Tumaris.Tech: write your name in the history of womenʼs startups!

Still doubting that IT is for girls? The Tumaris.Tech program will help dispel doubts!

Tumaris.Tech is the largest project in Central Asia to support womenʼs entrepreneurial initiatives, the purpose of which is to assist womenʼs IT startups in the implementation and development of their projects.

The project was launched in July 2020, and in February 2022 it entered the Central Asian stage.  During this time, many events and activities have been implemented aimed at increasing the involvement of girls in the IT ecosystem. Hundreds of girls and women received useful skills that helped them start their own business or develop an existing idea, and even received funding for their startups. In particular, the indicators of the project:

  • From May 2 to May 13 the Central Asian School of Trackers, where 30 specialists were trained, who later continued their work with start-up projects;
  • From May 27 to May 29 the first Central Asian hackathon for girls in 4 directions, where 47 teams presented their prototypes at Demo Day. The winners of the hackathon, in addition to valuable prizes, got the opportunity to pass out of competition to the accelerator;
  • From July 18 to October 15 the first wave of Central Asian incubation and acceleration programs for women's startup projects.  This time, in addition to the main activities, workshops were organized for the participants in the areas of Oratory and Time Management in order to develop soft-skills, as well as an additional course on financial literacy.  The program trained 46 projects from all countries of Central Asia.  As a result of the program, 26 projects presented their ideas to investors, potential partners and large companies at the final event Demo Day.  As a result, the 10 best projects were selected to present their projects at the International Exhibition of Startup Projects Tumaris.Expo, and the founders of the projects will be covered for transportation costs.
  • From 4 to 6 November the second Central Asian hackathon in three directions.  21 teams reached the finals, where, based on the results of the evaluations of the jury members, 3 winners were determined owners of valuable prizes and the possibility of out-of-competition participation in the acceleration program.

And thatʼs not all! On December 12, the final wave of the acceleration and incubation program starts, following which the 10 best startup projects will receive an invitation to the startup exhibition with transportation costs covered, which will be held in March 2023 in Tashkent. This is the final event before the closing of the Tumaris.Tech project.
