Leading startup incubator of Kazakhstan

2011 – Launch of istartup.kz, the first platform in Kazakhstan devoted to startup ecosystem. The initial goal of the platform was creation and development of startups ecosystem. The platform brought together all the stakeholders of startup industry: startups, experts from various industries, entrepreneurs and investors. We built and thrive in a vibrant ecosystem: there are more than 100 startups appear on the platform annually.

iStartUp.kz also created and run 4 seasons of its own startup accelerator program – iStartUp School. There are 39 awesome projects and more than 100 entrepreneurs that graduated from our school. The overall investment that we attracted to our alumni startups is more than $2million.  Among our startup-family members are such successful projects as Ticketon — first company selling movie tickets online, Life Line — 911 button, Office Expert — e-commerce leader for office suppluesand many others.

2015 – iStartUp evolves from startup accelerator into startup incubator with its own seed fund. Observing our successful projects, we realize that we can do more to help the projects. That is why we designed our unique program of startup incubator in order to bring the best startups in Kazakhstan to the next level and expand to foreign markets. We gather all the startups in Kazakhstan and select the best to go through our program.

We provide startups with “smart money”: the teams not only receive seed funding in their projects, but also more importantly get the access to knowledge, expertise and connections relevant to their industry. The teams in incubator get the access to our coworking space. We have created favorable environment for startups in our coworking space to help them bring the craziest startup ideas into reality. We are interested in e-commerce, cloud computing, media-technology, mobile applications, and big-data.
