The winners of the first prize in Kazakhstan in the field of digitalization of the Digital Bridge Awards will be awarded by the prime ministers of Kazakhstan, Estonia, and the first deputy prime minister of Kyrgyzstan.

In addition, the forum will host 9 panel sessions, where we invite Kazakh and international key experts of the IT industry. For example, Dirk Alborne CEO of Hyperloop Transportation will come to us: Bob Dorf is an entrepreneur, author of the bestseller Startup. Founder’s handbook; Jeff Hoffman cofounder of Priceline Group; Sina Harfa CEO and founder of Evtiko; Rajesh Shawnee founder of the GSF accelerator in India; JeanFrancois Gautier CEO of Startup Genome; Craig Smith is a man who has worked in Silicon Valley for 20 years and now heads the technology valley of Dhahran in Saudi Arabia, Ben Pekran is the founder of the international movement Startup Safari and others, .said the Vice Minister of Information and Communications of the Republic of Kazakhstan Dinara Shcheglova.

A very important feature of the Digital Bridge forum is that we give participants the opportunity to hold halfhour 1: 1 B2B meetings with potential partners, investors, startups. These meetings will be premoderated using a special mobile application. Soon in social bridge accounts on social networks we announce the application itself and post links for downloading.

Overall, as Dinara Shcheglova noted, the results of the Digital Bridge Forum are expected to be expressed in attracting international IT startups and investors to Astana Hub, in sharing digitalization experience with various countries and in the opportunity to meet potential business partners or future employees to promote IT growth.
