Naryn entrepreneurs to support the idea of creating online cattle store

Bishkek, April 19 / Kabar /. A three-day Startup Weekend is held in Naryn town. The official opening ceremony took place on April 18 in the building of the University of Central Asia with the participation of 50 representatives of Naryn oblast.

46 potential entrepreneurs presented their business ideas on the first day. In general, most business ideas related to livestock.
The leading business idea was launching an online cattle store, in which the trader intends to sell cattle of Naryn region to other regions and countries. Another popular business project was the idea of launching a mini- plant for utilization of manure into fertilizer.
In addition, the short-list of the first day included the idea for organization of breeding veterinary service, construction of greenhouses, opening 3D cinema, library, cafes and recreation center for children.

Winners will receive access to the final battle of the business in Bishkek with a prize fund of KGS 500 thousand. In addition, about $ 1,000 will be invested in business projects of winners.

Startup Weekend Kyrgyzstan organized by Companion, business laboratory CAFMI, Startup Invest Fund and ICCO.

The winning team from Kyrgyzstan’s Startup Weekend will win a trip to compete at Global Entrepreneurship Week’s ‘Get in the Ring’ Battle in Europe this November. They will have the chance to compete against other international startup teams to earn up to one million euros in investment money. This is the first time that an opportunity like this has been offered to entrepreneurs in Kyrgyzstan.

The event series will place special emphasis upon Kyrgyzstan’s rural entrepreneurs, who historically have not had the resources, knowledge or skills to launch promising business ideas. By including a wider variety of participants this year, Startup Weekend Kyrgyzstan 2014 is tapping into the potential of some of the country’s most prominent economic sectors: agriculture and tourism.

This year’s organizers have divided the competition series into regional competitions, two in rural regions and two in Kyrgyzstan’s largest cities–Bishkek and Osh, followed by an exciting finale event later in the year in collaboration with Global Entrepreneurship Week.
