On May 3, Astana Hub announced its new acceleration program, AI'preneurs, aimed at bringing together specialists and creating teams to develop innovative startups in artificial intelligence, QazMonitor reports citing the Hub’s press service.

Duration: The program spans four months and comprises three primary stages, offering educational sessions and personalized guidance from industry specialists to the participating teams.

  • First stage: Forming teams from a pool of selected candidates.

  • Second stage: Developing startup ideas, including creating a product prototype. Teams present their prototypes to an investment committee, which then selects projects to proceed to the next stage.

  • Third stage: Successful projects from the previous stage receive funding to advance towards full-scale product development.

Participants failing to form teams or whose projects do not gain approval from the investment committee are either dropped from the program or can join other teams.

Eligibility: The program is open to developers, engineers, data analysts, product managers, and other IT specialists worldwide. It will be conducted on-site in Astana, with accommodation provided for participants from other cities and countries.

The value of AI'preneurs lies in providing all the conditions for the full cycle of startup development – from the inception of an idea to its successful realization in the market. Within the framework of the project, experienced mentors and coordinators offer personalized support and oversee project development. Participants will be able to engage with specialized experts and receive individual consultations on their product. Additionally, we will furnish technical equipment to the teams by supplying the necessary datasets and GPUs.

said Yerbol Akhmetov, Director of Astana Hub Business Programs Office.

The application deadline is May 26.
