What is Startup Istanbul?
Startup Istanbul is a leading startup event hosted in Turkey. The event brings together founders, investors and executives in the region. Organised by Etohum, a startup accelerator, Startup Istanbul is a gathering of the leading startups, Internet companies, business angels and venture capitalists from Asia and Europe.
This year, the Startup Istanbul Challenge will hold on 19 – 22 October 2018.
As a participant, Publiseer will be privy to a few perks. First, it gets 3 tickets for its founders and team members. The team also gets 3 tickets for a boat tour of the Bosphorous. Publiseer also gets a Startup Booth to showcase its service offerings. The startup also gets privy to 3 webinars before the event, a one-to-one pitching training, and a tour of the Istanbul Technical University Technopark.
Also on the cards for Publiseer is a how-to workshop on establishing a company in Turkey. The startup also gets a huge exposure to the 500 startups, 500 investors and 4000 attendees at this year’s event.
Publiseer won’t be the first African or even Nigerian company to participate in a Startup Istanbul event. Last year, a Nigerian FinTech company, Advancio Interactive, won the Challenge; and way back in 2015, Kenyan startup Nims won the challenge.
Publiseer Continues to Record More Growth
Publiseer’s selection into Startup Istanbul comes at a very interesting time for the company.
Just recently, the company released impressive stats in its financial report for the first quarter of 2018. The company made over N3,921,367 ($10,877.58) profit in that quarter alone. It also got licenses for over 200 new releases and plans to get more deals in both audio and digital book publishing.
