Car4Future Looks to Fuel Rise of Electric Vehicles in Turkey

IZMIR, TURKEY – Car4Future, a startup that facilitates the charging of electric cars via an app, captured first prize at the national finals of the Entrepreneurship World Cup competition held recently in Turkey.

Its founder, Oguzhan Saritas, won a trip to the next round of the global competition against national winners from 184 countries.

Car4Future uses blockchain technology to allow users of electric vehicles to find charging stations and to enable charging station owners to share their stations to generate revenue.

In preparation for the EWC Global Finals, Oguzhan Saritas and his team will participate in an acceleration program which features virtual training and one-to-one mentoring targeted to their company’s current stage and growth trajectory.

Car4Future emerged victorious from a pool of 441 contestants – each receiving access to free virtual training services to help them take their venture to the next level.

More than 102,000 contestants from 184 countries entered the Entrepreneurship World Cup. The initiative combines a broad-reaching pitch competition, aimed at ventures ranging from the idea stage to growth stage, with a virtual accelerator program to help all participants launch, strengthen and scale their enterprises. Global Finalists will face off against one another at the Misk Global Forum ahead of Global Entrepreneurship Week in November 2019.

EWC is an initiative led by the Global Entrepreneurship Network and Misk Global Forum with support from a collection of national and global partners, including the Global Educational and Leadership Foundation and GSVlabs.
