Execution Experience

Tart became an expert in Internet technologies in the last 14 years. Created one of the first e-commerce platforms in Turkey. Realized and gamified the world's first "social betting" platform. Developed an online game platform for the largest Internet provider in Turkey.

Tart established intense business relations with a lot of industry giants and earned unparalleled experience as what we call a "kitchen for the new media".

Tart culture

Tart culture aims to create and cherish the Silicon Valley culture in its own ecosystem.

This is a culture where every task is fulfilled with extreme care, innovation and speed in accordance with the work ethics the Silicon Valley culture promotes. Repetitive success is regular. This is a culture created by people with hundreds of successful projects, by people who now want to make an impact on the world with innovative ideas and sharing the wisdom.

The place that cherishes ideas

To plant hopes and spread the idea about Turkey that we can be “the Tech Valley” in MENA, Tart embarked on organizing summer camp trainings for new graduates.

With these camps Tart became a home for people who are after fulfilling their potential and value innovation. Tart enlightened the path for these individuals and through them, the whole industry.

The place that cultivates ideas

Now is the time to widen the perspective, to share the wisdom gained in the previous camps with more people. Tart opens its doors to new talents, with a big sign that reads Startup Kitchen on it.

Moulded with the Tart culture, bright minds that are enriched with years of experience and challenged with innovative projects take on an epic, new journey.

Below are some of the ideas that we executed.
