Presentation of Start-up programs was organized in Yerevan with the participation of entrepreneurs from China, India, Vietnam and Iran.
The event was organized by Canada’s York Entrepreneurship Development Institute and Yerevan branch of Russia’s Plechanov University of Economics.
“I hope this is an occasion not only to serve the knowledge received during the event in the favor of the people and the country but to work out future plans with joint programs,” Armenia’s economy minister Tigran Khachatryan said.
He stressed that it is important for the program to succeed in Armenia.
“If it has succeeded in Canada it may succeed in Armenia as well and as Canada manages to combine the best minds of the world in Armenia as well we may built such platform,” the minister said.
Director of Yerevan branch of Russian Plechanov University of Economics Tamara Vardanyan said the event was initially planned to be conducted in Moscow but after the developments in Armenia the chairman of the YEDI Marat Ressin decided to move it to Armenia to express his support to the developments taking place in the country.
“This program gives an exclusive opportunity to the authors of new ideas, new programs for them to get tools to bring them to life,” she said.
