Intel to launch entrepreneurship initiative in Turkish universities

Dünya - The world’s largest semiconductor producer Intel’s Turkish branch plans to launch an initiative to support young entrepreneurs in Turkish universities. Beginning in 2012, Intel will help commercialize bright ideas through providing education and funding, said Intel Turkey’s General Manager Burak Aydin at a press event in Ankara. “Intel Turkey is working to draw more investments to the country and collaborates with the universities to create world-changing technologies,” said Aydin.

Last year, Intel assisted the establishment of R&D labs in Turkey’s Middle East Technical University (METU) by supplying equipment. The company’s investment subsidiary Intel Capital is also active in Turkey. The company bought stakes in two Turkish companies, Grupanya and Nokta in 2011.
