We were very busy in New York last month:)

Smartup Network’s Smart Team members were busy attending a number of events in New York last month. We partook in the Startup Cities events, a series of events which focus on creating new cities and innovating existing ones. It was certainly a great learning experience given that the majority of humans live in urban areas and billions more will be in the coming decades. Seeing familiar faces at the Turkish Philanthropy Funds’ Entrepreneurship & Innovation Summit event while discussing global issues was a warm experience despite the weather in NYC. TPF is a community foundation which tackles the most crucial social challenges through its 50+ partner NGOs on the ground. Their four main focus areas are Gender Equality, Education, Social and Economic Development and Disaster Relief. During the Innovation Summit, business leaders, entrepreneurs, academics and young professionals gathered under one roof with the motivation to make a change with technology! We listened and learned a lot ! Now is to time to innovate together:)
