Hello everyone, this is Ilya from GONT! We continue to promote GONT in Russia. This time the project was pitched in Moscow at Skolkovo Technopark at the third Russian-Chinese Forum “Investing in Innovation”.
The forum was full of interesting speakers and even unexpected, I should say, visitors and guests! For example, in addition to representatives of Chinese investment funds, there were representatives of investors from Silicon Valley.
One of the most important meetings was a meeting with Yevgeny Kosolapov, Skolkovo’s representative in China.
Mr. Evgeny Kosolapov serves as Head of Overseas Business Development at I-Free. Mr. Kosolapov joined i-Free in 2005. He headed the AIESEC offices in Russia, Kazakhstan and Belarus from 1998 to 2000. He managed the opening of AIESEC s Chinese office from 2000 to 2002. From 2002 to 2003, he worked at the international development department of the Asia & Pacific Head Office of DHL before transferring to DHL’s CIS and Baltics regional office since 2003. Mr. Kosolapov graduated
Yevgeny highly estimated the GONT project and offered to take part in a roadshow around China, that is organized by Skolkovo itself. We are seriously considering his offer. There are many “investment scammers” in the market who offer pseudo-roadshows. Therefore, if you do not want to be cheated by scammers, pay attention to the offers from Skolkovo. This is cheaper and investors are real.
An unexpected meeting was held with a representative of the scientific community (George Washington University) – Ph.d., Elias G. Carayannis. He was seriously interested in the project and as a scientist, author of many books on business and head of the Business School in Washington.
Elias gave many valuable comments on the product presentation materials. As a result, we continued the meeting in the evening in the Moscow office of GONT. We agreed and really continued a substantive discussion of the technical and marketing side of the project, as well as attracting investors from the United States.
In a different format we have met with the resident company of Skolkovo – company Colorise. We talked about the possibilities of cooperation in the field of BIG-DATA, the advantages of a residence in Skolkovo, grants.
To sum up it was very productive and busy day that will definitely strengthen the marketing of the GONT project.
Thank you for attention! Good luck!
Ph.D. Ilya Timoshin
