Things You Might Get Curios

We have received many questions
over the past 10 years. So, you may find some answers here…

What is Venture Warrior?

Venture Warrior is the unprecedented, first and only interdisciplinary entrepreneurship organization. With the support of 25 senior experts from different disciplines, it enables you to have a 360-degree experience of entrepreneurship and learn it thoroughly. It trains visionary, disciplined, equipped, powerful entrepreneurs who can make a difference. It contains extraordinary theoretical and practical applications. You can realize your own potential during training and make a difference with your own project afterwards. After successfully graduating from the program, you are admitted to our community and receive organized support. Our graduates continue to receive lifelong support after the training. We fight against the social problems of the international community through out the projects we create side by side.

Who are These Venture Warriors?

Entrepreneurs are warriors. They pursue their passions, dreams and goals. They are not driven by ego but the search for wisdom. True entrepreneurs focus on value before money, they keep the thrill of being able to change the world above everything else. They live fearlessly towards their goals without worrying about being right, leaving a trace and always being remembered. They turn the philosophy of entrepreneurship into a life philosophy.

We call these true entrepreneurs with the potential of changing the future as “Venture Warriors". Because there is not much difference between a great warrior and a successful entrepreneur. Both start out by overcoming their inner battles. Both require courage, knowledge, accumulation, diligence and resilience to be what they are. And both experience the team life until the end, manage their emotions, control their thoughts, take over responsibility in any condition, endure pain and pressure and never give up on their dreams and their passion to struggle with the social problems.

How Did the Venture Warrior Program Come to Existence?

The day we invented the wheel, we started resisting nature. Resisting natural selection and even entropy with its inventions, human race is now rapidly moving on a bicycle without brakes and all they can do is to turn the pedals faster every other day! It is a must for our existence to bring solutions with entrepreneurship projects to the ever-increasing problems of the world. We mean, if we don't wish to die due to global warming, infections or lack of water…

And where are these brave and idealist entrepreneurs to solve these problems with their projects?

Entrepreneurship centres around the world today focus not on people but on projects. The general approach of these centres is based on trying to rapidly develop the entrepreneur's project with a number of casual training and consultancy services and sealing the deal by bringing these projects together with the investor as soon as possible. But an entrepreneur comes before the project. Because there is a person at the heart of each work! At the base of the rapid success stories of billion-dollar enterprises of the new economy, lies not their business ideas or models but their warrior teams who use and manage these sources the best way possible. The common feature of these warriors is that they are so much more mature than the average person. Those that are not mature enough personally and technically cannot create projects that will change the world. These entrepreneurs are bound to come to a deadlock at a certain stage even if they receive investment.

So, our priority is not projects but entrepreneurs. For this, we primarily offer a very special and unique training process for our entrepreneurs. In this training, they redefine their lives and themselves, increase their awareness, gain mental resilience, broaden their vision, enhance their wisdom and take all their technical and theoretical knowledge to a thorough level. They can set up their own businesses in the simplest form even before the training is completed. Thus, they set out for their direction with a strong foundation. Afterwards, those who succeed in the program are admitted into our graduate community to come together with other graduates with whom they can speak the same language and share the same values and receive lifelong organized support here.

The Venture Warrior aims to train and support entrepreneurs capable of producing solutions to the major social problems of the world with their projects.

Why Not Venture Peacemaker but Warrior?

Our war is not against what is around us, but ourselves. Against the ego that we've built over the years, the juggler that draws us into traps, the negative parts of our primitive brains, our limits and dogmas… According to American SEALs, an average person only uses one-twentieth of their existing potential. And only those who dare to realize their own potential to the fullest by challenging their limits, who can control their emotions, discover and focus on their life goals can achieve outstanding success. For us, entrepreneurship is not just about establishing a business. We can talk about entrepreneurship when people discover their life goals and live for it with their full capacity by managing their emotions, thoughts and bodies, eliminating the obstacles in their way and never giving up. Our graduates include a very wide scale of Venture Warriors who develop applications, do e-commerce and foreign trade, write books, get promotions, conduct social responsibility projects, or win medals in sports activities. Each person who devote their lives to fight for what they believe in, never compromise their values, manage their thoughts, emotions and bodies in a healthy way, have a large impact on the people around them and put social benefit at the heart of what they do is an Venture Warrior. And yes, this is only possible if we can fight against ourselves.

Is your program paid?

No funds are used in the Venture Warrior Adaptation, Training and Master stages, which are open to individual participation. The biggest reason for this is our liberal and independent stance. Another reason is our belief that every individual who wants to be an entrepreneur should be ready to pay the price, regardless of the circumstances. Accordingly, our program is paid and all participants cover their own costs. Spending company profits on the personal wealth of company owners and super luxury consumption are prohibited in accordance with our internal regulations. The entire budget allocated for company profit is spent on direct investment to develop the VEW. All income and expenses are audited on a monthly basis by the VEW Special Association and the authorized sworn financial advisors of the independent audit company, and a full certification report is submitted to the tax office. Additionally, their accounts are open to public inspection. VEW is also a signatory of the Open Account Pact movement that it initiated.

I already have a job. Can I attend the program?

Yes. A considerable part of applications consists of entrepreneur candidates who actively continue their work, but in the meantime want to set up their own business or develop their career. The program is conducted face-to-face on weekends, and online at weeknights to allow active employees to attend. Additionally, the Adaptation stage can preferably be taken completely live or online. However, the program works with practices. Get ready for challenges.

Do you provide any certificate at the end of the program?

The Beginner Union Participation Certificate is given to the candidate who is accepted to VEW Beginner Union and has attended the program and has a maximum of 2 warning penalties. The candidate who received the third warning cannot attend the Master Unit Program in the next stage and cannot receive any certificate. They are disassociated from VEW.

Graduates who are admitted into the VEW Master Unit and graduate from there with 2 warnings at the most and whose project is approved by the VEW Central Executive Board receive Venture Warrior Certification, and whose project is not approved or who receive 4 warnings are given Master Entrepreneur Certificate. Applicants who get 5 warnings do not receive any certificate and they are disassociated from VEW after the course period.

What is the common feature of those who are successful in this training?

Being determined to struggle with the universal social problems and to be fair. These are the key values that open the doors in the VEW world. The greatest foundation of people who successfully graduate from VEW is to be highly determined, passionate and they treat their environment fairly.
