This initial event was so successful that further seminars are in the pipeline, with the aim of bringing together Kazakh and Austrian entrepreneurs. “Austria is the perfect teammate in technology partnerships. In general, Kazakh companies are unaware of the potential on offer here – that’s why we see ourselves as playing the role of intermediary,” summarised host Anna Zeitlinger on the conclusion of the event.
