On March 29th at Digital October Center a global meeting of the entrepreneurial and business elite took place. Young and successful entrepreneurs, investors, businessmen, and the directors of leading start-ups discussed their joint plans, development opportunities, new projects, and perspectives on the entrance of Russian start-ups in global markets.

John Harthorne, the event’s featured lecturer, is an expert in the globalization of entrepreneurial systems. Having believed in himself, he created the world’s leading organization that brings a variety of professionals and young entrepreneurs together. In 2011 President Obama granted Mass Challenge the status of one of the best organizations in the country that supports the growth of enterprise. The proof lies in this: Mass Challenge holds the world record for the number of launchs and market capitalization of start-ups. Its start-ups attract more that $100 million and create over 500 new jobs every year.
