Thus, over the past year, the IEC launched seven programs for entrepreneurs with co-financing of up to 90 percent, some of them were available free of charge. At the same time, the number of companies participating in accelerators has exceeded 200, which is three times more than in previous years,” said the head of the Department of Entrepreneurship and Innovative Development of the City of Moscow
