Each year, the Center for Entrepreneurship at Özyeğin University organizes a Corporate Entrepreneurship Conference. The Corporate Entrepreneurship Conference has grown into an annual tradition since 2013, and has so far been organized for four times. As the first of its kind in Turkey, the conference brings together sectoral leaders. The high-level representatives of leading organizations share the innovations they have introduced to achieve competitive advantage; their personal experiences; and the new trends that call into question the existing strategies in order to provide guidance and mentorship to the participants.
The first conference was held on November 21, 2013 with 170 participants from 65 organizations. The second conference took place on October 23, 2014 with 195 participants from 71 organizations. The third conference was organized on October 14, 2015 with 217 participants from 82 organizations. The fourth conference was held on November 23, 2017 with 235 participants from 93 brands.
What is Corporate Entrepreneurship? Corporate Entrepreneurship has become the rising strategy for sustainable growth for corporations both in Turkey and around the world. Corporate Entrepreneurship is a new vantage point adopted by corporations to enable their highly entrepreneurial employees with business/project ideas to develop their projects in a controlled and safe environment.
