Today, December 17, Russia Beyond the Headlines, the international project of "Rossiyskaya Gazeta" will present an updated TOP-50 list of Russia’s most promising startup projects according to Russian Startup Rating (RSR).
A full list of participants of the rating can be found on RBTH’s website. Each listing included a brief description of all the companies and their contacts. As the experience of previous editions of the rating has shown, the list is useful for startups, which are able to express themselves in the international arena, and investors, for whom the TOP-50 rating is a convenient base to find projects with investment potential.
Winners of the rating were announced on Dec. 9 at the TechCrunch Moscow 2013 conference. The conference is dedicated to startups, new trends and hot news from the field of technology.
Organizers of RSR, GreenfieldProject and Digital October Center, are paying special attention to young businesses in the high-tech field, so the TOP-50 list includes 25 projects from high-tech, biotech and medicine, as well as 25 startups in IT and Internet. This differentiates the current rating from the previous ones with a focus on the high-tech breakthrough developments.
The rating includes such projects as DiaPark, a system of early detection of Parkinson's disease; Onkoscreening, a detection technique of various oncology diseases in early stages; RRT Global, a technology that allows the reduction of the cost of gasoline Euro-5 by several times; and Oriense, a global system for people with vision disabilities and many others.
"Within six months since the release of the previous TOP-50, we significantly improved the assessment methodology," said Renat Garipov, the general director of GreenfieldProject.
"In this issue, we decided to rely on high-tech startups, which are still neglected by venture capital investors. We hope that the rating will be a good guide for professional market participants and readers abroad. We have issued the rating for one and half years in six languages, and we see that this information is in great demand among foreigners," said Dan Pototsky, the executive editor of special projects with RBTH.
Russian Startup Rating is a infrastructure project focused at developing a network of technological entrepreneurship in Russia. Its major task is to identify and demonstrate promising Russian startups and developments for specialized and non-specialized Russian and foreign investors.
Russian Startup Rating is created by GreenfieldProject and the Digital October Center with the strategic partnership of RVC, JSC. PwC provides expert support and assistance in the development of the rating methodology. Industry partners are the Center for Commercialization of Innovations, and MedStart, the Association of Medical Startups.
