Study of the Innovative Business Environment in the Kaluga Region
Business, Startups, Marketing
Business development is one of the urgent topics of research in economics, management and business administration. Moreover, the results of such research are useful not only for science and scientists, but also for those creating real businesses.

Have you ever thought that launching a start-up and its further development depends on the environment in which the new business is grown? The Kaluga region is unique, as it provides very preferable conditions for an innovative business to grow: financial and consulting support, preferential conditions, surety, and even support in the development of ideas and products.
During our project work we will study different forms of innovative business in the Kaluga region, products and services, development paths, opportunities and barriers due to government regulation. Together we will analyze the business environment of the Kaluga region, understand the basic approaches to business modeling, create interview guides, conduct video interviews with the key players of the market and learn from the entrepreneurs how to build successful business models and develop products. As a result, a business report will be created.

This project is a perfect opportunity to immerse into the topic of entrepreneurship and startups on a truly scientific level and understand the essentials of business development.

If you are sociable, want to upgrade your analytical and creative skills, eager to develop in business, management and economics, this project is for you. We are looking forward to seeing you in our team.
