About Murat

I'm Naval Architect and Marine Engineer with an MBA degree. During my master degree, I gave special interest to business strategies, management of organization, law and marketing.

I have co-founded and managed The First Hydrogen Powered Boat Project of Turkey. (http://www.hurriyetdailynews.com/eco-friendly-boat-produced-in-turkey.aspx?pageID=238&nID=9272&NewsCatID=340) Then with my leadership some of my friend from Hydrogen Boat Project selected to one of the best business incubation center in Turkey with the business idea of "development of the energy efficient sea vehicles and application of alternative energy systems on sea vehicles". We accomplished the pre-incubation phase and won the competition. Then we have founded TVY Marine Engineering Industry and Trading Inc. in 2012 (www.tvymarine.com). TVY Marine has approved as R&D company by Istanbul Technical University ARI Science Park and moved to ARI Science Park Technology Development Zone.

TVY was my first business enterprise and herewith I have considerably improved myself in entrepreneurship ecosystem by challenging with startup phase ecosystem here in Turkey. Then I have invited to be a co-founder and to manage the company named OMC Investment and International Trade (www.omcgroup.co).

I can say that I am self-motivated, fast learner, challenge lover and ambitious. I love being together with clever and innovative minds. Even if I am an engineer, I prefer to use my knowledge and skills in business development. The companies or the teams working on engineering projects attract me the most. I believe that I can contribute a lot to a company or business idea which I interested. I am open to cooperate with the entrepreneurs no matter what the distance is. In the early stage of business idea, we can work online but later different scenarios can be evaluated. Feel free to message me!
