Due to the recent economic downturn and political tensions international investors tend to reduce their exposure. However, investment appetite seems to be picking up again. Startups received $59,2 million from angels and venture capital funds. Top 3 funded startups were online marketing management platform Insider, online accounting services provider Foriba and online furniture store Vivense. Trendyol, OpsGenie, and Gram Games made the biggest exits in 2018 Earlybird, Hummingbird, and 3TS have Turkey dedicated funds. Revo Capital, Bogazici Ventures and ACT Capital Partners are among the most active local venture capital firms. Aslanoba is the country’s first super angel with $60 million seed and early-stage investments in startups. Galata Business Angels also established the first angel network.
