Microsoft, in cooperation with Abu Dhabi Investment Office (ADIO), started to get start-up applications from Turkey for the GrowthX Accelerator program. The aim here is to create new opportunities for start-ups and to develop new projects that will offer solutions to corporate companies experiencing various difficulties, contributing to the growth of the digital economy and reaching the target in terms of technology and market access with the GrowthX Accelerator in B2B model.

Within the scope of this program, demos, physical and virtual workshops will be held. At these events, Start-ups will introduce themselves to Microsoft’s customers and investors in this region. At the end of these 12-week events, 15 start-ups that solve their corporate partner’s problems in the most accurate and effective way will be identified by Microsoft.
2020 went down in history as a year in which start-ups took off, especially in Turkey.

Münir Kundakçı, Executive Vice President of Marketing and Operations at Microsoft Turkey, expressed his views on the program as follows; “Turkey is a dynamic and innovative country. When the latest technologies come together with our young population, an extremely favorable climate for entrepreneurship emerges. 2020 went down in history as a year in which start-ups took off, especially in Turkey. GrowthX Accelerator has the feature of being a wide-framed development program that offers the tools, training opportunities, and connections that start-ups need in this direction. In addition to adding value to the Turkish entrepreneurial ecosystem, we also aim to produce exemplary projects for the world as a result of the collaborations.”
