It is the start-up era without a doubt. Whether you look at its numbers or the interest it receives, it certainly is the age of startups. These startups have branched into all sorts of sectors, traditional and modern.
The wave of startups started in the West, but soon Arab initiators and entrepreneurs joined in. They started their own businesses and entered into the world of startups, whether to escape the havoc of traditional jobs or because of the large sums of money being invested in these startups, especially in the technology sector.
But there are several obstacles between Arab entrepreneurs and their dreams. The most important of these is that the Arab environment in general still lacks the necessary expertise to support this sector of business, which deprives it of major deals except in very rare cases.
One of the obstacles is the lack of a qualified and experienced teams to manage this type of business, whether in business or management, or at the technical level as well as marketing. This is why many wonderful ideas fail while young.
Based on this need, Takwin was established in 2016 to support entrepreneurship in Istanbul, and has set in motion the establishment of supporting entities for startups in the Arab world.
The company works to support entrepreneurs, ideas and initiatives in achieving their ambitions through a variety of expertise that help them, from studying the feasibility of their ideas for implementation, market size, planning and product design, to execution and marketing, providing the necessary advice and guidance even after the product is launched.
