WE ARE CHANGING THE FUNDAMENTALS OF THE WAY SECTOR CONDUCTS BUSINESS WITH YAPI TECH GARAGE
In the last 15-20 years, the entrepreneurial perspective and works based on big data has changed the way business is done in many sectors fundamentally. The building sector is one of the sectors which benefited less from these innovations, that is why the way business is conducted in the sector is based on traditional methods and it leaves a great potential for innovation.  In the same way, despite the fact that they are able to create outcomes which would transform the companies greatly, the entrepreneurs are having a difficult time coming together with the sector and explaining themselves. In order to fill this gap in the sector, as Yapı – Turkeybuild Istanbul, we are bringing together the STARTUPS (tech-enterprises) with the Building sector through the YAPI TECH GARAGE Platform developed in collaboration with Demet Demirer, “the Architect of Change”. 

The STARTUPS will introduce their technologies related to subjects such as BIM, smart construction materials, virtual reality, enhanced reality, management systems, mobile building applications, 3D construction on this platform from the stage of design to the point where the building is completed and handed over, which provide numerous opportunities for the architects, engineers, project managers, manufacturers, contractors, developers, marketers, and users. While it is possible to learn about new materials and technologies on this platform, it is aimed that the outcomes that might make a difference for the companies which seek solution to their problems in foreign markets due to a shrinking building economy are secured.

On the other hand, exhibitors and visitors will have the chance to experience the presentations and product demos carried out by these startups on Yapı Tech Experience Zone.
