Astana Hub has launched a regional incubation program
Among the participants of the new stream are projects with competitive ideas that will go from idea to prototype and from prototype to first sales in 12 weeks.
On September 10, Astana Hub hosted the official launch of the incubation program for early-stage startups "Regional & Online Incubation".
This year the incubation will take place in two formats: offline — for the cities of Almaty, Shymkent, Atyrau, Petropavlovsk, and online — for all other regions. During the online call, Arkady Seleznev, Managing Director for Development and Export of Astana Hub, made a welcoming speech. The participants of the meeting got acquainted with the activities of the hub, got acquainted in more detail with the program that they have to go through, and also learned about the most striking results of incubation of the past years.
Past participants: Temirlan Berkimbayev, VOCA founder.ss - the online service of weekend tours and Sergey Kim, the developer of the NNP video monitoring system at production facilities, talked about how Incubation gave a new impetus to the development of their startups.
It is expected that the program, along with other initiatives of Astana Hub (Techpreneurs, Seed Money), will help develop regional IT projects and activate the launch of Kazakhstani innovative products to international markets.
Incubation of regional projects will allow entrepreneurs not only to receive training at workshops and individual tracking, but also to enlist the support of experts and get to know other startups and investors.
