Now you all know that as Hackquarters, we love all entreprises and entrepreneurs. Of course, we love some more. If you ask “So, which enterprises are they?”, we would say that those are the enterprises that we contribute the most to their development. To be more specific, it would be our friends who are under the wings of Hackquarters, also included on our website. It would also be the enterprises in Isbank’s Workup or Bayer’s Grants4Apps, two of the acceleration programs we carry out.
There were many beloved initiatives that made us proud in the PILOT program of Turk Telekom, where the finalists presented their work to the jury in Kolektif House. To name a few, initiatives such as Loki, PartyMag, Octovan, Vivoo and Glamy performed well in front of the jury members including Kaan Akın, the founder of Hackquarters.
The winners of the Turk Telekom Pilot program were also officially announced at the end (To be honest, we actually kept this blog ready for this statement). 11 initiatives including our beloved PartyMag were presented on the Turk Telekom Pilot website.
