Collaboration between startups and corporations in many countries is already quite a familiar model of business development. But in Russia it is only taking root. What goals can be in such a partnership, and what does each of the parties get from it? Evgeniya Barchenko, executive director of GoTech Innovation shares her views.More
“This is the 4th set of startups in the year of the Open Innovation program. This time we were looking for startups in Kaspersky’s main specialization – CyberSecurity. But we had a narrow request from business – a focus on cybersecurity solutions for SMB (small and medium-sized businesses) to protect cloud applications and the network. As a result, with the support of scouts, we managed to collect an impressive funnel of startups and select truly deep-tech startups from various countries”, – commented Andrey Nikonov, Startup Engagement Manager.
On September 30th an online Demo Day of Kaspersky Open Innovation Program «Cyber Security for SMB» took place. At the Demo Day all 12 finalists of the selection successfully presented their projects to the experts of Kaspersky.
