Astana-based InnoDent's innovative product aids prevention of tooth decay and stimulates natural regeneration of tooth enamel. The product's popularity meant the company was ready for international expansion but was unable to finance the necessary increase in production capacity
How Baiterek Helped
The National Agency for Technological Development (NATD), a subsidiary of Baiterek, provided a co-financing grant of $41mn to fund expansion of InnoDent's high-tech production facilities.
InnoDent is now used in over 200 dental clinics in Kazakhstan, Russia, Ukraine and Uzbekistan. The company plans to introduce a product for use at home by people with hypersensitive teeth, to be bought in pharmacies or online. It also plans to patent its product and introduce it to more overseas markets in early 2018
