Pitching Day Travel&Tourism


It’s no secret that for any country the tourism sector opens up great economic opportunities. We highly appreciate the tourist opportunities of Kyrgyzstan. Therefore, KG Labs Public Foundation is pleased to announce the Pitching Day Travel & Tourism Hackathon.

Pitching Day is a dynamic event that allows anyone who has a business idea to present it to judges and an audience consisting of entrepreneurs, investors and innovative communities.
Once selected by the jury, top start-ups will have access to a wider audience – this will help them raise money and connect with people who can help develop their project. In addition, start-ups get a chance to win valuable prizes.
