With the intention of hosting a huge event based on the topic of entrepreneurship to spark inspiration in the brilliant minds of our community, we organized IzmirUp together with the Turkish Entrepreneurship Foundation, a.k.a GIRVAK.
With this exciting and insightful community event, our primary purpose was to encourage our ecosystem’s young and unique talents to learn more about starting a new business and cultivating their entrepreneurial skills. So, as Atolye15, we were honored to take part in the creation of a platform that welcomed 13 successful entrepreneurs who shared their experiences, as well as the challenges they faced along the way to enlighten the people who are interested in kickstarting a business that would stand out from the rest. In the end, IzmirUp became a much-loved community event that embraced and spread our team’s giveback culture.
In 2018, we held our 4th conference on web and mobile technologies in Izmir with more than a thousand attendees. And we loved sharing this massive platform with 5 impressive speakers who embrace the giveback culture we all live by as a team. So, it was an honor for us to share what we know and have meaningful discussions on topics relating to PHP, NodeJS, Python, Ruby, React, Angular, Sketch, Figma, and many more in front of the enthusiasts of the community.
As Atolye15, we love organizing events to bring the whole ecosystem together and solidify our bonds. And one of our favorite ways to do that is through our technical conferences, where we share our knowledge and industry experience and encourage others to do the same. Because we can only rise by lifting others.
Every year, we organize end-of-year kickoff events where we talk business and enjoy each other’s company in the most relaxing settings. This year too, we rallied our team to bid farewell to the past year and set the tone for the upcoming one. But we didn’t want to do it in our office or through our screens virtually. So instead, we chose a winery!
We are always fond of hosting events to support our community with our years’ worth of accumulated knowledge and experience. But we also love organizing team events that are just for us too! And at these exclusive events, like Kickoff’19, our focus heavily lies on bringing our remote team closer and making our bonds stronger as we delve deep into the topic of teamwork.
