We can see that with every new stage of training, the projects presented by the teams are getting more mature and ambitious. This shows that the members of each team make every effort to ensure its well-coordinated, efficient teamwork.

Now, the key task of the SKOLKOVO Business School is to join efforts with the Single-Industry Town Development Foundation to monitor and support the teams in the implementation of their projects. The Business School is going to provide expert support to the teams in further development of the proposed initiatives and putting them into practice."
