Focusing on next-generation solutions focused on artificial intelligence, especially on the metaverse, Cerebrum Tech added another milestone to its goal of becoming an international technology hub by opening its own Web3, R&D and Innovation Center in Bilkent Cyberpark. The opening of the center was held simultaneously with “Get in The Ring – GITR”, one of the most prestigious and important global startup competitions in the world, on September 16.

Solutions that touch all areas of life
Erkul claimed in the event, “As Cerebrum Tech, we believe that technology, which is at the center of our lives, should produce solutions that make life easier. From this point of view, we are developing the first national metaverse universe that opens to the world from Turkey, Cereverse. On the other hand, we touch every aspect of life by enabling beekeeping education with virtual reality, preventing fires with early warning systems, providing technologies that enable the elderly to live more safely and comfortably in their homes, and prevent water leaks with artificial intelligence. All of this happens with R&D studies that we are constantly expanding. We believe that our new center in Ankara will be a place that develops projects that will contribute to the world and humanity in more areas.”.
“We believe in the potential of youth”
Pointing out that it is meaningful to open the R&D center simultaneously with an international competition, Erkul added, “As Cerebrum Tech, we believe in the potential of youth. Every idea here is very valuable to us. We believe that young people should have access to opportunities to implement their ideas. For this reason, we became the main sponsor of the GITR event. Some of the most valuable ideas will represent our country globally. Together we will contribute to the future of humanity”. After visiting the new center, the guests experienced Ceremeet, the communication and productivity platform of Cerebrum Tech, which can be customized in line with the needs of institutions and individuals in the metaverse. Avatars specially created for them were also presented to the invitees.

What is Get in The Ring (GITR)?
Get in The Ring (GITR), an international competition, is organized by the Netherlands-based foundation founded in 2012 with the same name. In the competition, which is held in more than 130 countries, entrepreneurs try to attract the attention of both the audience and the jury, while trying to give better answers than their opponent by getting into a real ring. Within the scope of this concept, the entrepreneur who first participated in the Get in the Ring organized in his own country and was selected first, represents his country in the Global Final competition held in a different country every year and meets with rival entrepreneurs in the ring. In addition, winners meet new startups from around the world and are promoted to Get in The Ring’s global network of investors and partners.
