Paperstack and Google

Working at a bank, I witnessed the challenges small business owners face in getting the financing they need because of how the system works. That's when I knew I wanted to solve this problem through my own startup. Now with our Paperstack, we can help online store owners with providing the financing they need.

We were overwhelmed with joy when we found out that we were chosen from hundreds of companies in America and Canada. When I submitted our application, I was very aware that the competition in North America was crazy. I couldn't believe my eyes when my name was on the same list as talented entrepreneurs from Toronto, San Francisco and Los Angeles. I was so happy that a girl from Zhezkazgan could be among the top entrepreneurs in the global innovation scene.

Less than 3% of the companies that apply get into the prestigious Techstars accelerator. For me, it served as a learning experience and opened many doors. The people who work there have invested their energy, resources, and experience in us, which has transformed me into an entrepreneur and had a huge impact on our business. We've gained investors, partners, friends and a community that's always ready to help.
