How does one become the leader of an innovative startup success? This question was answered during the National Day of the Russian Federation at the World EXPO 2020 in Dubai, where participants from different countries attended presentations of Russian projects with international potential. One such project that is particularly special is Business Priority, an innovative business growth platform created by the Roscongress Foundation.


Business Priority identifies and positions Russian startups so that they can become attractive to the market, major companies, development institutions, and governments and start exporting to foreign markets. The Business Priority portfolio includes projects from FoodTech, AgroTech, PetTech, and other industries.


This unique approach is based on developing a growth strategy not only for the product itself, but also for the founder and key team members. They are the individuals who are changing the world for the better.


The Status Priority educational programme was showcased to the participants and guests of Expo 2020 Dubai during the presentation. The programme’s goal is the professional and personal development of leaders and the practical implementation of the ideology of lifelong learning and self-improvement.


Business Priority Founder and CEO Marianna Skragan notes: “Working with hundreds of startups, we have identified a simple pattern: the chance of success is much higher for projects that have a strong leader. For this reason, we have created Status Priority, a development and personal growth programme for the founders and managers of innovative projects.”


This education provides participants with a specific, valuable, and tailored result that is consistent with their personal, business, and macro goals. The Status Priority format involves mentoring by reputable mentors, business games, and a presence at major congresses.


“A leader grows, and his/her company grows as well. We are convinced that creating new professional, social, and personal opportunities for talented and ambitious people is key to the subsequent successful growth of a startup,” noted Business Priority experts Maria Maryasova and Elvira Vilkhovaya, who presented the project at the Expo.


More information about the growth opportunities provided by Business Priority and the Status Priority educational programme will be available at special events of the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum 2022.
