I have the opportunity to impact the recycling and environmental sector in Kyrgyzstan, Central Asia. It’s within my power to address the garbage problem by teaching environmentally conscious behavior. Over time, we will introduce robotic systems capable of identifying different types of waste for sorting at waste processing facilities and further recycling. This is going to be an important innovation — and that inspires me. Currently in Kyrgyzstan, all waste products are sorted by humans.
I want to be part of a community of ambitious, strong, and smart women. They are heading in the same direction as me. They have submitted 116 applications for the Aurora Tech Award. Each of them is a superstar in their industry, region, country, or university. You can learn a lot from each of them. There is are saying.
Performance at a new level across a wide variety of companies is a result of these awards for women. Participants can develop new skills and new contacts for future success. The most important thing is to show that startups founded by women from Central Asia or any Russian-speaking country can bring positive change.
