City development and the quality of life of residents directly depend on creating and actively integrating modern technologies and services. Many cities are working to create special conditions for technological research and entrepreneurship. Such conditions can be new funds, grants, platforms, which together form an ecosystem of support for projects at different levels. Moscow actively invests in its ecosystem and creates communication platforms, media resources, research and small business support systems. One of the recent initiatives was the opening of an innovative cluster — a platform designed to optimize the communication between startups, the state and investors and capable to significantly improve the environment for innovative business in the city.
