Inspired by the visit of facebook mogul Zuckerberg and his televised broadcasts, more than 300 of Russia's brightest young innovators and entrepreneurs rushed to submit compelling applications in order to be considered as one of the 50 Russian representatives to sit alongside 50 of their international counterparts at the 'Open Innovations Forum' to be held from the 30th October to 2nd November 2012. The forum is set to be a once in a lifetime event for many of the world's aspiring individuals with a range of golden opportunities for candidates to hear from globally recognised successes such as Richard Branson, who is due to deliver a speech on entrepreneurship. The candidates are not only due to benefit from an opportunity to learn from and network with some of the world's most successful business minds, but the majority of costs are being covered by the hosts.

Joint hosted by the Moscow Mayors Office, Rusnano, Russian Venture Company, Skolkovo, FASIE and VEB the event is being co-ordinated by 'Synergy Innovations Venture Fund' who are the coordinators of the international youth section.
