As we all know, Turkey's agenda has been shaken by the massive earthquakes, and we, as Ventures & Beyond, want to raise awareness and solutions to the problems our country is experiencing due to disasters in a sustainable way through the entrepreneurship ecosystem. We aim to do this by encouraging ventures that offer innovative solutions to these problems, with a social impact entrepreneurship program ,ImpactForFuture, which will be organized in collaboration with GSU INNOVE (Galatasaray University Entrepreneurship and Innovation Center). The main theme of the program will be "Sustainable, Innovative and Technological Solutions in Earthquake, Crisis and Disaster Management" with the sub-themes of earthquake, climate change, pandemic, fire, flood, cyber-attack, etc. The Call for this program is for all sectors which address the themes mentioned.
The Entrepreneurship Program will be an inclusive program that will include many modules from training processes (in which modern entrepreneurship is encouraged) to mentoring; also from venture evaluation processes to investor meetings. Thanks to this program, ventures will have the opportunity to learn and experience many stages of the entrepreneurship ecosystem from both academic and sectoral professionals; will broaden their business network; and will get the opportunity to meet with potential investors. At the end of the program, ventures that pass the program evaluation with a degree are rewarded with a ceremony which will be a perfect reference for the future.
The call for the entrepreneurship program will be open to the application of all ventures at all stages globally.
