About us
The Printing Pioneer Fund was established in 2007. Our goals remain unchanged: to promote the development and export of Russian education, culture, science and technology.

The Fund conducts education work: We publish books and we have created 168 episodes of «Do Russians know Russian?» TV show, a series of documentaries «A Novel in Stone» (World masterpieces of love), poetic art videos based on the poems of Russian poets of the Silver Age. We do events, competitions and conferences. «Do Russians know Russian?» TV show was broadcasted abroad on the NTV-Mir channel, as well as on the TV-Center, Doverie and 2x2 TV channels. The «Russian people. Frank Conversation» photo exhibition was organized in 4 countries of the world.

In the last 15 years, we have accumulated a huge experience: We have held joint events with the City Hall of Florence, the Russian House from Berlin, the Pushkin House from London, SEA Universities, innovation departments and accelerators from India, Finland, UAE and other foreign countries.

We consider the Printing Pioneer Ivan Fedorov to be the first Russian EdTech entrepreneur and we continue the development of technologies in education and other areas that create positive changes in people's lives. We help impact entrepreneurs in the development of their projects.
