Noosphere was invited to talk about the culture that they have established to develop start-ups. Co-Founder of Noosphere Michael Ryabokon talked about world trends in start-up industry.
“Entrepreneurs are often idealist dreamers and it is hard for them to make clear roadmaps and to manage risks. First of all, your startup should be a painkiller, not a vitamin. It is better have a clear roadmap at the beginning,” – said Michael Ryabokon.
As a part of the event, Pioneers organizers held a start-up competition, where Ryabokon also served as one of the judges. The Araned projects that has won several competitions so far has become the winners of Pioneers Kyiv. The team hopes to develop interactive 3-D models for medical education.
