Nilüfer Aktaş

I am a professional with experience at wealth management, marketing, business development and strategic advisory since 1996. Throughout my career, I have accumulated networks of policy-makers, business executives, innovators and scholars and high net worth individuals who now constitute my circle of power. At TEB, I lead the Angel Investment & Business Development Department, the only Bank led/managed angel investment network in the World which aims to keep track of technological innovations and share this accumulated knowledge with private banking clients in order to enlighten the smart investors with smart money.

As a recent graduate member of Stanford Business School, I had the chance to gain insights from prominent professors like Robert Burgelman on /Leading Strategic and Why it Matters?/ Christian Wheeler on /Product Market Fit/ and George Foster on /Building New Venture Growth Opportunities and Propelling Growth with Partnerships. /

I am personally interested in Virtual & Augmented Reality and have been mentoring the first cooperative structured VR Academy supported by Bilgi University and İstanbul Development agency since 2015. My mentoring also involved sponsoring which means active representing activities on behalf of the start-up company. This is a mutually beneficial relationship that involves continuous bussiness development mentoring for DECOL in order to reach a broader industry coverage like Healthcare, Tourism and EduTech.
