Please provide examples of any previous entrepreneurial initiatives you have pioneered.
I'm a fellow of Turkey Entrepreneurship Foundation. Before Evreka I've established my first company Stajup.com when I was 3rd year at university.Stajup.com was a special career platform for startups and university students. There is a problem of students' work experience, and on the other hand startups are now able to find&recruit people. Stajup.com was a solution for that problem. Then I've co-founded Connection Raiser. Connection Raiser is an initiative to improve and develop entrepreneurship ecosystem in Ankara. There is a huge potential in Ankara as there are high-qualified universities in the city. However, the ecosystem is so weak in here, as people do not communicate. With connection raiser we are organising events , workshops and trainings in order to improve whole system and create a great community. These are my personal experience. Berkay Akçora and Mert Barutçu also has their startup experience.
Beyond your existing team, who else are you working with to achieve your objectives, eg partners, advisors, mentors?
We have good-will agreements with Vodafone TR, General Electric, ISSD and Carbon Clear companies in order to achieve our goals. Moreover we are in touch with Intel, Turkcell and many more companies to make this big dream real.
On the other hand, as we got investment from 500 Startups Erhan Erdoğan (500Startups partner in Turkey) and Erbil Karaman (500Startups partner & Facebook new product manager) are our mentors. Moreover Sina Afra (Founder of Markafoni and Entrepreneurship Foundation) , Yomi Kastro, Aydın Öztunalı are in our advisory board. Last but not least, I'm alumni of Entrepreneurship Foundation and we are in the process of Endeavour, this brings us to reach their huge mentor network.
