On May 29 “boiling point” was opened in “Silver City” Mall. Before that the potential participants of the “point” have been speaking about the project very carefully, not quite knowing what it is all about, but on Monday everything fell into place – now they have clear and bright understanding.
The large, bright space, named “boiling point”, is like a boiler for discussion for business ideas, for creation of startups, for search for partners and investors. However, a comparison with a boiler is not quite good. In the “boiling point” – just like in a pressure cooker, everything boils at a higher temperature, and the cooking process takes less time.
On Monday, at the opening, the “point” was visited by 264 people! There were much more potential “cooks” (if to continue our culinary comparison) than we need for comfortable everyday work of “Point”. Increased interest in the project once again convinced the enthusiasts that they have made right choice. A scrutiny by the world’s leading experts has added some temperature.

You can sit comfortably on the couch… Participants in the forum, even the most serious statesmen did so with great pleasure and have told us about its ergonomic fit, which invites to generate ideas.
But the meaning of “point” is not about the walls and the interior. Its purpose is creative potential of its participants, creation of start-ups, brilliant ideas and projects that will start at the boiling of the “point”!
