Within the framework of the updated investment strategy, RVC will help NTI projects to integrate in the venture funds investment programs including those created with participation of RVC capital. The first step in this direction was presentation of NTI projects to venture investors, in which 15 NTI projects participated, as well as investment managers of RVC Infrafund, Russian-Belorussian fund of the venture investments, RBV Capital, North Energy Ventures, DaVinci Pre-IPO Fund and some other private funds. RVC press-release received by the editor's office reports about this.

Neurochat, Neurobarometer, Semiotik, Live breath, Geoscan, Antionko, Parkomatica teams presented their projects to the investors. If investors liked their projects, they will be included in the financial program.

"We carry out active work to synchronize our venture and acceleration instruments with the purposes and tasks of the National Technology Initiative. As a result, companies at the NTI market will get access to the complete set of the State support services, both financial and non-financial. Funds with RVC capital participation have all enough expertise and are able to help young technological companies in relation to business scaling and launch on the global market", Aleksandr Povalko, RVC CEO noticed.

Such presentations format is very convenient for both parties, Aleksey Basov, investment director remarks.

Investors are already interested by some presentations.

"Today we picked out for ourselves several interesting projects we are going to schedule additional meetings with and consider investment opportunity", Aleksey Kanunnikov, director of RVC Infrafund investment direction, managing partner of the Russian-Belorussian venture investment fund commented.
