Funding and accelerating fintech ventures in Kazakhstan
The program is a three-month acceleration program focused on growth and traction. We select top fintech, insurtech and e-commerce startups from Kazakhstan and other emerging markets that are ready to work to grow exponentially.

We bring in a wide variety of experts focused on growth marketing, product optimization, user testing, sales, fundraising and more. We teach you the best methodology to accelerate your startup and be ready to raise Series A.
