Quote from the Mayor of Bodrum

“A little Davos in Bodrum” said Ahmet Aras, the Mayor of Bodrum and executive sponsor of the second event stated during the kick-off that he sees this event as a start for a new ecosystem in Bodrum where Start-ups, Investors, Entrepreneurs and Subject Matter Experts are coming together to solve major challenges which we are facing now and in the future. This will be a recurring event and has the potential to become a "little Davos in Bodrum" with a Think Tank to develop new ideas into Bodrum's start-up ecosystem.
