Hackquartes Pioneers is a young, growing and enthusiastic community which supports university and high school students to reach guidance, advice and experiences they need about entrepreneurship. Starting this term, we have 100 new Pioneers to bring into the startup ecosystem from over 1000 applications. Our Pioneers are spread among 20 cities, 32 universities and 5 high schools! We’ll meet with our new recruits for HackCon4 on November 18th, at Kolektif House Maslak.
HackCon4 is going to start with Kaan Akın’s speech and my presentation about Hackquarters Pioneers’ future. Namık Kural will take the stage to share his story as an investor. With delicious food from Pizza Locale, great drinks from Lipton and help of Startup HR, we will have some free, networking time with our Pioneers and other attendants. As an extra info: StartupHR is also founded by two Pioneers.
After networking and lunch break, our beloved Omegas will take the stage: Berke Uygun & Emrah Yiğit from Doktorderki, Sonat Kaymaz from Scorp, Berkay Şamiloğlu from Tion, Serkan Dinçer from Coimex, Mehmet Taş from Blockpays and Sezer Ulutaş from Appcent. They’ll share their unique experiences and they are also going to evaluate 2 minutes long Pioneer pitches.
Ecodation is a smart education platform with a great team of mentors from various expertise such as app development, business and more. They will be telling more about themselves and their future plans at HackCon4. For our new term, Ecodation will be helping our Pioneers with their self-development and they will also be looking for new brand ambassadors among our Pioneers.
TurkishKit is a community which provides quality educations for the curious Pioneers who want to learn more about software and design. They are mainly focused on technical and practical education. They will be telling more about the development ecosystem and how Hackquarters and TurkishKit will collaborate in our upcoming Hacker Meetups. (You can see our upcoming events on Hackquarters Eventbrite page).
As Hackquarters Pioneers we aim to focus on learning smart, applicable and practical things instead of just talking about theoretical information. So with our partners, Omegas and mentors around us, we’ll be organizing crazy things as many different cities as we can. HackCon is always a huge excitement for us and now it is a starting point of the new era of Pioneers.
Our next step is moving our community to global and making meetups in other countries too. Keep following us on social media for more updates!
