Astana Hub is currently seeking IT startups to join its Scalerator program
This accelerator program is open to IT projects at the MCI or Scale stage and is hosted at the International Technology Park Astana Hub.
The Scalerator export accelerator equips startups with the skills needed to enter new markets, such as the United States, Europe, the CIS, and Southeast Asia, and secure contracts with companies globally.
Applications for Scalerator are now open and will be accepted until April 23, 2023, with the program beginning on May 15. IT startups that are members of Astana Hub and have products in the Product Market Fit or Scale stage can apply for participation.
The program is intensive and lasts four months, comprising two blocks: an educational block and a sales track. The educational block focuses on practical assignments, market analysis, target market segments, packaging the product, and finding customers through LinkedIn, the web, and inbound channels. The sales track is designed to help startups prepare for export, offering guidance from leading trackers in the region, lead generation, testing, and sales.
The Scalerator program concludes with a Demo Day, where startups can present their projects to invited investors and business angels. Over 140 alumni have successfully completed the Scalerator program, with sales and presales on participants' contracts amounting to $1.3 million, 50+ export contracts secured, and $500,000 invested. More information about previous Scalerator cohorts can be found on the Astana Hub platform.
