Vodafone Turkey Senior Manager Engin Aksoy said, “We have once again joined forces with TOBB to accelerate the adaptation of SMEs to digital marketing and e-commerce.”
Turkey Union of Chambers and Commodity Exchanges (TOBB) and Vodafone Business, contributing to the digitalization of SMEs through organizations such as ‘Turkey Technology Meetings’ and ‘Digital Transformation Movement’, joined forces for the ‘Turkey 100’ program, where Turkey’s fastest-growing 100 companies were determined.
According to the Vodafone statement, Vodafone Business sponsored the 7th program to be organized this year under the leadership of TOBB, in cooperation with the Turkey Economic Policy Research Foundation (TEPAV) and the Union of Chambers and Commodity Exchanges of Turkey (TOBB ETU). Vodafone Business will offer the ‘Data-Oriented SMS’ solution to all businesses that apply for the program, and the ‘E-Commerce Service Package’ along with ‘Facebook and Instagram Advertising Service’ to the top 100 businesses in the program. With these free products and services, Vodafone Business will benefit the businesses that participate in the ‘Turkey 100’ program and win the program, with a total value of ₺12 million.
Vodafone Turkey Senior Manager (CEO) Engin Aksoy stated in the statement that they have an important role in social transformation as a company that touches every segment of the society with its products and services.
“SMEs also have a share in the social transformation we target. SMEs, which are the lifeblood of Turkey’s economy, make up 99.9% of the total businesses. We see these businesses as part of our goal-oriented stance to prepare them for the digital world of the future. We have once again joined forces with TOBB to accelerate the adaptation of SMEs to digital marketing and e-commerce. We will contribute to the ‘Turkey 100’ program, which we sponsor, with free support packages that we will offer for SMEs. We will benefit the enterprises that participate and win within the scope of TOBB Turkey 100 program in total worth ₺12 million. With this cooperation, we want to show that we stand by our SMEs on the way to digitalization with our technological power. If our SMEs win, all of Turkey wins. Under the roof of Vodafone Business, we will continue to support the growth of SMEs with our digital solutions.”

Vodafone Business has also prepared a support package for tradesmen and SMEs. Accordingly, all tradesmen and SMEs who want to benefit from the support package, regardless of whether they are Vodafone customers or not, will be offered free digital marketing consultancy for 3 months.

In this way, it will be easier for these companies to access new partners, customers and suppliers.
