Small and Medium Business in the Urban Environment

Today, small and medium-sized businesses are the foundation of the financial stability of most countries with long-standing market economy traditions. In recent years, this area has been developing rapidly in Russia. Due to the large potential client base, the largest number of entrepreneurs are active in large cities. However, this also generates high competition.

  • How can we achieve a balance?
  • Why is support for public associations of entrepreneurs important for the representatives of small and medium-sized businesses?
  • Is it possible to combine the experience and opportunities of city business centres for the mutually beneficial development of new interesting projects?
  • What is the role of digitalization in this issue?
