marketingThis weekend I attended a workshop at Stockholm School of Entrepreneurship about Global Entrepreneurial Marketing. Workshop has been held by Rasmus Rahm, who is a Research Assistant at Stockholm School of Economics and Founder & Owner at Pop n Roll.

1- Customer is the boss

2- Marketing is a complex thing and should not be seen as an isolated event. (more…)

meetingFor the last two years I lived in Stockholm and studied as a master student at ICT Entrepreneurship. In my opinion networking is the crucial part of entrepreneurship. I am not an experienced entrepreneur, who made billions of dollars, but still I have some recommendations for you. These are my stories as a young entrepreneur in Stockholm and may be you will not agree with me. Let’s get started;

 

Lessons Learned 1: Be active but not over-active

Some friends of mine, who runs after people to collect their business cards and mail addresses, generally see that people only once. I think this is really disturbing and has no value inside. As a young entrepreneur I sometimes feel that people do not pay enough attention to me since I do not have a lot to offer them. But, once you show them the energy and sympathy it will be easy for you to have good connections with them. So, there is no need to run after people to get their contact details. They will never get back to you. (more…)

scja_certificateI am a Sun Certified Java associate and would like to share my knowledge and recommendations with you. I think the exam is really evaluating your IT and Java knowledge. The Sun Certified Associate (SCJA) for the Java Platform, Standard Edition, Exam Version 1.0 certification exam provides an ideal entry into an application development or a software project management career using Java technologies.

Since I am a computer engineer and has several years programming experience, becoming a SCJA will be beneficial for me in the future. I think, Sun Microsystems’ certificate exams are really prestigious in the market and help professionals to find better positions.

Lets come to my recommendations:
1- Write codes as much as possible by using NetBeans IDE (personal recommendation).
2- Study through Sun SAI (online learning services)
3- Solve lots of mock up exams and questions (You can find examples from links below)

For more information please check my SCJA Tips page

I am still a master student at KTH, Stockholm and will be graduated with in 3 or 4 months. Some people wanted me to share my intention letter, which I used while appliying for a master’s program at The Royal Institute of Technology in Sweden. I believe intention letter is the most important thing when you apply for a master or PDH program. Because it basically shows your interest and willingness to study on that particular topic.

 Here you can find my intention letter.

alper_celikIn the 1990s the computing industry shifted from expensive proprietary systems to open systems based on standard, low-cost hardware. This move changed a 20-year pattern of IT buying and deployment models. Some of the biggest IT buyers, like universities and research centers, also started to look for better, flexible and cheaper IT solutions.

For a start-up time to market is so important. To decrease the time to market, a start-up must be able to develop their product or service in a reasonable time and price. To do that, Sun Microsystem’s new program for Start-Ups can be a good alternative. Why should we pay a lot for the IT costs just at the very beginning?
