“More than 100 projects have been financed by the state through grant competitions held by the State Fund for Development of Information Technologies. Favorable conditions have been created for the startuppers, who became residents of the High Tech Park’s Incubation Center. Currently, a number of activities are under way for the development of the existing ecosystem in the country, patenting the ideas turned into business are also an important component of this process,” the Minister said.
 
In his turn, WIPO Director General Francis Gurry said that today in the world patenting startup ideas remains relevant.
