described challenges the construction sector faces today, and ways of their solution using this technology.
Visualizing a BIM model directly on a construction site in real time, the platform allows to significantly simplify the process of identifying violations and promptly carry out a plan-fact analysis. The solution serves as an efficient tool for maintaining construction process at all stages — from design to liquidation of a building.
Today the company cooperates with such key software providers as Group of Companies IRISOFT, LANIT-Integration, Autodesk, Softline. In the short run, it is planned to develop the network of partnerships.
On behalf of the team, we express our gratitude to the organizers of Investor Day for the opportunity to try our hands, compete for the project financing, as well as communicating with the representatives of top private and public funds, and business angels from around the world.
