Thus, participants received professional assistance in finding business partners from top specialists. And the result was not long in coming.
“As for the numbers, in total we received 234 applications. 94 IT companies have graduated. We had three directions, namely there were 30 companies that are focused on North America and Europe, 30 companies working with CIS countries, and 34 countries concentrated on Southeast Asia. Of these 94 companies, there are about 40 contracts. As for the plans to work with other countries, we have one big goal for 2025 as part of the assignment, which is to make US$500 million in exports of IT services,” said Meruyert Tleubergenova, Manager of Astana Hub’s Business Program Office.
