Final elimination round for REF business program scholars
On April 7th the Russian Economic Fund, supported and hosted by the Digital October center held the third and final elimination round to determine who will become its first scholars.
Candidates were required to take part in a business game and pass an interview with the REF instructors: Oscar Hartmann (founder of KupiVip and REF director), Jasur Jumaev (founder of Kupikupon) and other successful businessmen.
The REF plans to find up to one hundred young men and women every year who are currently studying and plan to become entrepreneurs, with the purpose of helping them develop their potential. The final winners can count on a monthly 8000 ruble stipend, internships in well-known companies and help from mentors in setting up their own projects.
