How startups thrive in emerging markets

Rina Onur who leads 500 Startups’ investments in Turkey, recently wrote a TechCrunch piece called “How startups thrive in emerging markets”.

The piece provides a great overview of the types of startups that we see in Turkey, the resilience that they’ve shown in a politically and economically challenging 2016, and why 500 is investing in the country.

Rina concludes by stating that she is “very optimistic that in the next decade there will be numerous centaurs and hopefully a few unicorns that emerge from Turkey¬†and Turkish entrepreneurs.” We agree.
