‘Garage’ incubator of start-up projects was launched in Astana
Based on the international Astana Hub technopark, the ‘Garage’ incubator of start-up projects was launched in Astana. Developers have an opportunity to find investors as part of the project. The 14-year-old Ratbek Shamshitov is an author of the ‘TrainAut’ innovative project. This app is useful in finding special exercises for children with autism.
RATBEK SHAMSHITOV, AUTHOR OF STARTUP PROJECT:
- Everybody thinks that it is possible to find these videos in the Internet, but the app is a virtual specialist and a communicator. It helps both children and parents. Only parents can grow a child out of autism.
Telemedicine and online payments at gas stations are one of the promising ideas that might become available soon to the public. The formula of a successful project is an innovative idea, a creative team and investments which may lead to a positive outcome.
DAUREN ABAYEV, KAZAKH MINISTER OF INFORMATION AND COMMUNICATIONS:
- The head of state set an ambitious goal not only to build the city, but also to make a certain system work. Astana is a center of attraction, but also the capital of young talented people. One of these steps is underway, and by the end of the year we will make an official presentation. It is important that we could provide locations for companies and startups.
The incubator of startup projects received 150 applications at the development stage. Any person can get into the ‘Garage.’ The authors of the best projects will have the opportunity to get free training and the realization of their ideas. It is expected that by 2025 the capitalization of the IT companies of Kazakhstan will grow to US$1 billion.
