On June 6th 2015 experts from the Internet Initiatives Development Fund (IIDF) staged a summer seminar for the Dagestani startup community. Those attending were able to hear in detail about projects that have attracted investment from the largest sources of such funding in Russia and also to explain their ideas and have them evaluated by experts.
The experts from IIDF were Alexander Yeremeev (startup accelerator tracker at IIDF) and Daria Shubina (head of IIDF regional projects) who outlined the necessary steps that turn an idea or project into a functioning business.
The seminar moderators conducted a business game that developed the practical skills needed to expand a business. The participants in the startup marathon presented their projects and received valuable feedback from the experts.
