Reference: The Project “BOOST – Businesses and Organisations in Uzbekistan and Kyrgyzstan operate sustainably” was launched on February 1, 2020 as part of the European Union’s extensive Central Asia Invest V program. The lead partner is sequa gGmbH (Germany). At our opening conference, we inform business organizations, businesses from the textile and agri-food sectors, consulting companies and young people about the proposals of our project. 

Target groups of the conference:

  • Business associations that wish to develop new services for their members in the areas of “Supporting the development of new markets”, “Access to Finance” and “Support for energy efficiency”. 
  • Companies that want to enter a new market and increase their sales both regionally and internationally. 
  • Companies that want to reduce costs and increase energy efficiency. 
  • Companies that have difficulty financing their operations and investment plans. 
  • Young people who have always wanted to start their own business, but do not have the necessary skills.

Participants will receive comprehensive information about all trainings, consultations, coaching, and mentoring offered by the project and our partners. This is a unique opportunity to get a complete overview, talk to our coaches and experts, and see new opportunities. Join our conference on December 10, 2020 to learn more about what we can offer you.
