RVC, in partnership with PwC, launched the Export Accelerator of the National Technology Initiative (NTI). The program is aimed at developing the export of Russian technology companies that operate in the NTI markets.
The first set of the accelerator is aimed at companies developing promising, globally-oriented products in the field of artificial intelligence, big data and the Internet of Things. Applicants must demonstrate sustainable business development and focus on sales in Asian markets.
All companies that have submitted applications to the accelerator will be able to carry out a detailed assessment of their export potential with the help of specialized Russian and foreign experts; they will receive practical recommendations for finalizing their product and further steps to be made to enter Asian markets.
Based on an expert assessment, the most promising companies will be invited to become members of the NTI Export Accelerator. They will be able to explore existing business opportunities in the selected region, get individual advice from relevant foreign experts, form a pool of potential partners and customers in the target market.
The Accelerator's participants will also be offered a comprehensive set of tools for entering international markets from development institutions that support foreign economic activity.
The NTI Export Accelerator program starts in November 2018. Accepting of applications from companies will last until September 30, 2018.
The National Technology Initiative (NTI) is a long-term comprehensive program to create conditions for ensuring the leadership of Russian companies in new high-tech markets that will determine the structure of the global economy in the next 15-20 years. The design office of NTI is RVC.
