Following the presentations, investors came together at the stands where entrepreneurs could offer more information about the projects, which attracted them and they believed they could transform into an industrial product. 

Technology-based projects, which are evaluated under the roof of YEPGEM, are directed to Project investors. Projects requiring laboratory work are followed up by universities and TUBITAK. When the fund and production is required later on, it is transformed into a product by providing fund and production support, and finally it is evaluated in the trade and industry field. Thus, a work produced by an entrepreneur reaches to its last user. Inventions of entrepreneurs will be put into practice as a value reached up to the last user by means of the YEPGEM’s guidance and support for these projects. YEPGEM may be considered as a center where dreams come true.
