"We are ready to stimulate the development of new breakthrough technologies and innovative approaches that are necessary for Primorsky Krai. The regional government possesses a lot of products under preferential treatment, so we are open to new projects and ready to provide assistance in their implementation", - said Vera Shcherbina, Chairperson of the Primorsky Krai Government.
Since the launch of the program, more than 100 applications from regional companies and startups, including 27 applications from Russky Technopark residents and FEFU project teams, were submitted. Among the submitted applications are projects which participated in RU TechPark Student Online Accelerator 2020 Demo Day such as "Give me gift" service for gift selection, "Prosto AI" sales promotion technology as well as Russky Technopark resident companies Tomoru and Pentakan.
The most promising ideas will be presented by the participants to the expert panel at the final stage of the grant competition in the end of August 2020. As a result, the "Primorsky Start" program will provide a total of 20 million rubles (about 280,000 US dollars) to regional high-tech companies, giving each of the 10 winners up to 2 million rubles (about 28,000 US dollars).
