We have extended the final application date of Pioneers program to 10th of October. You can find the application link at the end of the article.
If you’re hearing about Hackquarters Pioneers program for the first time; let me explain it briefly. Hackquarters Pioneers is a community which helps young entrepreneurs to build the future they want by learning, experiencing and creating with startups. So till today, we made 40+ events at 14 different locations and we still keep doing it. Our main purpose for creating different types of events at several cities in Turkey is spreading entrepreneurship to very brilliant youngsters. So now, we add new ones to the schedule and I would like to share them with you.
Lately, we started something new for us: Hacker Meetups. First one was at Bahcesehir University. And now we make it as a meetup series. There are going to be 8 meetups in İstanbul and once in other cities with different topics explaining what is product management cycle from the hackers’ point of view. CTOs and mostly some cool software engineers will be our speakers during these events. All hackers are invited of course.
Partnerships with Brands
New partnerships are coming and they are all about challenges, hackathons, and ideathons. Google is one of them. We at first start withBuild Actions for Your Community series for Google Home & Assistant in İzmir on 20th of October. Next station will be in Istanbul during DevFest at Uniq İstanbul. Please follow Hackquarters Eventbrite account for registration.
Did you know that only 25% of enterprises are owned by women in Turkey? Between all those events, this is the most important one for me to work on. Panels with our dearest women entrepreneurs from different backgrounds have been inspiring. Let’s encourage our powerful, intelligent girls to be more involved in the entrepreneurship ecosystem and to create great startups. If you are one of the women entrepreneurs who want to inspire young women, please message me via [email protected]
Online meetups are welcomed! We’ll be doing an online meetup with a rockstar entrepreneur very soon. The same concept with offline Pioneers Meetups and also other cool topics will be on the agenda.
Online is cool. That’s why we changed something about our conferences and we recorded online courses with various topics. We mostly will be uploading conferences to our youtube channel and if you ask, we’ll increase that number. For conferences as online; I know some of you couldn’t able to attend our events because there wasn’t one at your city or dates didn’t fit your schedule. Now you don’t have one of these problems because we turned it online.
Our Slack channel is also public. You can join from this link. Omegas are invited too! You can approach them via Slack, ask questions and find proper opportunities for yourself.
We are not a totally closed community to the public, we share anything that can help you to understand entrepreneurship better. And if you want to be involved in the organization process of other activities in your school, you can just contact me via [email protected]
So you are always welcome to attend and organize any Hackquarters Pioneers events or projects in your city. You can also apply for being a Pioneer. That’s how you can benefit from every opportunity Pioneers program presents to you.
