Last year, the club began to play “Business Mafia” and negotiate with partners.
Number of portal users Business Update last year exceeded 75 thousand people, said the head Department of Entrepreneurship and Innovative Development of Moscow Alexey Fursin… The club of young entrepreneurs continued to develop, improve and launch new formats of work.
“For participants of all levels, a video course on the basics of entrepreneurship has been updated. Online consultations with experts in four areas – finance, marketing and PR, legal issues and visual design are also available, ”said Alexey Fursin.
During the year, the club held 23 meetings, including educational seminars for experts and entrepreneurs. More than 550 people attended face-to-face meetings. New entrepreneurs were told how to build a flow of customers from the Internet, establish contact in negotiations and legally pay less taxes. In addition, the lectures discussed the rules for building a personal brand and resolving disputes, the importance of corporate culture, franchising as a scaling tool, bringing a Russian project to global markets, investments, startups and much more.
To exchange experience between businessmen, last year the club introduced new forms of work: the game “Business Mafia” and “Fast Negotiations” adapted to the tasks of entrepreneurs.
The first time in the “Business Mafia” was played in October, and now the tournament is held every month. In the classic version of the famous game, the names of the roles were changed and tasks were introduced. Civilians became businessmen, the mafia became corrupt, the doctor became an investor, and the commissioner became a tax inspector. The task of peaceful businessmen is to save business from bankruptcy and stay on the market. In addition, participants must present themselves and their project, which is already in operation or is just being planned. With each new round, players come up with ideas for business and cooperate with others, depending on their interests.
Another novelty of 2021 is a meeting in the “Quick Negotiations” format, when during the evening visitors have time to briefly communicate with a large number of interlocutors. The first meeting took place on December 27. More than 50 people took part in it. The program included a master class, a networking game, a competition and summing up the results of the year.
The club will continue to host new events in 2022. For them, meetings will be held in the smart talk format – this is an analogue of a master class with elements of foresight, where participants gain additional skills in flexibility of thinking and forecasting. And in the small talk format, they will conduct 40-minute audio programs in different headings.
The Business Update Club was created in the summer of 2020. Its experts help entrepreneurs create and develop projects, improve entrepreneurial skills, use networking and acquire business partners. Club members are divided into four levels depending on knowledge and activity: beginners, creators, masters and gurus. Everyone can go from a beginner to a guru by studying educational materials, attending online courses and online consultations, completing assignments.
