Embracing start-ups and makers through networking and services

Stage-Co is a growing community platform around start-ups and makers. We connect them with, academics, investors and mentors in order to create a vibrant and successful environment. As Stage-Co we focus strongly on co-working, collaboration and co-creation and ignite the local start-up potential.

Starting with Stage-Co Platform we organize in several cities meetups, on a regular basis, with 1 topic and 2 or 3 speakers. We try to find local successes and combine this with more established speakers. The topics are related to start-ups, makers, innovation and technology but most off all we try to be inspirational and engaging. After the talks and discussions we provide extended time for networking. Today we are active in Turkey and starting soon in other cities in other countries.
Stage-Co started in April 2013 with to aim to unite and disrupt at the same time. All initiatives that were planned had only one goal, being the platform where the ecosystem of starters and makers could connect and grow. This resulted in the following set up:

 

Stage-Co Platform: the community based on chapters and meetups. Regular Meetups in 5 cities. Focus on exchange, inspire, networking with Open Pitch Hour for start-ups.
Stage-Co Masters: the training program starting with a Mentorship training for mentors to become skilled mentors. The training programs are scheduled on a regular base with a minimum of participants before starting. Other training sessions will be announced.
Stage-Co Mature: a pre-seed and seed program that enables start-ups to grow towards a stage they are ready for the next step, being an investment round or go to the market.
