IFTI participated in the 5-th Moscow International Congress “Biotechnology: state-of-the-art and future development” (March 17 Moscow). IFTI’s presentation delivered in the section “Finances, Investment, and Innovations” expressed the main conclusion resulted from the years of IFTI’s practical experience: “The absence in Russia of the structures that can raise innovations from the scientific idea to the industrial implementation and the absence of the seed funds financing this activity drastically impede growth of high-tech start-up companies. Without those obligatory elements of the national innovative system, development of its separated fragments (like venture capital funds, technical parks, business incubators, and so on) cannot significantly increase the overall innovative activity in this country.”




“The matter with the inefficient performance of the Russian Venture Company in 2007-2008 is that there is no innovation system in Russia. Despite the fact that based on the federal assistance some parts of the innovative system are created and even launched, the system in whole doesn’t exist. There is no integrated concept and strategy of innovation development, there is no single agency responsible for the program realization and its results. Outside those vital questions any discussion of RVC’s performance is useless.” This opinion was expressed by Natalia A. Yanul, IFTI Director for Development, during the roundtable discussion “Current questions in development of venture and seed capital financing in present-day Russia” (March 12th, 2009). The discussion was organized by the Russian Chamber of Commerce and Industry and by the Committee for informational politics, IT and communications of the State Duma (Russian Parliament).
