Startup Tour participants see innovations at St. Petersburg

The Startup Tour participants enjoyed seeing innovations for a cow pregnancy test, a wind generator, and an “Internet of Vegetables” at its recent stop in St. Petersburg, according to a Skolkovo report.

There were several notable innovations at this stage of the tour, a few of which earned places at the pitch contest later this year.

Anna Potapova's cow pregnancy test won in the category of biomedical innovations, Alexander Atrashenko's wind generator to improve energy efficiency was recognized, and first place in the information technology category went to Alexander Borgul.

Sergei Popov earned a first place award for his smart environment innovation, and Ilya Demin earned an additional invitation to the pitch sessions in Moscow for his "Internet of Vegetables" innovation. This creation helps product management and is a play-on-words of “Internet of Things,” a Russian translation.
