Viktor Mironov, Managing Director of TEAM, Project Manager TIDA Business CUP:
The basic idea of TIDA Business CUP is the use of interest to such a global event as World Cup among international businessmen and potential investors. We use the World Cup as an occasion to get acquainted with Tatarstan - the region number one in Russia from the point of view of investment climate, with Kazan as a full-fledged sports capital of Russia. We provide attendances with the opportunity to live as a student of the XXI century on modern campus of the Innopolis University, visit the show room of the Agency for Investment Development of Tatarstan (TIDA), establish direct contacts with officials and businesspeople from the region and of course – to play football within our own World Cup among businessmen.
Ewarad Latypov, member of the Board of Directors of TEAM, author of TIDA Business CUP idea:
The FIFA World Cup and similar major sporting events attract very wide attention to the international audience. During the World Cup in Germany in 2006, it was possible to achieve unique economic results for the host country. Other countries that host major sports events also demonstrate an increase in direct investment and interest from international business. Our task is to open Russia and Tatarstan in particular to those potential investors who see the prospects for the development of their business in Russia. We are glad that the idea of the project was supported at the highest level in Tatrstan and confirmed its actuality by interest of business owners and managers from Austria, Belgium, Germany, Latin America, Korea, Switzerland, Finland, and other countries.
There has been two major groups of enterprisers visited Tatartsan within TIDA Business Cup. The program included acquaintance with the investment infrastructure, including the Alabuga SEZ and Innopolis, business contacts within round tables at the Investment Development Agency, as well as an football tournament. The Business & Sport mission in June was organized in cooperation with the Foreign Trade Chamber of Germany (Deutsch-Russischen Auslandshandelskammer) and dedicated to the match between the national teams of Korea and Germany in Kazan. Participants in the main event in July were given the opportunity to attend a 1/4 final match between Brazil and Belgium.
