Vnesheconombank and Expert Me have agreed to cooperate in promoting the Expert Platform, Russia’s leading provider of expertise. “Russian companies and foreign businesses that either have an existing presence in Russia or are looking to gain entry into our market can use the Expert Platform to get first-rate industry expertise from tens of thousands of leading independent consultants as promptly as possible. This also helps Vnesheconombank, as a development institution, to pursue one of its principal goals: creating the conditions for improving the quality of managerial decision-making; obtaining quick, high-quality and affordable expertise for investment projects; setting up high-technology start-ups and optimising the existing production processes in the real economy,” Vnesheconombank’s Senior Vice-President and Expert and Analysis Directorate Head Dmitry Ivanchenko said.

The Expert Platform will bring together business consultants, auditors, production managers, bankers, financiers, IT developers and venture investors. “Early-stage expert support adequately and promptly provided for projects considerably reduces their risks and makes it possible to avoid incorrect market assessments or business model mistakes, understand key factors in success in the niches in the market and create new jobs,” Dmitry Ivanchenko said.

Cooperation with Vnesheconombank provides innovators with new opportunities. “There are plans to reach our ambitious goal of creating the Russian market’s leading platform with fully digitalised services. Expert Me today is 3,000 industry experts, more than 200 completed projects and expert opinions a year. Our clients are companies in the real economy, consultancies. Together with Vnesheconombank, we have plans to increase the number of experts to 50,000 and reach several thousands of expert opinions per year. We are considering a new level in the long run: Russian expert services offered globally,” Expert Me CEO Ilya Bindyuk said.

In contrast to traditional consulting and other solutions, the Expert Platform promoted by Vnesheconombank and Expert Me provides high-quality advice from industry experts and offers prompt and affordable services. The Expert Platform will be of interest to Russian and foreign companies, banks, investment and venture capital funds, financial market participants and federal and regional authorities. The range of services offered is very comprehensive: consulting and auditing for business and financial models, performance evaluation for business units, potential expansion into new markets, market research and foresight, possible operations transformation.

With an annual turnover of more than 500 million US dollars, the expert services market has shown steady growth since 2010. According to IBISWorld, the three largest providers of expertise account for over 75% of the industry’s total revenue in 2017. There has been a trend towards higher market concentration over the past five years. As estimated by market participants, more than 500,000 projects are evaluated by experts networks every year.

Tens of Thousands of Lone Elderly People to Receive New Year Presents

The Enjoyable Aging Charity Foundation initiative to collect New Year presents for lone elderly people was supported by dozens of companies and organisations, including Vnesheconombank and its partners.

The initiative is open to anyone. Participants can personally buy a present and deliver it to any collection point in more than 30 Russian regions, make a donation to the Foundation or play the role of Father Frost. Thousands of lone elderly people have recently sent letters requesting some present or other. Every day the Foundation’s volunteers and partners supporting the initiative deliver small but welcome presents to those who are alone today (detailed information about the initiative can be found the Enjoyable Aging Charity Foundation website).

The Enjoyable Aging Charity Foundation has collected as many as 29,300 presents to date. We are sure that Father Frost will please tens of thousands of elderly people more by New Year’s Eve. Participation in the project is absolutely voluntary and does not mean publicity. The Foundation’s partners supporting the initiative are, however, confident that a good example also deserves to be spoken about.

“The New Year is a time when it is particularly important to let lone elderly people know that we remember and love them; we have organised the collection of New Year presents for them for many years. This year the project became a nationwide initiative of a large number of caring people. We are pleased that dozens of large public organisations, businesses and thousands of people have joined us with the noble aim of giving New Year festivities to the elderly,” Liza Oleskina, Director of the Enjoyable Aging Charity Foundation, said.

Vnesheconombank volunteers provide assistance for more than 850 residents of three retirement homes in the village of Dubna, Tula Region, in the town of Vyshny Volochyok, Tver Region, and in the village of Ostashyovo, Moscow Region. The Tula Region-based nursing home has already received presents from Vnesheconombank employees, and Vyshny Volochyok will be visited by Father Frost this week.

“With a little effort, we can each do a really good deed and help those who actually need it. We held a meeting with our staff members to decide on support for volunteer projects, but participation in volunteer projects is completely voluntary. When a donation comes from a company’s budget, this does not give any energy. When a donation is personally made to someone in need, this is quite a different story. The New Year is coming quickly, and these wintertime festivities have already become warmer for a lot of people,” Vnesheconombank’s Chairman Sergey Gorkov said.

The Enjoyable Aging Charity Foundation initiative has already been supported by the Agency for Strategic Initiatives; Immortal Regiment; Vnesheconombank and its subsidiaries; Gymnasium; Far Eastern Federal University; Trendy Kids, Samara; Dental Fantasy; Child of the Universe; Volunteers of Russia; Lefkadia Valley; Invitro; I love running family; Kids Office; Coffeemania; Philanthropists of Siberia; Moscow Municipal Pedagogical University; National University of Science and Technology MISiS; Moscow Engineering Physics Institute; Moscow Bank of Sberbank; Gorky Park; Russian Post; Russian State Social University; RUSAL; Synergy School of Business; Synergy University; SIRIUS Centre for Education; Skolkovo Foundation; Skolkovo Ventures; Sparta; SPLAT; You Are Not Alone; Horoshkola; Young Army Cadets.
