The BRICS Business Incubator International Acceleration Program has scheduled its full-time component to be held in Omsk from August 20th to August 24th, 2023. This program, organized by the Government of the Omsk Region, Omsk State Technical University, and ANO “Leaders of International Cooperation,” will bring together more than 100 entrepreneurs, investors, and business association representatives from BRICS and the Central Asian region. The main objective of the program is to create a favorable environment for business communities to collaborate and grow collectively. While financial support is important, the focus is on cooperation, mentoring, and fostering mutual growth.
Sharmishtha Ghosh, Founder MD of INTANDEM GLOBAL CONSULTING PVT. LTD. and a member of the BRICS CCI Governing Body, emphasized the significance of such forums in enabling strong relationships between business communities. Sharmishtha herself is among the program’s winners, along with 25 other entrepreneurs from the five BRICS nations.
Dmitriy Mayevsky, Rector of OmSTU, commented on the benefits of hosting the business incubator in Omsk at the technical university.

The participants of the program will have the opportunity to present their projects to investors from large investment organizations and private funds in various sectors such as innovation, technology, IT infrastructure, logistics, consulting, e-commerce, education, healthcare, food industry, hospitality, and more. Rim Khasanov, an expert of the BRICS Business Incubator and President of the ANO “Eurasian Investment Agency,” described the program as a crucial support system for entrepreneurs seeking international expansion.

A significant aspect of the 2023 business incubator is the collaboration with large investment organizations and private funds from BRICS countries, which will provide financing for at least 70% of the participants’ projects. The event expects numerous cooperation agreements and investment contracts to be signed, strengthening relationships between the BRICS business communities.
