Various student incubators create a favorable environment for startup projects, where they can grow and develop under the guidance of experienced specialists.

On April 28, 2024, the Higher School of Economics held another Demo Day as part of the 3rd incubation program "AIU BUSINESS INNOVATION". During the month, aspiring entrepreneurs were trained in generating business ideas, drawing up a marketing and financial plan, as well as public speaking skills.

These startup projects presented a wide range of ideas that can solve the real problems of the modern world, from the social direction to IT solutions. Some of the projects already had working prototypes or even the first customer bases, which confirmed their potential for further growth and scaling.
