The Corporate accelerator GenerationS from RVC and Kazakhstani start-up accelerator Dar Group Limited (DAR Lab) LLP agreed to cooperate in the development of innovative startups in the field of logistics — companies will exchange information on new technological solutions, invite start-ups of Dar Group Limited to participate in accelerators in Russia and GenerationS startups — in Kazakhstan.
The starting point of the agreement will be the holding of the GenerationS event in early 2019 jointly with Dar Lab in Kazakhstan in order to attract projects to Russian corporate accelerators. In the future, educational programs are planned in the field of innovative entrepreneurship, the exchange of expertise and information on opportunities for entrepreneurs in the markets of both countries. Due to this, GenerationS projects will receive an opportunity to enter the Kazakhstan market, and the start-ups of Dar Group Limited — the Russian one.
“GenerationS is open for projects from other countries, ready to share experience and expertise with foreign accelerators as well as to scale the successful experience of our graduates abroad. The network of our foreign partners already covers more than 10 countries, including Belarus, Austria, Germany, Singapore, Israel, etc. We see the prospects for innovative development of Kazakhstan, and we believe that their projects are ready to cooperate with our corporate customers, in whose interests we are selecting and accelerating start-ups,” says Ekaterina Petrova, Director of Corporate Accelerator at GenerationS.
GenerationS systematically builds partnerships with a number of foreign corporations, government agencies, infrastructure facilities and venture capital funds to improve the international status of the project. About 100 GenerationS graduates are already active in international markets, including in Kazakhstan.
