The names of the new composition of public representatives of the Agency for Strategic Initiatives (ASI) in the Republic of Karelia have become known.

Among them are two employees of PetrSU – Roman Valerievich Zagidullin, representative of the ASI in the direction of “Youth entrepreneurship”, and Konovalov Alexander Petrovich, representative of the ASI in the areas of “Youth entrepreneurship” and “Tourism”.
When choosing candidates, experience in the relevant field of activity played an important role. Our colleagues regularly conduct trainings on project activities, management, production management and export activities; support young entrepreneurs through various projects. Currently, they are taking part in two large international projects aimed at involving young people in entrepreneurial business – “BUSY – business for youngsters” and “CULTA” (within the framework of the CBC Karelia program).
Public representatives have already become actively involved in promoting ASI’s initiatives in the region: at the end of 2020, they held a number of events that revealed the entrepreneurial potential of students and schoolchildren. Thus, an international school of creative projects was launched and an economic game for schoolchildren on financial literacy was organized. At the end of December there was a presentation of the projects of the “Start-up Club”; R.V. Zagidullin became one of the members of the jury of the regional competition of youth business ideas “Predprinimay”.
