Presentation of the exchange:
I am a graduate of TOBB Economy and Technology University and hold a BA degree in Economy. After my graduation, I started working as a freelance on marketing and advertising. Working on international projects has always been my dream and once I realized Erasmus for Young Entrepreneurs program, I applied immediately with my business plan. Thanks to EYE program I had the chance to carry out my exchange in Italy at ODU Movies where I spent 3 months from 21.09.2015 to 19.12.2015. During these 3 months, I found the opportunity to enhance my know-how on production sector and developed a business network which would help to expand my horizon. In my opinion Italy offers unique business opportunities owing to its similar Mediterranean culture. Moreover, throughout my stay, I established corporate identity my company named Pin Idea. I would like underline that Italy, as a preference of location, contributed to get us closer to our dreams since it provided the opportunity to transfer European culture to Pin Idea’s vision. Thanks to this vision we are now providing marketing services to our customers based on social media Together with Host Entrepreneur, Ivano Fucci, owner of ODU Movies, we are aiming to carry out successful business and develop business between Turkey and Italy.
