Operating in the field of mobility, Turkey’s global technology brand Togg is taking the Mobility Acceleration Program, which it implemented in our country together with Bilişim Vadisi, to the international arena.
Collaborating with Plug and Play, an innovation platform with 400 corporate partners in the heart of the Silicon Valley as well as in 4 continents, 20 countries and 39 offices, Togg will guide start-ups with its international Mobility Acceleration Program.
Togg, create sustainable value with start-ups
Within the scope of the program, global entrepreneurs will be supported in all areas of need such as mentoring, financial consultancy and project support. Togg will also become a member of STARTUP AUTOBAHN, an open innovation platform supported by Plug and Play, and will undertake an active role in the field of mobility together with global players.
Speaking about the cooperation announced at the STARTUP AUTOBAHN Expo 2022 held in Stuttgart, Germany, Togg CEO M. Gürcan Karakaş stated that start-ups are a very important part of new technology solutions in the mobility ecosystem and said,
“Companies relied heavily on their own R&D units 5-10 years ago, but with start-ups, technological innovation has reached an unprecedented speed. Taking bold steps with agile business models, start-ups act rapidly, transforming businesses. Start-ups also play a critical role in shaping the mobility ecosystem. While the industry creates a window of opportunity for new players to emerge, collaborations with new players allow us to create sustainable value.
The ‘Mobility Acceleration Program’, which we will implement with Plug and Play, is an important step we have taken to support start-ups, a very important element of the ecosystem. We are Europe’s truly rare mobility ecosystem application platform. In June, we participated in Vivatech, Europe’s largest technology and start-up event, and conveyed our start-up approach.
We had the opportunity to take the pulse of start-ups with Mobility Park by Togg, which was the main focus of the event. As a company preparing for global competition, we will continue to be involved in all kinds of efforts that will improve the mobility ecosystem not only in our country but also in the international arena.”
Plug and Play Turkey Director Lale Gözübüyük also commented on the cooperation: “Togg aims to be much more than an automobile. The world’s largest innovation platform, Plug and Play will be happy and proud to share with Togg on this long journey its experience, which encompasses not only global automotive companies but many other sectors, mainly mobility, as well as the opportunities it has developed.”
