We participated in the Visa Innovation Program. We had a chance to get support from many mentors, especially the Visa Turkey team. After being selected as one of the 5 Turkish FinTech startups, we took the first steps to improve our payment infrastructure with the support of the Visa team. Visa has brought us forward, especially in the partnerships we are trying to get into.
Hackquarters is not a traditional start-up accelerator. It bridges the gaps between corporations and start-ups and helps to navigate your way for creating value for every party involved. Both as an early stage and an established start-up, I follow Hackquarters for local and global opportunities. Joining BNP Paribas Cardif program for InsurTech powered by Hackquarters provided a chance to scale globally and to collaborate with a worldwide partner.
We are inspired to create value for all the startups who apply to our programs. As the value and benefit might be different for every founder, we've created the Startup Spotlight, where startups can promote themselves via Hackquarters eco-system roughly 30.000 people.
