Why is the AIFC ideal for IT startups?

The flexibility of the AIFC regulatory acts allows:

  1. separate ownership and operating decision-making in the company across different classes of shares;
  2. Provide convertible loans and notes to companies;
  3. Sell / transfer without the need for coordination with other holders;
  4. Form a company with zero authorized capital.

In addition, favorable conditions have been created for the introduction of innovation through tax preferences for financial technologies. It also presents opportunities for testing hypotheses and developing new technologies and innovative ideas, new business models and business approaches in the regulatory sandbox without regulatory burdens on personnel, capital base and other prudential requirements.

In addition to financial technologies, startups can get synergy through obtaining residency in the Astana Hub Technopark, where there is an entire ecosystem for the development of IT technologies.
