On October 29, the corporate accelerator GenerationS held the event #GENSTalks in Kazan which is a powerful investment "pumping" for startups in the field of transport.
In addition to the speeches of the leading speakers of the transport sector, the business event program included a pitch session of promising technological projects that can be developed tomorrow in partnership with the largest transport, engineering and logistics companies in the world.
Business Platform Director Aisylu Garipova took part in #GENSTalks as an expert. She assessed the financial and investment potentials of the projects submitted for the competition.
The selection of participants for the pitch session was conducted among startups whose solutions are applicable for the development of transport infrastructure, creation and maintenance of unmanned vehicles, ensuring safety, environmental friendliness and energy efficiency in transport, increasing automation and digitalization of production processes, etc.
The authors of the projects that didn’t pass the selection, had the opportunity to become listeners of #GENSTalks, learn a lot of useful things for themselves and "tighten" presentation skills to participate in other investment events.
"We give feedback to the project authors. We notice what the project has been finalized, and that the author needs to add. Our task is to give an expert opinion on how much the project is ready for people to consider it for investment. The purpose of our participation in such events is to promote our platform, you can cooperate with us, and we have a base of investors who are in search of innovative technological projects. We hold our pitch sessions, work at the request of investors" - Aisylu Garipova summed up.
