Recall that the TechUspech rating is a tool for searching, monitoring and promoting promising fast-growing technology companies that have high leadership potential both in the Russian and global markets. The rating has been carried out by RVC JSC together with partners since 2012. Since 2016, the rating has also been the basis for the search and selection of Russian technology companies for participation in the priority project of the Ministry of Economic Development of Russia “Support for Private High-Tech Leading Companies” (“National Champions”).
Participants in this project receive a "green wave" when applying for state support. In 2016 - 2018, 84 companies were already selected from the rating base to participate in the National Champions project. In 2019, it is planned to additionally select 30 companies in the “National Champions” project.
Also, a feature of the 2019 rating was its focus on identifying fast-growing technology companies that are promising in the context of new markets of the National Technology Initiative (STI) and their projects that can be further supported through STI tools and project partners.
