Nihat Küçük


I'm a true entrepreneur and professional in location based technologies, navigation,maps, traffic and the mobile Internet space. I've 10+ years experience in doing research & development on mobility services in one of the world's finest automotive companies, add another 13+ years experience in running a startup. This adds up to a 23+ track in the maps and navigation business.

I've launched a startup with zero funding, turned from a research scientist and project manager into an entrepreneur learning to build a sustainable business. I've successfully achieved to turn research ideas into products and do profitable business with many international fortune 500 companies.

Passion and continuous innovation keeps me in my fast paced business, defining exciting products and projects, doing fast & lean business development, doing product management, sales and operation in a start-up environments, even under extreme uncertainties and financial constraints.

As an entrepreneur I always have to excite both my customers and investors, convince with brilliant ideas, but be realistic in road maps and down-to-earth cost plans. I'm known as an empathic leader, strong believer, tough worker, managing both technology and business extremely well. Strategy is best when it comes to its execution, in a motivated team full of believers.
