Start Me Up

General description

I have a great idea for you: Spending a week in Istanbul (5th-12th January 2016) with amazing people, having amazing parties and getting golden-valued information about one of the most popular and essential topics, start-ups. We invite all besties to join us in our first course to have this excitement together, which electrifies us with no doubt. Join us to get all these unforgettable memories in 5th largest city of the world, where the continents meet and capital of many civilizations, Istanbul!

The extreme speed of enhancement in technology triggered many new areas to work and made people that they have high variety of different needs to fulfill. Correspondingly, some brave entrepreneurs founded new-born firms called “start-ups”. Those firms have relatively very high chance compared to a baby firm founded in a hundred years ago trying to have a big steak in its area due to that place technology has come and its significant advantages especially in marketing and communication. Hence, it’s just the correct time to create a start-up due to all this circumstances.

Isn’t it everybody’s dream to be the boss of yourself and having the liberty of making all the decisions of your own company? Getting the major incomes and managing all the people trying to expand your “baby” with you? Maybe in long-term, but maybe in a very short period of time it will grow and become an arbiter of the sector. These are not dreams; on the contrary these are highly probable when you simply know to use all the fruits of our age.

This course is going to improve all your skills, provide huge amount of information and give all the tactics relevant to start-ups. It would be cliché to write “if you are …, then this course is definitely for you”. However; this course is for EVERYBODY, because we definitely want every bestie to have a comprehensive knowledge of that area of opportunities, that area which enables to change everyone’s life significantly.
