ONE OF THE BIGGEST INVESTMENTS

This will have very important outputs. We have very important documents. We will do the work required by this cooperation.” IT Valley General Manager Ahmet Serdar Ibrahimcioglu said that the energy production of the 2,619 panels given as a gift is approximately 1 megawatt, and this will meet half of the energy needs of all entrepreneurs in the valley.
WE HAVE 2 THOUSAND EMPLOYEES
Kubra Kalyoncu Seherli, who said that she named IT Valley as Turkey’s Silicon Valley, also said at the workshop: “There were only four walls here 8 months before opening the factory. There was neither a machine nor an employee. Only 16 people were doing standard work. At the point we have reached today, we have approximately two thousand employees and an R&D team of 100 people.”
