The sculpture «Modern Entrepreneur» is located in the center of Kursk, near a large shopping center.
The base of the monument is the map of Russia. It shows a businessman carrying a cart with heavy bags throughout the country. These bags are named as bureaucracy, taxes, loans, approvals, licenses and corruption.
However, the main idea of the monument is to represent optimism. Russian business is still moving forward and developing, no matter how hard it is. The location of the monument was chosen due to the fact that historically it was the place of merchant Frantsov's hotel. Nowadays there are shopping centres and restaurants.
