What Market Wants: Tech Sought After by Global Industry Leaders

It is common knowledge that startups should pitch before their potential customers and partners – large industrial companies. We are implementing a new format at Skolkovo – co-pitching of startups and corporations, with majors being the first to pitch! Only those startups that are interested get to then present their technology solutions to the demanding corporate players and their innovations departments. During this session French majors talk about the technologies they are seeking on the Russian market and the cooperation they expect to establish with small technology companies.
