Yaroslavl City Delegation Visits Boston to View Innovation Ecosystem

Yaroslavl Deputy Mayor Oleg Vinogradov led an official delegation to Boston from May 5 8 to observe how innovation is promoted in Boston and Cambridge. The visit included a presentation to the Chamber members on Tuesday, May 7 at the Downtown Harvard Club. Yaroslavl is often referred to as the center of democracy in Russia after the upset victory of Mayor Yevgeny Urlashov a year ago. The new City administration is now working hard to bring new ideas and new practices to Yaroslavl, a city of 600,000 people located northeast of Moscow on the Volga River. Last year it was third highest recipient of State Venture Capital investment in its local startup companies.

In Boston, the delegation met with Boston City Councilor Tito Jackson, chair of the Global Opportunities Committee of the Boston City Council, Cambridge City Councilor Leland Cheung, Boston Neighborhood Network, World Class Cities Program, Boston Innovation District, Cambridge Innovation Center, MIT-Skolkovo Program and Babson College. The visit to Boston was organized by Daniel Satinsky, Chamber Board President and V.P. Business Development, Foresight Science & Technology, Inc.

Yaroslavl looks forward to continuing its ties with Boston and Cambridge through its annual Days of American Culture festival that will take place in late September and through a national Innovation Forum that will take place in Yaroslavl in May 2014.
