Opportunity Network is an innovative online platform that brings together owners and top managers of companies from around the world and allows them to find real business opportunities for business development. The amount of deals already done on the platform by companies in over 100 different industries amounts to $395 billion. The platform connects more than 45,000 business leaders and investors and helps them find new clients, service and product providers, distributors, real estate deals, opportunities to invest or raise money. And that means new international deal opportunities will open up for domestic business people, connecting directly with 45,000 top executives and investors in 140 countries.
"Our goal is to enable a CEO from Nur-Sultan or Almaty to have the same access to global business opportunities as a CEO from New York or London," said Brian Pallas, CEO and founder of Opportunity Network.
Access to the network will open doors to a world of new international opportunities for Kazakhstan top managers and business people, who want to connect with trusted counterparties from different countries, as well as investors interested in the Kazakh market.

"One of the main objectives of our organization is to promote the foreign economic activities of Kazakh companies. In the current global environment, digital solutions are becoming one of the main tools for finding counterparties. Therefore, we are very happy to work with Opportunity Network to provide Kazakh companies with access to the international market," says Azamat Askiruly, CEO of QazTrade.
