My new role at Aslanoba Capital

This is the first post that I’m writing in my new role at Aslanoba Capital, where I manage the angel investments of Hasan Aslanoba. Although Hasan made his first investment in a Turkish tech startup less than six months ago, his pace has already made him the leading angel investor in the country. So far, he has invested over $13M in 14 startups, and there is an even greater pipeline in the making.

I knew that I had to work with Hasan when he shared his vision for the Turkish startup ecosystem with me less than a month ago. While Hasan and I both believe in the material wealth that will be created by Turkish tech startups in the short, medium, and long term, we are equally driven by the unique opportunity that we have to encourage entrepreneurship as a mindset, and a viable career path, in Turkey. We recognize that we have a long way to go, and that there are many obstacles along the way, but are confident that our hard work and persistence will pay off. Our first two weeks working together have gone by at a breathtaking pace, but this is what happens when you’re on an impactful mission.
