Turkey Entrepreneurship Strategy & Action Plan by KOSGEB
Entrepreneurship is a far and wide area of policy which interacts with other policy areas. Entrepreneurship policies, which used to be considered in the past as an “extension” to SME policies, have gradually started today to be considered as a separate policy area.
Strategies and action plans oriented to develop and improve entrepreneurship and SMEs in Turkey are included in the KOBİ (Small and Medium Size Enterprises) Strategy and Action Plan (KSAP). Examining global practices, it can be observed that entrepreneurship gradually occupies a more important space in development strategies. The EU Progress report, Global Entrepreneurship Matrix and research results of similar international institutions, the European Small Business Act and the EU 2020 Entrepreneurship Action Plan all emphasize new strategies regarding entrepreneurship. In light of these developments and in parallel to other needs and other developments in Turkey, the necessity has arisen to form a separate strategy and action plan distinct from KSEP, that focuses solely on entrepreneurship. Within this framework preparations began in 2012 and the “Turkish Entrepreneurship Strategy and Action Plan (GİSEP),” that covers the years 2015-2018, has been prepared.
