Our actions and our means
MONASIA organizes conferences, debates, economic forums, university exchanges, courses and several such events both in the Principality of Monaco and abroad on various subjects related to environmental protection and geopolitical, legal, financial and economic issues which may be of interest to local or foreign investors.
MONASIA collects and provides expertise and support to a community of public and private investors, social innovators and entrepreneurs willing to participate to the ongoing digital revolution and eager to understand the economic and financial challenges of this century. In particular, MONASIA may provide potential investors with independent information on environment-friendly financial products, digital currencies and good banking practices.
MONASIA also provides access to working spaces, resources, information and financial support to turn ideas into action. In particular MONASIA provides a permanent forum where Monégasque and European entrepreneurs can meet with strategic Russian and Kazakh strategic stakeholders.
Thanks to its private partners and sponsors, MONASIA is able to finance and collaborate on a regular basis with local non-profit associations such as The Prince Albert II Foundation and The Red Cross of Monaco, and it actively supports local charitable institutions such as The Princess Grace Hospital.
Thanks to its permanent partnership with the French CNRS, the University of Nice Sophia-Antipolis and the University of Moscou, MONASIA is able to share with its associates first-hand information on a number of economic and geopolitical subjects.
