“Local entrepreneurs Vasily Zakiyev and Ramil Ibragimov built the Navigator Campus technological cluster with support from five foreign venture funds which have offices in Russia. The overall amount of investments is about $4 million.

The tech park’s residents will create about 40 start-up companies, employing 160 people, in the field of robotics and the production of household electric devices and 3D-printers.

Navigator Campus has an area of 1,200 square meters, and its owners have plans to increase the area fivefold. According to the republic’s Ministry of Information and Communication, investors have already pledged to invest $10 million in the construction of the park’s second stage.
