Collecting data and working on the paper parts were the most important for me. I had the opportunity to use researching tools and learn more about the entrepreneurship and innovation ecosystem of the city I live in. With its social aspect, research empowered me to manage data.

This research project broadened my horizons after I came back to Istanbul I started analyzing the innovation ecosystem as I spent time in “ATÖLYE”, “Kolektif House”(https://www.kolektifhouse.co/en/), “Impacthub” (http://impacthubist.net), and “Startershub”(https://www.startershub.org). I talked with entrepreneurs from all disciplines and met with a lot of people who work in thriving startups.
