Nearly 50 resident startups of the Skolkovo Foundation took part in this year's Slush event, a major tech startup conference held on November 30-December 1 in the Finnish capital Helsinki. 

The startups exhibited their projects on a stand shared with Russian Venture Company (RVC), a fellow Russian development institute, and met with potential investors and partners during the two-day event. 

The hit attraction at the Skolkovo stand was without doubt the 3D body scanner made by Texel Ease. There was a constant queue of people to try the device, aimed at making shopping for clothes hassle-free. Photo:
