It is very important to initiate a new formation based on solid foundations and to look forward to its sustainability. Magic is based on a real need, a fiction that is always open to sharing, to evolving and to changing and that associate stakeholders with common solutions. Being also a social initiative, it is necessary to add to this fiction, a conservative roof-top institution for the contribution of individual dedication, volunteerism, desire and courage, experience and knowledge. INVEST ISTANBUL has set out with a structure answering to a shortage : universalizing İstanbul’s potentials and forwarding local start-ups to foreign investors. This structure is matured with the idea of accelerating up certain initiatives and performing demodays in a financial city every year, and revealing its social effect. The financial support for the first year for this whole organization came from Istanbul Development Agency, the roof institution and financial support from Istanbul Şehir University. Istanbul Şehir University Technology Transfer Office was the one who had the illusion by editing this project.
We thank you for the following worthy team who dedicates all their shifts for months during the past year.
