Taking into  account the unprecedented involvement of a wide partner network,  investors and companies of different directions, according to A.   Akopyan, the forum is now at the center of attention, which obliges  the Fund to work more quickly to conduct a tent business forum in  2018, with the aim of increasing the international significance of  the event. "We want to make the Sevan StartUp Summit center on the  startup map so that participation in our forum is already considered  an achievement," he stressed. In particular, the head of StartUp  Armenia noted that next year the Fund hopes to attract participants  from 30-50 countries. At the same time, the organizers associate  positive expectations with investments. In this regard, Hakobyan  noted that last year the volume of investments from investors was  about $ 30 thousand. "This year we expect investments to exceed $ 200  thousand," he said.

Ameriabank is the general partner of the business forum. "The bank  rendered financial assistance to the Fund in organizing the forum,  and the Grand prix of $ 8,000 will also be provided by Ameriabank,"  said Ameriabank's director for technology and operations, Burastan  Movsisyan, responding to a question from ArmInfo. In this regard, she  stressed that the Bank is pleased to make its contribution and be  part of a similar project that will contribute to the development of  innovative business in the country.

Within the framework of the forum, according to the organizers, for  participants from July 24 to 26 will be held 12 lectures, after which  competitions will begin on July 27 for teams of different directions,  in particular start-up-battles, competitions for programmers.
