Our Story

Etohum is the most important market place consisting of Turkey’s leading investors, entrepreneurs and internet professionals that both invests in and supports the new economy companies. Since 2008 it has selected hundreds of internet startups and in an effort to help these new startups succeed it has either made investments or brought them together with investors. The advisory and selection board consists of the founders of the leading internet companies in Turkey.

Each year Etohum continues to make one-to-one interviews with entrepreneurs chosen from among 1000s of applications to select the startups that are most suited for investment (see 200820092010). To this end, Etohum organizes over 50 meetings, activities and conferences each year to help form the internet ecosystem. Etohum also plays a leading role in the development of new entrepreneurs by cooperating with universities, techno parks, university clubs and all other relevant companies.

Until today Etohum has broadcast over 500 videos (vimeoetohumtv) and organized almost 150 meetings. It has organized entrepreneurship activities at various cities in Turkey. The activity that will take place at Antalya during February 17 – 18 – 19, 2012 will once again bring together the leading and developing internet companies of Turkey with investors.
