Abstract

Innovation is a critical concept for both today's national economies and institutions. In this context, innovation is needed to ensure regional and national sustainable growth, to establish competitiveness and to improve the current level of welfare. When we look at the supports and investments made for technology-based entrepreneurs in our country, public and private sector supports, incubation centers and acceleration program activities are seen. In this study, an analysis of the current situation of early stage support of technology based initiatives in our country has been made. In order to collect the necessary information and data for the research, a questionnaire study was directed to a total of 80 technology companies, venture capital investment funds and academician companies operating in Informatics Valley, which is not a university-supported institution in Turkey.
