Escort Technology Chairperson İbrahim Özer said that: “We attach great importance to the issue of increasing the creativity of our children and young people and providing incentives for production. I believe that Robotistan’s work in this field with its wide range of products that provide added value will contribute significantly to the growth and development of the existing ecosystem with the new investment we make.”
Robotistan Founding Partners Yasir Çiçek said that: “As Robotistan team, we are trying to work with all our strength to raise generations that love to produce in our country, to break the rapidly growing consumer culture cycle and to remind people of the taste of producing. We see production as the most important way out that can solve our country’s problems. I would like to thank all my colleagues who shed sweat with us for these goals, and Escort Technology who trusts us and supports us for our dreams.”
