Contributor, The Memo

About our guest Investor: Murat Aktihanoglu (and it’s pronounced Akti-han-o-lu, in case you were wondering; in Turkish, the ‘g’ is always silent) is a computer scientist, entrepreneur, investor and author. He is the co-founder and Managing Director at ERA (http://eranyc.com), an early-stage investment fund and technology accelerator in New York City with a portfolio of 139+ and growing companies since 2011, (and we’re proud to have been selected as one of the first mentors for the program).

We’re hosting Murat again, as ERA is now accepting applications for its Winter 2018 NYC Accelerator Program, so we want you to have an opportunity to meet him, and get your questions answered. ERA invests $100K in seed funding and gives entrepreneurs access to NYC’s leading mentor network and community, including exposure to 350+ industry leaders and 139 alumni companies. The accelerator works with companies intensively throughout the 4 month program, and continues to support them all the way through an exit. Since 2011, ERA Alumni have raised $250M and grown to more than $1.3B in combined valuation. Deadline: Nov. 6th, Program Start: Jan 8th. Apply here: https://www.eranyc.com/apply/

FYI, Murat is also the founder of Entrepreneurs Roundtable, a non-profit that helps entrepreneurs and startups in New York, Turkey, Japan, S.Korea, Norway, Ireland and more. Which means that he travels a lot and we’re lucky that he found the time to grace us with his presence, and expertise: he is also a Mentor at New York City Venture Fellows Program; Advisor at Think Beyond Plastic Innovation Forum; Partner for US State Department's Global Entrepreneurship Program; and Advisor to The Startup Foundation, MIT Enterprise Forum New York, Girls In Tech, and Turkish Women's International Network.
