Technology focus areas for the investment fund include enterprise communications and business applications, mobile integration, cross-platform media and business intelligence applications. We support the entrepreneurs with whom we work with the following hard and soft advantages.
The Alacrity Turkey management and mentoring team has extensive international R&D, commercialization and entrepreneurship expertise, and we have adapted an investment model which was fine-tuned over 40 years by a very successful serial entrepreneur and his colleagues.
Partnerships with the best universities in Turkey help us recruit the brightest young entrepreneurs with the most innovative new ideas for our start-ups. We provide these new grads with the funding, environment and guidance they require to see their ideas mature into viable, investable companies that leverage today’s and tomorrow’s technologies.
Customer problem identification is central to developing high market-value products. The Alacrity Turkey fund focuses on this market-driven demand to enable start-up growth and ongoing deal-flow.
One of the most significant issues with turning start-ups into success stories is commercializing the resulting products. Alacrity Turkey start-ups gain early access to key customer engagement opportunities and strong sales channels for their potential products through our strategic partners.
