Background

We aim to secure a facilitating, implementing, inspiring and consultative position in the fields of technology and innovation 

 

by developing models and programs that meet the needs of our corporate agenda.

 

 

Program Activities

TTGV conducts its interactions with external stakeholders through program models that serve as standard interfaces, and that are developed to address the current needs of stakeholders, on four main strategic axes. Each axis represents the organizational capacity and intellectual capital development goals of TTGV, while the program models developed and implemented under the axes make use of the organizational capacity of TTGV.

The current programs ensure TTGV's versatile communication and interaction with its external stakeholders through different thematic interfaces, processes, tools and expert networks with its own brand on the axis on which TTGV is positioned, in line with its objectives. The ability of the models to address needs are evaluated through regular assessments of the program axes, and each program has its own specific corrective activities in line with its needs.

As a part of the ecosystem; TTGV programs which learn by doing and are flexible and impact-and-value-oriented, focus on the development and execution of new models that prioritize diversity and interaction in order to overcome the constraints of knowledge-and-experience sharing that may be caused by the structural asymmetries in the ecosystem. Our programs meet the ecosystem as a result of TTGV's three decades of accumulated experience in program development and execution.

Technology-Focused Community Programs: Ideaport

Ideaport is a TTGV program that is designed to increase the adaptation of the private sector to developing technologies, and in which technology professionals with varying levels of expertise come together around current technology agendas.

Ideaport, Turkey’s first technology-oriented information community, provides suitable platforms where qualified people in Turkey with intellectual knowledge can share their fresh ideas and valuable experiences.

The Ideaport program features a community structure that learns and creates together.

The Ideaport Community examines the determined technology agenda every year under various subheadings on the axes of Sustainability, Productivity & Performance and Digitalization. Ideaport Workshops and Working Groups facilitate discussions of the current use of advanced technologies in Turkey and future emerging opportunities, and produce due diligence and insight outputs. In Ideaport Connect Webinar and Panel events, the latest developments on the Ideaport technology agenda are covered, with different examples presented from Turkey and around the world.

To increase awareness of developments in the field of technology in Turkey, valuable synthesized information related to the information community is further enriched and shared with the technology & innovation ecosystem of Turkey in an easy-to-understand and high-quality form, including Technology Reports, Sectoral Analyses, Infographics and Doodles.

 

Ideaport continues to support its main agenda of the Future of Production with "New Materials & Emerging Technologies in the Future of Production" in 2021. The “New Materials” topic, which was raised in 2020, continues with new material types, while on the other side, the effects of Emerging Technologies on the Future of Production and emerging areas are discussed. You can review the work under the agenda topic and obtain detailed information from the Ideaport website (https://www.ideaport.org.tr/).

Innovation-Oriented Community Programs: Xnovate

Xnovate is a TTGV program that aims to support innovation processes that can create competitive power by disseminating best practices, and developing human resources. 

It provides platforms and tools for the discussion and implementation of new ideas and methods, operating under the slogan “creating together” within a community that learns and improves together, aimed at those who innovate in organizations of various sizes.

In the field of technology and innovation, the Xnovate Program provides individuals with new, unexplored methods and process designs, along with tools that can catalyze the development and dissemination of organizational methods, and practices that can shed light on revolutionary changes in industrial innovation. At the center of the program are innovation-oriented communities of practice.

The Xnovate program, which has been founded based on these values, operates on two main branches. The first seeks to expand the network of communities of practice, as the pioneers of change, and to increase inter-community interaction, providing the necessary platforms and settings for “working together”; and the second develops innovative ideas, methods and methodologies together with volunteers in the network whoconsider progress in technology and innovation their credo.

The Xnovate program has 4 sub-brands: two community structures (Xnovate Circle, Xnovate Fellows) and two sharing platforms (Xnovate LAB, Xnovate Havadis), ensuring that innovation issues can be handled in an efficient and interactive manner. You can find detailed information about the program on the website (https://www.xnovate.org/).

Private Enterprise-Oriented Development Programs: HIT

HIT is a thematic development program that focuses on accelerating the first customer/first sales processes of technology-based early-stage ventures, and is based on TTGV’s own "Venture Development Model".

In the chosen thematic area, needs are identified and roadmaps are determined for the ventures to ensure the concentration of market expertise as projected by the development process in the program.

Expansions into other impact oriented thematic areas (agriculture-food/education/environment) are envisaged in the HIT program, in which health is determined as the first vertical.

In the process of accepting ventures to the program, the following are considered:

  •  The uniqueness of the product/technology, the depth of the underlying knowledge, competitive aspects,
  •  Market demand for the product, need, market size and trend,
  •  The suitability of the team for directing and improvement,
  •  The tangibility of the venture needs that can be improved upon with the program (check-up),
  •  The potential for the development of suitable solutions within TTGV’s means (prescription),
  •  The manageability of the identified risks with the right investor (investment).

Technology Programs for Widespread Impact: Ideanest

For ideas that generate value in areas where technology overlaps with social benefits, but has a hard time finding financing, Ideanest is a TTGV program that aims to raise funds through donation-based crowdfunding for technology-based early-stage product/service ideas, activities that will support the development of the technology and innovation ecosystem, and academic research projects on scientific subjects.

Ideanest is designed as an original implementation of a donation-based crowdfunding concept that supports new ideas. Beyond just providing financing, Ideanest aims to facilitate access to other resources (information, networks, consultation, support in kind, etc.) that project owners need in the ecosystem to be established. Accordingly, in addition to identifying individual and institutional donors, Ideanest also works to attract solution partners to the platform, and supports project owners in financing and in other areas.

To date, funding for 10 projects has been sought through the Ideanest platform, and nine projects have been successfully funded. Visit the website (https://ideanest.org/) to learn more about the non-profit Ideanest platform, which supports the creation of success stories by providing visibility to projects.
