Annually the Fair brings together the managers of major investment institutions, representatives of venture capital and private equity funds, banks, consulting firms, business-angels, owners and managers of innovative high-tech small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs), journalists, politicians from Russia, Europe, United States and other countries.

To date, more then 15 Russian Venture Fairs have been conducted – in Saint Petersburg, Moscow, Perm, Rostov-on-Don, Novosibirsk and Kazan.

Within the business program framework, in the interactive discussions and round tables format, the participants share their practical experience at the PE&VC sphere, discuss common problems and vital issues, and determine efficient development strategies for their companies. Participation in the discussions allows finding new partners and clients and laying the foundation of future business development.

A distinguishing feature of the Fair events is their “club” character which gives a unique opportunity to build effective business network among the main participants of the investment process – innovative companies and the investors seeking promising projects to invest in.
