About The Competition
HSE University's Institute of Education and «RYBAKOV FUND» with the support of Agency for strategic initiatives hold a Competition of Innovations in Education.
We invite teachers, entrepreneurs, students and all those interested in education to take part in the Competition. The representatives of the Institute of Education and Higher School of Management conduct educational and business expertise of projects, help to develop ideas and prepare the best teams for negotiations with potential partners.
The winner of the Competition receives the travel grant to present his project anywhere in the world.
At the final, the authors of the best projects introduce them to investors and wide audience. Our sponsors and partners annually announce additional nominations for the Competition finalists and within them hand in their prizes, including foreign internships or financial support.
We invite to participate individual developers and small teams of 2-6 people.
Within the Competition we consider startups at their early stage. Regardless of the phase of project's development, each team must show that they have something more than an abstract idea.

The peculiarity of the Competition is that it is also an accelerator. During the summer school we will help your team to elaborate and finalize the project and introduce it to potential investors or partners.
