Eurasia Startup Manifesto by Astana Hub unites the principles of the development of the Eurasia startup ecosystem. We believe that these principles will help make the business environment of Eurasia better.
For whom is this:
for startups, for venture investors and business angels, for IT companies, for experts, mentors, and trackers, for representatives of the corporate sector and the state, for event organizers, for people who work in accelerators, incubators, universities and coworking places. For anyone who wants to make technological entrepreneurship more accessible, better and larger.
1. WE SOLVE REAL PROBLEMS
We remember that technology is the only tool for solving problems. We think about how to use technologies to solve real problems of society.
2. WE ARE AGILE
We apply a flexible approach to project management, quickly react to changes and focus on the result.
3. WE BUILD AN ECOSYSTEM WHERE THE INTERESTS OF ALL PLAYERS ARE RESPECTED
We develop an equal opportunity ecosystem where community members strive to achieve the ultimate common goal.
4. WE BELIEVE THAT THE STATE CONTRIBUTES TO THE DEVELOPMENT OF THE ECOSYSTEM
Creating infrastructure and favorable conditions, adapting legislation to modern realities, supporting private initiatives for the development of the ecosystem, supporting the scaling up of startups to international markets, minimizing bureaucracy is the best scenario for the state’s role in the development of the ecosystem.
5. WE DEVELOP A CULTURE OF VENTURE FINANCING
It is necessary to create an environment where the interests of participants in risky transactions will be protected. For startups - affordable investment. For investors - the confidence that the investment will be justified.
6. WE ARE OPEN TO GLOBAL PARTNERSHIPS
We strive to have more tech entrepreneurs in the world. International collaboration will help expand opportunities, reduce the technological gap between countries, share practices and knowledge and make project scaling more accessible.
7. WE SHARE EXPERIENCE
And we ask to be open for entrepreneurs. Each person has specific experience and knowledge that can be useful for new entrepreneurs. Be a mentor - share your experience and teach what you can.
8. WE INVEST THROUGH BUYING STARTUP PRODUCTS
Clients are the best investors of startups. They provide a permanent source of income, practice the business model, assess market attractiveness and reduce the need for investment.
We ask the government, corporations, organizations, and individuals to buy goods and services from startups.
9. WE ARE PROUD TO BE ENTREPRENEURS
Entrepreneurs are a new force; standard-bearers who lead and inspire for changes and make life better.
Entrepreneurs should become a role model for young talents, motivate to the development and inspire with their achievements.
