Our city hosted the “Meet up” competition as part of the “Momentum: Entrepreneurship for Girls” project. “Meet up” is an immersion in the entrepreneurial environment, a two-day event, which was attended by about 60 girls aged 14 to 18 from the city of Semey. They represented 16 teams.
The Momentum project is aimed at developing entrepreneurial thinking, increasing interest in entrepreneurship, developing interpersonal skills of participants, and is implemented by the Association of Friends of the Tel Aviv University of the Republic of Kazakhstan with the support of the US Embassy in Kazakhstan in partnership with the Kazakh Humanitarian and Legal Innovative University.
A team of students from the Nazarbayev Intellectual School of Physics and Mathematics in the city of Semey also took part in this competition. It consisted of 10th grade pupils Nurai Abylkassymova, Aidana Yerlankyzy, Alim Babakpayev and Dayana Makulbaeva.
