To ignite BODRUM’S ECONOMY, create a vibrant, young (non-seasonal) sustainable startup eco-system on the Bodrum peninsula, attracting startups, investors, mentors and building a co-working, collaborative and co-operating local community. To implement this vision, we developed a series of events including a Bodrum ThinkTank dedicated to creating solutions for Bodrum’s problems of today and to predict and prevent future challenges.

Quote Mehmet Kocadon

Mehmet Kocadon mayor of Bodrum and executive sponsor of this event stated during the kickoff that he sees this event as a start for a new ecosystem in Bodrum where Students, Investors, Entrepeneurs and Bodrum existing companies are coming together to solve major challenges Bodrum facing now and in the future. This will be a recurring event and has the potential to become a "little Davos" with a Bodrum ThinkTank to lead this new ideas into Bodrum economy
