Burak Büyükdemir, founder of etohum, talked thus on the event: “2010 will be the year of the new Internet companies. The companies that are founded on recession periods are able to organize their business processes more efficiently than their competitors. At etohum, we believe that these companies will grow very rapidly, after the crisis has been overcome. Most of the Internet entrepreneurs founded during the 2001 crisis have become large-scale companies. And now they lead the new Internet entrepreneurs. Companies founded in those times, such as yemeksepeti and GittiGidiyor, support the new entrants and share their experience with them through etohum. In addition, a huge increase has been achieved in the user number, due to the proliferation of the high-access Internet service in Turkey. As a result, Internet has become part of the daily life. Many foreign Internet websites have been flooded by Turkish users. Many companies plan to shift its advertising expenses towards Internet. Therefore, Internet companies founded in Turkey are expected to be the favorite of investors in 2010.”
