MOSCOW, January 15 - RIA News . Developing start-ups in the Russian Federation is possible through the “digital footprint” and “pumping” of universities, as well as managing demand from corporations, so you can stop the process of moving these projects abroad, said the special presidential envoy for digital and technological development, director of direction " Young professionals "Agency for Strategic Initiatives (ASI) Dmitry Peskov.
According to him, the state does not know how many startups are in the country, who works for them, who their investors are, where they place their production and what critical technologists are used by this particular startup. As a result, startups grow to a certain level and go abroad.
"It is impossible to fight this prohibitively in any way, but it is necessary to create conditions under which startups could grow in Russia and sell their goods on global markets. We would like to propose a number of solutions that would solve this problem. The first task is to know what a startup is and what kind of people it is, that is, learn how to assemble a “digital footprint.” And the first task facing the platform is to collect this digital footprint, ”he said, speaking at a meeting of the ASI supervisory board.
The second solution is to develop universities in the Russian Federation, since the number of start-ups in the country is very small. “We have a very low offer. Startups are just very few, they are incredibly small. You know how to joke on the market - German Oskarovich has already bought everyone alive (Gref, head of Sberbank - Ed.). When people talk about frames for the digital economy, the same "This means that we can no longer focus only on 10-15 leading universities. We need to go deep, we need to reach strong, motivated students in each region," he said.
The special representative of the president, together with the Ministry of Higher Education and Science, proposed to “pump out” a team of all the leading regional universities in SkolTech. “That is, conditionally, 100 universities, from 21st to 121st place, of supporting universities, regional, technical, including including mechanisms for their financial incentives to the results of these educational programs and retraining,” he said. The "intensive" program will involve work with approximately 1.5 thousand managers for two weeks, 18-20 hours a day.
The third solution is demand management. It is planned to create interest in start-ups from large corporations. According to ASI, the activity of corporations is "infinitely low," for example, 18 out of 124 large organizations have venture funds. "Digital technologies - they after all reduce the total market volume. That is, digital monopolies are being formed, let's speak frankly. And the place for small ones is narrowing. In this sense, we need to generate demand, but the only way to generate demand is to work with our large technological state corporations and not only state corporations ", - he concluded.
ccording to a REGNUM correspondent on January 14, this was announced during the meeting of the State Duma budget committee by its head Andrei Makarov (United Russia).
"The first results (of the experiment) exceed all the most daring expectations, " said Makarov. According to him, the number of citizens who voluntarily registered as self-employed increased significantly in 2019.
“On the first working day of the new 2019, people registered almost twice as many as in the previous two years,” noted Makarov.
However, he stressed that only the Federal Tax Service can announce the official figures and the results of the experiment.
