Thank you, Natalya!

Наталья Ашхабаева была впервые выбрана для участия в Специальной американской программе бизнес-стажировок The SABIT Program) в 2017 году. Наталья вместе с другими евразийскими предпринимателями посетила США и узнала о том, как развивается американская сфера моды и ритейла.

Наталья делится историей своего бизнеса и тем, как ее участие в SABIT помогло создать новую торговую марку женской одежды в Казахстане.

Специальная американская бизнес-стажировка (SABIT) насчитывает сеть выпускников, в которую входят более 7000 лидеров из деловых и научных кругов, которые используют свой опыт в SABIT для проведения рыночных реформ, развития институтов гражданского общества и содействия экономическому росту в Евразии и во всем мире.

Thank you, Viktoriya!

Как начинающий предприниматель, Виктория Горобцова участвовала в программе SABIT в 2015 году, посетив Соединенные Штаты и узнав, как там организована сфера переработки мусора. В рамках глобальной недели предпринимательства Виктория делится тем, как ее опыт участия в SABIT повлиял на запуск компании «Kazakhstan Waste Recycling». Вдохновитесь - послушайте ее рассказ.

Специальная американская программа стажировок в сфере бизнеса (The SABIT Program) была создана в начале 1990-х годов как способ вовлечь тогдашний Советский Союз в торговлю. Сегодня SABIT представляет собой уникальный форум для построения американо-евразийских партнерских отношений, создания новых и укрепления существующих связей между американскими предприятиями и их евразийскими партнерами и клиентами из каждой из бывших советских республик.

As an aspiring entrepreneur, Viktoriya Gorobtsova participated in SABIT program in 2015, visiting the United States and learning how the waste recycling industry is organized there. For this #GlobalEntrepreneurshipWeek 2020 Viktoriya is sharing how her SABIT experience influenced launching her company, "Kazakhstan Waste Recycling." Be inspired - listen to her story.

The Special American Business Internship Training Program (SABIT) began in the early 1990’s as a way to engage the then-Soviet Union through trade. Today, SABIT provides a unique forum to build U.S. – Eurasian partnerships, creating new relationships and strengthening existing ties between American businesses and their Eurasian partners and customers from each of the former Soviet republics.
