About us

TTGV was founded in 1991 as a public-private cooperation to bring together technology and the real world by providing support for private-sector technology and innovation activities in Turkey.

We are the only example of a “non-profit intermediary/implementing agency” model in Turkey, widely acknowledged and well-recognized in the developed ecosystems around the world, especially in the European Union.

Among the seven foundations established in Turkey by law, TTGV is the only one operating in the field of technology and innovation.

Since we aim at diversifying and extending the scale of our activities by using revenues that we derive from the provision of our services to generate new resources, we have a profile similar to that of a “non-profit business” model.

Our Founders’ Committee has 56 members, representing reputable entities in Turkey, including public institutions, private sector institutions, chambers, associations, foundations and private individuals.

Our Board of Directors has 15 members, including 10 members elected from among the members of the Founders’ Committee representing the private sector, and five members appointed by the institutions and organizations defined in our Articles of Foundation.
