Launching Innovation: Celebrating the Kickoff of Workup Batch 12

Workup 12th Batch kicked off on 8 February 2024 and brought in a fresh batch of 9 innovative startups. This launch marks a new chapter in our ongoing mission to foster startup innovation and growth. With the backing of İşbank and the guidance of Hackquarters by Tenity, Workup has evolved into a cornerstone of support for emerging technologies and business models, pushing the boundaries of what's possible in the startup ecosystem. Startups in the Workup program can look forward to scaling opportunities and partnerships with İşbank and its partners, customized mentoring, perks worth more than $300,000, and opportunities to expand their businesses worldwide.

For Batch 12, Workup sets ambitious goals: to provide unparalleled mentorship, open doors to new markets through strategic partnerships, and offer access to vital investment opportunities. We aim to equip our startups with the tools they need to scale globally and make a lasting impact.  

Over twelve seasons, Workup has carved out a niche as a beacon of innovation, receiving over 16,000 applications, selecting 146 startups, and witnessing the graduation of 100 alum startups. These teams have collectively raised an impressive $21.5 million in investments, a testament to the program's effectiveness in nurturing viable, growth-oriented businesses.

This year's selection process was our most competitive yet, with over 600 startups vying for a spot in the program. Through rigorous screening and careful deliberation, we shortlisted 24 exceptional startups, with 12 making it to Jury Day. Ultimately, 9 startups were selected to join Batch 12, each demonstrating unique potential to disrupt their respective industries.

This batch started with the onboarding meeting, attended by the Workup Program Team and 12th Batch Startups founders, on February 8th, 2024, Thursday. The program will continue until June 2024, offering world-class coaching and networking, encouraging innovation with İşbank and its group companies, and granting access to investment networks.
