14 startups presented their projects at the third stream of Pitch Day
The third stream of Pitch Day, coordinated by Akimat of Astana and technopark, took place at the International Technopark of IT Startups Astana Hub. The event's primary purpose is to locate and select IT solutions that will facilitate and improve the population's quality of life while also influencing the development of municipal infrastructure.
"At this time, our responsibility is to engage in modern technology. So, thank you for your contribution to the development of Astana. I am happy to see you here," - Gani Tazhiyev, a member of the jury and chairman of the board of City Transportation Systems LLP, greeted the participants.
Fourteen companies at various stages of development - from concepts to ready-made solutions - have indicated their intention to conduct the pilot with the capital's Akimat and contribute to the city's development. For example, the UniPark.kz mobility platform application is designed to solve any logistical issues. Tasu.kz is an application that assists regular people in earning money and improving their field of activity through trucking. SMP ROBOTICS's "Tral Patrol" robot development project is intended to defend closed sections of industrial facilities, factories, and storage rooms.
"Virtual reality allows you to immerse yourself in history fully. For example, to become a sarbaz of the last khan Kenesary and participate in the uprising or to visit the famous Akmola gingerbread factory. Such historical facts we can recreate in the virtual world, which will be of interest to residents and guests of the capital", - presented Big Dream Lab startup Aigerim Mukasheva.
Participants spoke about what support they expected from the akimat. "From the Akimat, we would like to get help, an order to patrol public and urban areas, and assistance for participation in the national monitoring system of JSC State Technical Service", - Saken Bakimov noted during the presentation of the SMP ROBOTICS startup.
