A look inside Turkey’s startup scene



Turkey’s largest Internet exits to date have been food ordering marketplace Yemeksepeti, which was acquired by Delivery Hero for $589 million in May 2015, Gittigidiyor, which was acquired by its global counterpart eBay for $217 million in April 2011, and mobile enterprise development house Pozitron, which was acquired by Monetise for $100 million in February 2014.
