Netas Wesley Clover Technology Fund (NWCTF)
As the leading system integrator of Turkey and an R&D experience proven on a global scale, we have created a platform so that new technologies can be developed, interact and create enterprises to gain value together.
Under our partnership with Wesley Clover, the company of the Canadian investor Sir Terrence H. Matthews, Netaş Wesley Clover Technology Fund aims to invest on early-stage companies and entrepreneurs and support value-added high technology projects. The fund has realized a very important investment model for Turkey and today a platform has been created where nearly 900 engineers have focused on innovation and successful companies have joined forces.
Our fund incorporated its first entrepreneurs in early 2014. Our innovative and entrepreneur young team have spent a month in Canada with Terry and his staff to examine the operating model and develop ideas before starting its preparations. Today the fund includes a total of 7 companies.
One of these companies,
Pisano, designed a web-based customer interaction platform, where companies can instantly contact customers and vice versa to establish communication when necessary.
Iven, develops inter-machine (IoT) communication solutions in order to increase company efficiency, reduce costs and decrease market release durations of products. Iven entered the North American market in 2016.
Startsub, created a platform serving box subscription services. Vendors in this platform contact with customers with the “Box Membership Service”.
English Ninjas offers an online platform to its users to improve their English speaking skills through 24/7 practice availability with native English speakers. Its users can speak with tutors anytime on their mobile device, can prefer audio or video calls, and take free speech or curriculum lessons, for a monthly fee.
Segmentify is an e-commerce personalization platform that helps online retailers to optimize their conversion rates by enabling them to deliver a unique shopping experience for each visitor.
Segmentify creates a unique online shopping experience that is relevant to each visitor by utilizing advanced machine learning technology. A unique online shopping experience comes from making each shopper feel special and engaging with them individually. Hence, it is an abandon of the traditional ‘one-size-fits-all’ approach.
Segmentify can be integrated with any online store in just one day by adding a single line of JS code – no IT team required. Personalization campaigns go live on the second day and 10% additional revenue is generated within two weeks.
Segmentify’s primary differentiation point is replacing current traditional approaches based on bulk and batch processing with a real-time approach, which is responsive to trend changes.
About 50 engineers are employed in those 7 companies. With NWCTF, Netaş not only aims to provide opportunity to young people to develop new technology, but to create a platform for mentoring, providing opportunity to open to international markets and reaching long-term goals.
