MAPPED IN TURKEY
The purpose of this project is to create a sector map that includes entrepreneurship clubs, academicians, technology transfer offices, entrepreneurship centers, non-profit organizations, investors and incubation centers. This map will simplify the communication between students, academicians, entrepreneurship and incubation centers and investors.
The project was realized with the collaboration of Endeavor and Entrepreneurship Foundation, and with the grant of ISTKA (Istanbul Development Agency). It aims to encourage Design, Thinking and Entrepreneurship in Creative Industries. The objectives of this project are to increase the impact of Istanbul in creative industries, to bring it to a global competitor level with methods that help it achieve an entrepreneurship spirit and talent, to increase the delivery of products to both local and global markets and to contribute to the increase of corporate capacity.
