A group of students from the Department of Industrial and Systems Engineering at Istinye
University visited Turk Telekom Ventures (TTV). Accompanied by Asst. Prof. N. Serhan
Aydin, the students were received by Muhammed Ozhan, CEO of TTV. Also present at the
meeting were 3 managers of TTV with Industrial Engineering backgrounds, namely, Mr.
Salim Yilmaz, Mr. Rasit Turkmen and Mr. Orhan Akyurek, who are in charge of business,
product and strategy development at Turk Telekom (TT).
TTV was established as a wholly owned subsidiary of Turk Telekom Group in February 2018
in order to support the core activities of early / mid stage start-ups which have high growth
potential and synergies with the telecommunications sector, in order to invest directly money
and/or capital in kind to such start-ups and create value from their growth.
During the visit, the students were able to listen from the TTV executives a comprehensive
presentation on their company activities and benefit from their experiences on issues related
to the professional business life. Besides, the potential areas of cooperation between Istinye
University and TTV such as IoT, Smart Cities, Digital Health and Education, Fintech, and
Business Intelligence, were also discussed.
