“One of the most important indicators of growth of a country's economy is its investments in the field of intellectual and industrial rights. In order to increase our country's global competitiveness and brand value in the future, we must raise awareness and prepare our young people for the new world order. Our country needs everyone who has Labor, inventions, ideas more. Therefore, we say "Own Your Idea" to our companies and entrepreneurs who carry out their commercial activities with products and services. Especially our young entrepreneurs who are interested in making inventions and who are excited to create a new product or brand need to know how to protect their rights both in Turkey and anywhere in the world. With this project, we have revealed that we are the biggest supporters of all our young people who want to move their ideas into the future. We believe we have a lot to do, and we want to make the patent concept a part of our lives.”
