RVC and representatives of Roskosmos noted that the creation of a venture Fund will also help to ensure effective integration with the areas and projects of the National technology initiative.
"We need to allow ambitious teams, both already taken place, and only formed to Express themselves, to attract the necessary funding and participate in the development of technologies for the development and practical use of space. That's why the new venture Fund that, integrating the possibilities of "Roscosmos", RVC and "VEB Innovations", will be a unique tool for solving these problems", - said Kirill Bulatov.
Establishment of a venture capital Fund shows the willingness of the Russian space industry to work in emerging "new space" when private businesses, University laboratories and companies spinoff large corporations have become full participants in space programs. The RVC representative said that the initiative can be successfully integrated into the production chains of the national space industry at a stage of creation of space-rocket techniques and commercialization possibilities of the orbital groups.

As previously reported by the reporter of ComNews Executive Director of Cluster of space technologies and telecommunications at the SKOLKOVO Foundation Alexei Belyakov, working with startups, small and medium business, as well as with students can be a priority of the Russian space-rocket industry in the future. "While its priority is the institutional reorganization and unification of the existing complex space enterprises under the auspices of the state Corporation "Roscosmos". In addition, the company has no motivation to involve external actors in the creation of new products and the shortage of personnel in the industry only exacerbates this problem," - said the expert of "SKOLKOVO".
He emphasized that attracting start-UPS, small and medium business, students in the innovative development will become a priority in the coming years. According to Alexey Belyakov, until the industry can to a limited extent to include in the supply chain of the products created by startups and small and medium enterprises. Alexei Belyakov said that among the difficulties along the way - the lack of the enterprises included in the Corporation's motivation for involving external actors in the creation of new products, difficulties in attracting new professionals and young people to the industry.
The independent expert, the author of a blog about the development of the space industry and the press Secretary of the company Dauria Aerospace Vitaly Egorov (blogger Green cat) believes that today there is no request by the space industry to innovative start-UPS. "Government funding of the industry is shrinking, so the "Roscosmos" is not interested in dispersing funds to the team. Can be counted on the fingers of one hand the young private companies, which found customers. Most often it is possible the teams, who were able to convince businesses that they need in the development of startups. That is, these young innovators are trying to get their development in the industry, and not responding to her requests," he said.
The agreement was signed under the launched at Technopark SKOLKOVO forum "Open innovations". Deputy Prime Minister Arkady Dvorkovich was preceded by the signing of the agreement in the following words: "Thanks to SKOLKOVO for the opportunity for our major corporations to begin investing in venture projects in start-UPS. Hope for success"

By words g-on Belova, the signing of the document - "a great credibility for us." "The decision of the KLA to become a strategic investor from among the technological state-owned companies seems to us a very important sign for the entire industry. Our partnership is evidence of the arrival on the venture capital market end — users of innovation in large corporations. Investment in venture capital funds is a convenient tool to access the best technology startups in the early stages and allows you to share the risks with other investors," - said Belov.
In turn, Yury Slyusar stated: "For us it is a strategic investment and the beginning of a long journey.

Arkady Dvorkovich: the Fund "SKOLKOVO" - "the harmonious platform for innovation."Photo: Sk.ru
Arkady Dvorkovich also pointed to the role of SKOLKOVO Foundation in this process as a "harmonious platform for innovation": "SKOLKOVO is a place that combines business, scientific education, innovations and their commercialization, he said. - I hope that this Center will continue to be successful, while remaining a platform for gaining synergy from these components. The government of the Russian Federation will support these processes, to support innovation, sustainable growth, continuing to be predictable and hopefully more comfortable partner for the whole society in General and business in particular."
Viktor Vekselberg in his brief greeting noted the role of the co-organizers of the forum Ministry of economic development. The Moscow government, RUSNANO, VEB Innovations, the Bortnik Foundation, RVC, and support of the government of the Russian Federation. "Development institutions today actively contribute to creating the innovative environment that is so necessary to us in Russia, - said the President of the Foundation. The fact that the forum "Open innovations" very confidently asserts, testifies: Russia is a very interesting platform for technological solutions both from the point of view of developers, young scientists, engineers, researchers, and from the point of view of large corporations who are consumers of new and interesting developments. SKOLKOVO is consistent with the idea of this forum and confirms that we can be really competitive in the global world".
Viktor Vekselberg: the forum is addressed to small and medium businesses. Photo: Sk.ru
Despite the importance of participation in "Open innovations" such big corporations like Alibaba Group and Sberbank, "the main target audience are medium and small companies," said Viktor Vekselberg. Addressing them, President of the Foundation said: "It is you guys are facing today, it is you I wish you to find new partners and new ideas, and Open innovations give you that opportunity".
Among those to whom were addressed the words of the President of the Fund SKOLKOVO resident DRD. The company creates unique tests for early detection of stroke and the effects of traumatic brain injuries, including the lightest, and therefore most difficult to detect. CEO of DRD Andrzej Zhimbiev told Sk.ru that the company has closed the first stage of the grant of the SKOLKOVO Foundation, and its results made the creation of four prototypes. This is a test for ischemic stroke for the "emergency" test to assess the risk of chronic ischemia for clinical examination, test for assessment of acute concussion of the brain and lungs traumatic brain injury and test for assessment of post-traumatic epilepsy. "The next step for us is to optimize these tests and bringing them to the serial of the product - says Andrzej of Zhimbiev. And after that we begin large-scale clinical trials in Russia. There are also plans to conduct clinical trials in Havana together with the Cuban Institute of neurology and neurosurgery for later release into the Latin American market. We are also looking for partners in China, Japan, India and South Korea, are in these countries in active negotiations. The model is simple: we need a partner who received a exclusive product on the market, ready to pay the cost of conducting clinical trials and registration we are interested in the country."

"Transform or die"
The forum also gives the opportunity to take part in discussions about the future of the business, including business the old industries. The theme of the first plenary discussion (moderated by the Finnish venture investor, Advisor to the President of SKOLKOVO Foundation Pekka Viljakainen) was formulated quite provocative: "Transform or die."
"Four years ago I was on this forum, and we said then that technology will be able to get people to change from their cars into taxis," - said the founder of the company Dave Gett hostel. - The taxi service was in fact only a concept. Today it is a reality. Perhaps the biggest transformation of transport in the last hundred years. People passing in our day, billions of kilometers in cars they don't own. Are the consequences of this transformation for the transportation industry – the largest industry in the world after real estate? This raises the question of the consequences of innovation: the question is on which side door you are. For us innovation is the birth of a new model, a new business. But what does this mean for those companies that were great yesterday, but who will have to leave because they do not fit into the transformation? The main trend in Russia and in the world is the realization that technology is not just helping you better do what you already do; the question is, what is the fundamental impact of technology on business," he said.
Gettaxi operates in a hundred cities, four countries, including Russia; the average age of one and a half thousand employees is 31 years. All the criteria a company with billions in turnover, which is only six years old, is rather large. But, according to Dave Weißer, that most large companies today are in the risk zone. "The bigger your business, the more chances that you will not be on the market in 10 years. Your size can work against you," says Israeli entrepreneur.
Founder of Gettaxi Dave Karpov: the greatest risk in the process of technological transformation are subjected to a large company. Photo: Sk.ru
Example of how a large Corporation can match the spirit of the time is, in his opinion, Sberbank, which made three breakthrough: they created a fantastically convenient online access to their services; it became standard in remittances and improved its credit system like no other. "This is an example of a company that constantly asks the question: as a business that exists around me can take me out of business? The same applies to other types of businesses. Retail Amazon over the past 10 years has created a value chain for hundreds of billions of dollars. But few people noticed: exactly the same amount decreased capitalization of other similar chain retailers.
Responding to a question from the moderator Pekka Viljakainen of that Gettaxi is planning to do to survive until 2025, Dave weißer noticed that two years ago, when the company was four years old, he realized this business will die if you don't get access to the technologies of unmanned vehicle. Because those who will have access, will provide the same services at 40% cheaper. Awareness of these realities has led to the fact that a shareholder of the company was the Volkswagen, thanks to which it will be able to use drones for their taxi, including in Russia. "We do not recognize this risk, we would have walked away from business - sums up the morning. But the same risks will arise in the future."
In this sense, in his view, technology creates not only opportunities but also threats for those who do not have time to transform. He cited the example of the automotive industry and transport with the advent of such businesses as Gett. It is known that the owner of the car in a large city uses it only 4% of the time, the rest of the time the machine is idle. New services increase the efficiency of car use by up to 40%. This means, among other things, that the demand for new cars is reduced tenfold. What will happen to the automakers and related industries?
Almanac "Digital economy"
The forum is gaining momentum. Key promises to be the second day in the Central session of the "Open innovations" will take part, among other headliners, the head of Alibaba Group Jack MA, Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev and the Prime Minister of Luxembourg, Xavier Betel.
"The program "Open innovation" (which is 785 speakers, 180 sessions) are so saturated that the attempt to identify the most interesting elements is unlikely to be effective, - said in an interview Sk.ru senior Vice President of Fund "SKOLKOVO" Alexander Chernov. - Of course, we will have a very interesting and important – as the depth of the topic and the level of the participating experts - plenary session with the participation of Dmitry Medvedev. Assume there will be a large and substantial discussion on the dynamic and still love this anime and the theme of digitalization and related economic changes in the world. However, I absolutely do not rule out that as interesting and rich will be more tracks of the program.

Thick and promises to be an interesting session "the Digital economy. The master plan of the new electrification" (among its members the assistant to the President Andrey Belousov, Sergey Gorkov, Chairman of Vnesheconombank, Boris Dobrodeyev, General Director Мail.ru Group, Jean-Pascal Tricoire, CEO of Schneider Electric, and others – approx Sk.ru). The opportunity to hear from and ask questions to these people is expensive.
One of the landmark events of "Open innovation" for me was the way prepared for the forum by the Fund "SKOLKOVO" almanac "Digital economy". The fact that we have collected under one cover so differently-minded, but very interesting authors – the obvious success of the forum. I am sure that the collection will be in demand for a long time and after the forum as an example of the diversity of views on very different areas. And here, right, and robotics, and the blockchain, and cryptocurrency. This is a very high-quality selection of interesting and unusual opinions on the topic of the digital economy".
In the first hours of "Open innovation" was signed several agreements with participation of the Fund "SKOLKOVO". Among them was the agreement to launch the joint programme "SKOLKOVO" and SAP CIS (provides support to startups that launched services on a cloud platform SAP Cloud Platform); agreement on cooperation between the SKOLKOVO Fund and accelerator Idea Foundry (thanks to him "SKOLKOVO" residents will have access to an extensive network of partnerships accelerator in the U.S. Pittsburgh), as well as to strengthen collaboration on projects between the Fund "SKOLKOVO" X5 RetailGroup.

The seminar will be conducted in order to fully inform the business community about the measures and programs of state support of manufacturing industries. The meeting will be presented reports and presentations on funding opportunities and support projects within the framework programs of the industry development Fund of the Russian Federation terms and procedure for the selection of projects for financing by the industrial development Fund of the Kaliningrad region, ensuring the return of the Fund loans.

The event starts at 10.00 in the conference hall of the Kaliningrad chamber of Commerce and industry (Vatutina str, 20A). To announce your participation and to register for the seminar by phone 674-597 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
Investment Fund PSB and "SUPPORT of RUSSIA" adopted a new concept of development, according to which priority funding is given to SMEs operating in industrial, manufacturing and agricultural sector.
The Fund size was increased from 300 to 500 million rubles. This allows you to Finance production and business projects in more attractive conditions. The maximum limit of investment in such projects is 50 million rubles, which is 5 times higher limit for trade and service sector.
"Apart from increasing the size of the investment associated with capital-intensive industrial projects, the key is changing the terms of the investments. If earlier we gave out funds to companies with a yield below 25%, now to us this condition is not a restriction. We understand that the profitability of the production business is significantly lower than companies in the field of trade and services, – said Alena Sokov, head of the Investment Fund PSB and "SUPPORT of RUSSIA". Along with this, we have kept the design approach for small manufacturing business with the use of the maximum number of state support programmes".
The Fund remains open to young and enterprising entrepreneurs. Support is provided to projects on a separation of business risk, in the presence of the business plan, strategy fold increase in business volumes as well as the potential withdrawal of the company to mid-market and large businesses.
"Investment Fund for 3.5 years established itself as an effective tool to support small business. Today much wider problem – to promote development of the manufacturing SME sector in Russia is 5-7%. Such a low proportion is related to the fact that the production is not the business that gives quick economic impact for the investor and for the owner. For example, the return of industrial projects at least 5 years is 2-3 times higher than in trade and services, and its yield is 5-7% vs 15-30% in these areas. In this regard, the production of small businesses in Russia need "long money", which can provide the Foundation," said Alexander Chereskin, Senior Vice President-head of small and medium business PSB.
Thus, the focus of the new strategy of the Fund has shifted to industry, playing a key role in the formation of gross national product. In this regard, the experts of the Fund will consider the business logic of project funding, to advise entrepreneurs on the use and implementation of SME support institutions, to structure the project with the use of these programs and to advise the entrepreneurs after the investment in their business.
"Investment Fund PSB and "SUPPORT of RUSSIA" as the Institute of financial and mentoring support for small businesses is a very important Federal project that provides a good opportunity for development, scaling and business development projects. I am confident that the Fund will give a powerful impetus to exit the production business to a new, more serious level, which would be impossible without external support," said Andrew Shubin, Executive Director of the Russian public organization of small and medium entrepreneurship "OPORA RUSSIA".
Finance Investment Fund to entrepreneurs-residents of the Russian Federation of SMEs. There are limitations – the developers know-how, representatives of the gambling industry, entrepreneurs engaged in the production and sale of minerals, production of excisable goods, the participants of agreements on section of production, representatives of credit, insurance institutions and pawnshops, investment and nongovernmental pension funds, as well as participants of the securities market are unable to receive investments from the Fund.

"The goal of the program "UMNIK" is to support young scientists aiming to realize scientific-technical and innovation activities. Thus, we support young people who want to create something of their own and contribute to the rapid development of scientific and technological progress. All our projects involve implementation over a period of two years. This grant is allocated on the phased work. The result may be not only completed the project, but also the creation of small innovative enterprises, transition to work in a big company or teaching activities", - said the head of representation of Fund of assistance to innovation in the Sverdlovsk region Sergey Meisel.

Many of them have set up small innovative enterprises and received a patent for their inventions.
"In competition I was involved with a project of applied research related to x-ray equipment. Funding from the Foundation greatly advance the work ahead and allowed to reach the stage of creating prototypes. We have developed a new kind of x-ray tubes, which we then went to the market. The skills acquired during participation in the program, and helped me in further work, because now we have a lot to communicate with representatives of government, business and scientists, to find common interests for all. Choosing to participate in the "Nerd" should realize that the competition they need to go not just as scientists, but as scholars with a clear and understandable view of how their invention will work in a particular area of the economy", - said CEO of Technopark of high technologies of Sverdlovsk region, the winner of the contest "UMNIK" 2008 Denis Buffoons.
Among the best projects of last year - an unmanned aerial vehicle for the treatment of agricultural plants, formulation phytomineral feeding for effective correction of metabolic processes in small animals, a radar imaging system in road conditions, a device for early diagnosis of malignant tumors of the skin.
"The contest "UMNIK" is a good start and support for students. I was interested in the topic of unmanned aerial technology. Today it is actively introduced, but little used in agriculture, meanwhile, in the agricultural sector using drones can solve a lot of problems. I proposed a project to develop an unmanned aircraft for spraying plants and won a grant last year. Now on received from the Fund begins to realize his idea. I'm sure my development will be in demand from farmers", - said the student of 3rd course of the faculty of transport and technological machines and service Usau, the winner of the contest "UMNIK" 2016 Vasily Kuznetsov.

As it became known"", the business Ombudsman Boris Titov in the letter to the head of the FTS Mikhail Mishustin reported on the problems incurred in the transfer of administration of insurance contributions from the Pension Fund and tax service. With reference to entrepreneurs in the letter it is reported that in many cases (the Ombudsman has two dozen references to him on this occasion) the data on the debt on premiums was invalid, because of what the companies had in fact not existing debt. In FNS and the Pension Fund claim that has accepted the procedure for correcting information presented.

As a result, writes the Ombudsman, the tax office accepted the decision on suspension of operations under accounts of taxpayers and forced the withdrawal of funds. Mr. Titov confirms that FTS is not entitled itself to correct the received data. So entrepreneurs, bringing them from the PFR paper documents with proof of his "innocence," nothing.
The scale of the problem is difficult to assess.

The way out Boris Titov, sees the introduction of the transitional period is to give the tax authorities before 1 July 2018 the ability to accept paper documents confirming payment of contributions and to correct the data. Enforcement in respect of debts on insurance premiums with the proposed produce.

The Fund said that give all policyholders a statement of their accounts about the debt or about its absence and re-directed in FNS these data in electronic form.
