On April 17, in Ufa, the Head of Regional Projects of the best accelerator of IT projects in Russia Daria Shubina will talk about when entrepreneurs should seek for venture capital fund and why they should apply to the accelerator of the  Internet Initiatives Development Fund.

It was the President of Russia Vladimir Putin who initiated the creation of the Internet Initiatives Development Fund (IIDF). Through this initiative a venture fund appeared, which for less than a year invested 63 Internet projects, selecting the best among the thousands of applications.

Within three years IIDF expects to create a new generation of online projects — not less than 400 startups.

Among the priorities of the Fund are educational, legislative and infrastructure projects that will contribute to the development of Russia's full-fledged market of small and medium-sized online businesses.

Everyone will be able to learn about how for a few months to turn a startup into a serious business and to increase profits by 20 times. In addition, participants of the meeting will be told why they need the IIDF accelerator and how business gets "acceleration"; when to apply and how to fill in an application. And, of course, success stories of the first graduates of the accelerator will be announced at the meeting.

On April 19 an expert session of Internet Initiatives Development Fund will be held where 15 selected projects will receive expert advice, practical help, as well as recommendations for the development of the project.
