We talk to startups and investors, you get the value.

MTS is accepting applications until May 25 for the international competition SOCIAL IDEA 2021. Social projects with an IT component, either at the idea stage or as a finished product, are welcome to take part. The winners will be awarded up to ₽1.5M for implementation, as well as the opportunity to launch a pilot project within the MTS ecosystem. Two nominations have been announced for 2021 — ecology and inclusion.

In turn, the HSE Business Incubator launched the HSE Inc. modular accelerator. The format of three-week short thematic modules allows for more intensive work on project weaknesses. The modules are independent of each other and can be used to study the target audience, test hypotheses, calculate the financial model and unit economics, and much more. It is possible to take one module, several or all at once.

Each participating startup is pre-diagnosed and goes through individual work with trackers and mentors. The accelerator welcomes projects at Pre-seed stage, with MVPs and first sales. If there are no sales, but there are unique technologies, the application will also be considered. The main fields are EdTech, AdTech, Entertainment, New Media, and others. Details can be found on the program website.
