Silk Road Sustainability Tour, HighTechXL and Get in the Ring bundle their powers to create an event for sustainable entrepreneurs in Astana, Kazakhstan.

We all know the world is transforming rapidly. Not only in means of innovations, but also physically. Our planet is heating up, glaciers are melting and draughts result in hunger and thirst. But it’s not too late. With the first transformation we can solve the second. Innovative solutions are key to changing our climate problems.

Sustainability can be a broad concept. Therefore the focus of this event will be on topics related to sustainability such as, circular economy, waste management, supply chain optimisation and many others.


Be inspired by cutting edge technologies from all over the world and stay up to date with the latest opportunities for startups.

That’s why on the 14th of July 2017,  we invite local and foreign startups with this focus to Astana, for a day full of training and networking to engage with the present stakeholders on this topic and last but not least to pitch their ideas. And not like any other pitch, no, in the spotlight, in a boxing ring in front of a audience of sustainability experts, business leaders, investors and startup fans! Not enough to get you interested? The winner will also get a ticket for the Global final of 2018 and a spot in the HighTechXL accelerator program to scale up effectively and efficiently. 

Are you a startup that is involved with sustainability in some way or another? Then this is your chance to find global partners, scale up and create the largest impact you can. This is an opportunity you don’t want to miss out on, apply here.
