Hackquarters provides great mentorship to our Pioneers, thanks to our great network of mentors we built up working with startups.

In Hackquarters Pioneers you will have access to our great team, capacity, and disruptive technologies. It’s not only our knowledge that we will be sharing, but people who see far beyond today.

How To Startup

As an important player in the startup world, Hackquarters aims to inject more talent into the ecosystem. That's why we not only educate youngsters for business and personal development but also we give them tools that they need to become an entrepreneur.

Even before our Pioneers graduate from our system, we help them find jobs in startups. Hackquarters refers them to fellow startups as interns, full-time employees or we even match them with co-founders.


Hackquarters has great connections within startup ecosystem and corporations. While we organize a lot of workshops for our entrepreneurs, our corporate partners are also more than willing to meet with our Pioneers and provide them with valuable experience.

Our offline events are open to all our Pioneers and we try to organize events in various locations. But if you can not attend to our workshops or other events, we usually record and publish them on our online channels, so that all Pioneers can benefit.

Our Peer Groups

Even if we do not have boundaries, our Pioneers divide into 3 main groups.


We have our own ways of doing things. Together we can achieve what everyone sees as impossible. Through our different approach to problems, we not only solve them, but also make sure that it does not repeat.

Our hackers are mostly developers, coders or... hackers.


We are the early adopters of new things, either if its a technology, a service or anything that disrupts the current order of the era. We see cool things becoming cool before anyone else does.

Our hipsters are mostly designers, frontend developers or UX/UI enthusiasts.


We are aware that there are apples waiting for us to grab. For that we work hard, even when others think that there is nothing left to grind. We believe in our work and we make others believe that this is real deal.

Our hustlers are mostly Pioneers who want to be in business or marketing side.

I’ve joined Hackquarters Pioneers to gain knowledge about entrepreneurship and to improve myself but it is actually more than that. It is a program which you can improve yourself according to your interest and create ideas with meeting new people who have common point of views as you. At the same time, Pioneers program supports you with internship opportunities and help you gain practical knowledge instead of theory. There are mentors which have different experiences and already built a startup who can grant you valuable experience. I’ve been improving since I’ve joined Pioneers. It is a huge chance to be in this family.
