Networking is an essential element of Youth Business Russia, as a comprehensive entrepreneurs support programme. Whatever is the variety and accessibility of useful information for entrepreneurs in public domain, nothing can replace human interaction between like-minded people following the similar paths and being quick at understanding each other.
For as long as 12 years, YBR has been developing and supporting networking at both regional and interregional levels and promotes international cooperation. YBR first priority is to build online communication platform for youth entrepreneurs, alumni and mentors of other programmes implemented in 56 countries of the world united by Youth Business International.
