Go Viral Network was founded in June 2017 in Almaty to unite more than 2000 leading thinkers in media, business, culture and technology from Central Asia, Eastern Europe and the United States. This community includes a creative audience, including journalists, entrepreneurs, filmmakers, musicians, activists, and enthusiasts, who want to learn new things and implement interesting projects in these areas. Go Viral Network includes a festival, an opportunity to apply for grants, speeches by well-known speakers in areas of media, business, culture and technology throughout the year. The three-day Go Viral festival takes place annually in Almaty and includes presentations, panel discussions, music, films, performances, and masterclasses from the leading trendsetters from the USA, Central Asia and Eastern Europe. Go Viral Network is supported by the US Diplomatic Mission in Kazakhstan to enable the creative audience to create and promote their content, inform, entertain, advertise and successfully interact with the global audience through social networks, new platforms, and technologies.
