InnoCampus Startup Accelerator Program

Gaziantep University, Gaziantep. 17 February–10 May 2017

Program Outputs

We started our Gaziantep Program with InnoCampus Startup Weekend which we organized in Gaziantep University on 17-19 February2017. 14 teams made up of 20 refugees and 20 Turkish entrepreneurs worked on their business ideas for 48 hours with little sleep. At the end of the event, the teams presented their ideas to the jury which selected the 10 of the 14 teams to participate in the InnoCampus Gaziantep Startup Accelerator Program.

Throughout the program, 10 teams and 29 participants have received 90+ hours of entrepreneurship trainings from specialist trainers. InnoCampus Gaziantep Startup Accelerator Program has ended after 9 weeks with the Demo Day in Gaziantep University on 10th of May. 10 teams have presented their business ideas to jury.

Among the business ideas in the program there are; mobile diet application, combining traditional crafts with new designs and techniques, smart home systems with IoT applications, robotics training for children, alternative energy sources to be installed on the roads, e-commerce platform for wholesale clothing, city plan and mapping services.

Some of the other key achievements of the program apart from the entrepreneurship trainings is building a common language and creating an international environment which has established integration and close friendships between the refugee and local participants.
