Beyond Borders Turkey

About the Project

Beyond Borders Turkey is a program carried out in partnership with TOBB, Habitat and Hackquarters. The project aims to increase the digital skills of small to medium scale businesses in Istanbul and increase their success in exportation.

During a 4-week training period with 10 different start dates within a year, an average of 50 business members in each group will receive trainings focusing on both the use of Facebook products and the basic needs in other areas. At the end of the program, participants will be supported in developing and implementing online export strategies. At the end of this 4-week training, each business strategy will be presented to a jury and the winning businesses will have the opportunity to implement their strategies in the presence of trainers.
