A Report on Turkish Start-ups

The Netherlands Foreign Investment Agency (NFIA) collaborated with the Dutch Innovation Network (IA) and together they wrote a report on Turkish start-ups. Their research shows that Turkey is a breeding ground for high tech startups. However, when the Turkish startups have international ambitions, they are insufficiently supported. The opportunities the Netherlands could offer are also unknown to the start-ups. This can be considered a true loss of opportunities, since Turkey is full of bright young entrepreneurs with innovative ideas waiting for a chance outside the country.

For more information on the opportunities within the Turkish start-up ecosystem and possibilities on collaboration see the report in the link under the related documents above.
