Educational program of “BIT Siberia” has started with the lecture on the bases of innovation-driven business


“Innovation enterprise: attracting investment” was the theme of the first lecture within the framework of the educational program of the “Business of Innovative Technologies in Siberia 2009” competition. The lecture was held in the Student Business Incubator “Druzhba”.

“Innovation enterprise: attracting investment” was the theme of the first lecture within the framework of the educational program of the “Business of Innovative Technologies in Siberia 2009” competition. The lecture was held in the Student Business Incubator “Druzhba”. The aim of the educational program is to teach young innovators how to transform an idea into business.

However, the question “Where should one find money for his/her innovation?” was not given a straightforward answer. As Nikolay Badulin, a venture investor and the author of the lecture, said, the seminar is supposed to not explain what to do, but to help its participants understand it themselves.

As Nikolay has explained, an idea on its own costs less than nothing. To achieve success, a developer has to understand to what market segments his/her development falls and who its potential consumer is. “It is the basis which every innovator must be aware of”, - Nikolay Badulin said.

A venture investor is unlikely to take interest in a project which requires big investments for a long period of time. That is why it’s so important for an innovator to make it clear for whom his/her project or technology will work. The other paramount factor is his/her team line-up. The lecturer has quoted the results of a polling held among American businessmen, in saying that the majority of them has stated that the main ingredient of success of a company is the people who work in it. All the rest: what, where and how is produced – is secondary. For this reason teams made up of idea developers and economists, who can draw a business-project out of the idea, are the key factor to help a company succeed.

“BIT” first emerged in America as an attempt to “reconcile” developers of MIT (Massachusetts Institute of Technology) and economists of Harvard. They were united into teams which proved capable of turning an innovative development into a form of an actual business-project. The “reconciliation” has turned out so successful that the “MIT 100K” competition has gone beyond the USA and reached Russia.

Tomsk is holding “BIT Siberia” for the second time.
