The very idea of an accelerator is very relevant in the modern world, it helps any idea find a way to implementation, choose the right tools and mechanisms for implementation. The accelerator is a territory of new opportunities, where everyone gets a chance to show themselves, their project, enlist the support of mentors, further financial support. The projects presented this year are worthy of attention. Of course, they all need to be improved, and for this, follow-up work and mentoring are needed. Projects that have become finalists have great chances for implementation, others also have them, but they require more time and effort to finalize, – said Ani Grigoryan.
As a result of the defense, the authors of the 7 best projects were announced as finalists and invited to the site of the Tavrida art cluster in Crimea to participate in the All-Russian competition of youth projects of the Federal Agency for Youth Affairs (Rosmolodezh) with the opportunity to receive funding for the implementation of their project.

I already have experience of participating and even winning a grant competition at Tavrida. But this is the first time I am taking part in the accelerator, and the recommendations of experts helped me a lot in how best to design my new project “Time to Fly”, Yana says. — I want to involve our youth in sports, and also show that neither material status nor social status is important for success. Therefore, as part of the project, we decided to hold motivational workshops, where we will talk about outstanding athletes who have faced life’s difficulties and managed to overcome them. Of course, there will be sports training, gymnastics and acrobatics. And the result will be a performance with the involvement of all participants in the program.
