Sverdlovsk fund opens second IT Accelerator

According to a recent announcement, the Sverdlovsk Regional Entrepreneurship Support Fund has opened its second round of a special Information Technology Accelerator program at Ural Federal University.

This special program helps inventors with their projects. Experts attend the event to tutor aspiring professionals on how to develop a prototype, how to make their first sale and how to determine the weaknesses and developments of a specific project. Entrepreneurs are welcome whether they have been unable to find a client, have not made their first sale, or only have an idea or outline for a working product.

“We provide a space for collaboration on the project, we invite experts and organize workshops, and we help find potential customers,” Accelerator program head Catherine Edges said. "Most importantly for those beginning tech projects, we focus on technologies for business and related projects.”

A regional development institution established in 2002 by the Sverdlovsk Region government, the fund offers financial support for the development of small and medium-sized businesses.
