Pre-Incubation Process :
The start-ups admitted to ITU ÇEKİRDEK can use the 800 m2 open office located in ARI 3 building in Maslak free of charge as a work office, develop their prototypes in the laboratory area that includes the equipment required for R&D and get one-to-one appointments from over 250 Çekirdek mentors. They develop their projects on canvas business model, financial models and strategies on entering the market with the “Entrepreneurship Training” designed exclusively for start-ups.
Pre-Incubation Acceleration Programme: The start-ups that pass the post-“Entrepreneurship Training” jury continue to benefit from training, seminar, consultancy and mentoring services in order to commercialize their projects at this stage and may be entitled to use the R&D fund allocated in order to develop their prototypes. During the course of this process, they continue to receive support from Çekirdek mentors and trainers on first customer meetings, sales processes and investment processes and benefit from special training and consultancies within this scope.
