The Swiss Russian Forum (SRF) has created the Suvorov Prize as an award for outstanding innovative projects. Entrepreneurship plays a decisive role in the selection of the Prize-winner as marketability of the innovation is considered essential.
The Suvorov Prize will be bestowed upon Swiss and Russian citizens whose projects have a cross-national aspect according to the statutory SRF aims.
The Suvorov Prize provides the winner with USD 10’000 and a one-year start-up coaching for the innovation project by pwc as well as limited access to venture capital.
The selection criteria are: innovation value, creativity, social relevance and marketability as well as financial viability.
