What is the purpose of ITU Çekirdek Partner Programme?
ITU Çekirdek has adopted it an objective to support all technology entrepreneurs that needed it as an early-stage incubation centre that has been available to entire Turkey since the day it was established.
A total of 24.832 projects were evaluated throughout Turkey in the first 6 years. 3.450 entrepreneurs that made up 1.150 early-stage technology start-ups were funded and among these, the ones who were able to convince the investors received investments worth over 35 million TL in total.
Another step was taken in 5th year of ITU Çekirdek and all information and resources filtered from the experiences of the past years started to be shared with speed-up programmes, incubation centres and pre-incubation centres in Turkey and even all around the world. ITU Çekirdek has become a big feast as of its 6th year where good ideas arose, entrepreneurs celebrated their investments with their angel investors and all partners of BigBang Entrepreneurship Contest participated.
In this way, just as a technology entrepreneur attains access to some trainings, mentoring and resources when (S)he reaches ITU Çekirdek at pre-incubation stage and gets the opportunity to meet angel investors and risk capital companies, all of these facilities were rendered available to our country and even all the entrepreneurs who have set their eyes on İstanbul.
