Beyza Güler, Junior Student of Faculty of Business, Izmir University of Economics, has been selected by the Entrepreneurship Foundation to popularise entrepreneurship culture among university students. Güler, who was able to pass the 5 stage program among 6 thousand 400 university students, has ranked among 40 people nationwide.
Güler, who is a scholarship holder of the Foundation established by entrepreneurs, businessmen, and opinion leaders such as Ali Sabancı, Sina Afra, Ümit Boyner, Faruk Eczacıbaşı, Şebnem Kalyoncu Ünlü, will become an entrepreneurship ambassador with trainings she receives from the business world. Güler will guide her friends and benefit from the business experiences at the same time.
Güler indicated that the Entrepreneurship Foundation was established in order to get inspired by entrepreneurial youth and that the youth selected would be supported for one whole year. She said “More than half of the population in our country is young. As the 40 selected students, we will share what we learn with our friends, and acquaintances. We will lead our friends. Our top priority is to popularise entrepreneurship culture among universities. We are the ambassadors of entrepreneurship. We convey what we learn from business people to our acquaintances. We are being raised with entrepreneurship culture here at Izmir University of Economics. That’s why I was very interested in the studies of the Foundation.”
Güler also said that the scholarship holders will attend the World Economic Forum and visit Google campus in San Francisco sometime next year.
