On December 3, a youth Digital Fest STARTUPHANA aimed at the development of Kazakhstani IT content will be held in the capital of Kazakhstan. More than 3 thousand people have already registered to participate in the forum.

"Astana Hub works hard to support IT startups. STARTUPHANA expands the framework for experience exchange and makes knowledge about the creation and development of IT business even more accessible to Kazakhstanis," said Magzhan Madiev, CEO of Astana Hub.

Within the framework of STARTUPHANA, more than ten successful bloggers, motivators, and experts in the IT field will talk about the relevance of the IT profession, will share their experiences in business and DIGITAL, discuss topics of startups, marketing, NFT, and others.

The speakers:

Maksat Kadyrov - senior software engineer at LinkedIn, USA; Bogenbai Talasuly - founder of the education platform "Sabaq. online"; Danabek Kaliazhdar - CEO of Alem School, data scientist; Abylaykhan Kamalladin - CEO of QAMALLADIN bloggers agency; Rasul Abdullayev - co-founder of Yuframe and Kex, marketing director of SalamBro, HalalSlice; Almas Adilbek - iOS developer and creator of the Sajda application, which has already had over 3 million downloads and others.

"In our country and throughout the world, The IT industry and the community interested in it have been developing rapidly in recent years, but the Kazakh-language IT content is still not properly formed. Our goal is to fill this gap. The language of IT is English, and we must not only increase English-Kazakh content but also invest, allocate subsidies, and support IT startups that teach the Kazakh language. With the help of such startups, the existing IT community will also have an opportunity to be present on the Kazakh-language platform. It will help us not to divide our small group of IT activists and develop the industry together," said Mukhtar Kuanyshbayuly, founder of the IT startup "Connected Home," one of the speakers of the forum.

The entertaining part of the STARTUPHANA program includes performances of headliners, representatives of the community of young Kazakh-speaking IT enthusiasts, contests and raffles of memorable gifts, and consultations on Astana Hub educational programs. For more information about the forum, go through the link
