KOSGEB (Small and Medium-Sized Enterprises Development and Support Administration) is a public institution that offers various support programs to small and medium-sized enterprises in Turkey. KOSGEB aims to encourage the development of these enterprises, increase their competitiveness and increase employment.

KOSGEB support programs may include services in business development, innovation, technological product development, training, consultancy, and many more. These programs aim to help SMEs increase their competitiveness. Details of support programs and application processes are published on the official website of KOSGEB.

On the https://www.kosgeb.gov.tr/site/tr/genel/destekler/6312/girisimcilik-destekleri website, you can review the options that are suitable for you, such as the Traditional Entrepreneur Support Program and the Advanced Entrepreneur Support Program. The point you need to pay attention to here is that, in general, you prepare your project for your business, and the institution makes supports such as your work-related expenses or machine purchases after spending on you. Another thing you need to pay attention to is that, generally, you need to have an Advanced Entrepreneurship Certificate or Traditional Entrepreneurship Certificate before you start your company. KOSGEB may expect you to have experience in the past years regarding the support you request.

In order to get up-to-date and detailed information about KOSGEB supports in Turkey, I recommend you to visit the official website of KOSGEB and take a look at the details of the mentioned programs. Supports and support figures are updated regularly. KOSGEB’s website will provide you with up-to-date information about application processes, support programs and requirements.
