Hakob Arshakyan: 45 entrepreneurs from Armenia will go abroad to  study within the "Armenian Virtual Bridge" project

ArmInfo. In 2020, within the framework of the "Armenian Virtual Bridge" project, 45 Armenian entrepreneurs will go abroad for training. On December 4, Minister of  High Technology Industry Hakob Arshakyan told journalists on the  sidelines of the Silicon Mountains Innovation Forum.

He stressed that these courses are expensive, the average price  ranges from $ 20 thousand to $ 40 thousand.  "Those entrepreneurs who  will be able to combine the acquired knowledge with Armenian talent  to create large enterprises with the achievement of world fame in the  future will go abroad to study," he said. In addition, due to an  almost 4-fold increase in the ministry's budget for 2020, in the  coming year, he said, it is planned to allocate 90 grants for  innovative programs, the cost of each of which does not exceed $ 10  thousand. Arshakyan emphasized that the grant conditions will be  presented later. Grant support will also be given to companies that  have interesting projects for developing the IT sector in the regions  of Armenia.  At the same time, he spoke about agreements with Qatar  and Dubai on implementing joint programs for start-up entrepreneurs  of Armenia. According to the minister, in 2020 it is also planned to  conduct educational programs both in Yerevan and in the regions in  which about 6 thousand people will be able to take part.

Speaking about the achievements of the outgoing year, the Minister  emphasized that Armenia registered serious successes in the framework  of participation in exhibitions in Qatar, Uzbekistan and Singapore.  In this regard, he noted that preliminary agreements were reached and  work is underway to make them real business projects.  To recall, the  agreement on the start of the project "Armenian Virtual Bridge" was  signed in October 2019 during the visit of the project initiators to  Silicon Valley.  It should be noted that according to the data of the  Statistical Committee of the Republic of Armenia, in the first half  of 2019, the revenue of the sector of information and  telecommunication technologies (ICT) reached 140 billion drams (about  $ 290 million), exceeding the indicator of the previous year by 3.9%.
