FAQ

Where will the trainings take place?

All the trainings will take place in Bilkent Cyberpark.


Do we have to form a team to apply to the program?

No. The teams will be formed once the trainings start with the help of the UTTP management team.

If you already have a project team and want to apply together please fill in separate application forms for each team member using the team member application form and fill in the entrepreneur application form for one of the team members. Please provide the names of the team members in the entrepreneur application form. Applying as a team does not mean that all the team members will be accepted to the program. After the selection process, only a part of the team can be selected for the program.
