Teknofest Istanbul Firms Up Turkey’s National Technology Initiative 
24.09.2018

TEKNOFEST, Turkey’s first aerospace and technology festival, took place at the Istanbul Grand Airport on September 20-23, bringing together about half a million technology enthusiasts from across the globe.

 

Invest in Turkey was one of the various sponsors of the event that included rocket and hacker competitions, speed races of some of the fastest vehicles, aeronautical shows, the World Drone Cup—a drone speed race with participants from 25 countries—,  the Take Off International Startup Summit—attracting over 2000 competitors— and exposing the attendees to never-seen-before technologies.

 

Speaking at TEKNOFEST on September 22, President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan emphasized the importance of technology, stating that the first condition of independence in today’s world is to become a country that designs, develops, produces, and exports technology. Following his speech, President Erdoğan presented awards to the winners of the technology competitions.

 

The head of Invest in Turkey Arda Ermut participated as a panelist on the “Role of Governments and International Organizations in Empowering Youth Entrepreneurship Towards Sustainable Growth” session at the Take Off International Startup Summit.
