 US-based Boomerangme, Turkey-based TYMY and UAE-based Pass24.online emerged victorious among over 100+ startup applicants at the EMERGE International tech conference, which took place in Istanbul on 2-3 October. Venture fund Contribution Capital will invest $1M in one of the selected startups after due diligence. 

Pass24.online offers a cloud access control system with a mobile application for guest and key management. Boomerangme provides an easy-to-use white-label Loyalty Platform tailored for digital agencies, facilitating their transition from transactional to SaaS models, while TYMY has created a SaaS ecosystem designed to drive sales.

Following a rigorous and highly competitive selection process involving startups from different sectors such as healthtech, biotech, fintech, edutech, martech, eCommerce, and cleantech, among other industries, Pass24.online, Boomerangme and TYMY demonstrated exceptional innovation, potential, and a strong alignment with the future of technology and entrepreneurship.

The EMERGE conference was attended by 100+ investors, VCs and Angels from local and global markets, including Turkey, MENA, Europe, the USA, the UK, India and others. Also present were over 150 startups from 20 nations and over 1500 delegates from more than 30 countries. Representatives from leading investment funds Early Bird, 500 Global, Plug and Play, Heartfelt (ex APX), Molten Capital (ex Draper Esprit), Depo Ventures, Vestel Ventures, Revo Capital, and many others took part in the conference. 

The Mayor of Istanbul supported the EMERGE Conference with a compelling message, where he highlighted the importance of technology and entrepreneurship development as key contributors to employment and production. Erol Özgüner, Chief Innovations Officer at Istanbul Metropolitan Municipality, visited EMERGE on the first day of the conference and shared his welcome message at the opening ceremony. 

Alexander Smbatyan, tech founder and investor, EMERGE Chairman: “Since its establishment in 2018, EMERGE has grown to become the biggest startup conference in Eastern Europe and Central Asia. With over 15,000 attendees over the years, this event continues to bring together founders, community leaders, larger companies, and investors from across the “New East” – a region that offers a great deal of investment, business expansion, and HR opportunities. Empowering talented people and strong leaders is my personal lifetime mission and EMERGE is a perfect platform to accomplish it. Now in its sixth year, EMERGE has become a unique hub for world-class professionals and companies to meet and anticipate the trends of the future.”

The EMERGE stage was graced by esteemed speakers from Netflix, Microsoft, and Revolut – as well as Checkout.com, a European fintech leader; Hugging Face, the biggest generative AI marketplace; PandaDoc, Aurora Tech Award (InDrive), Social Discovery Group and many others.
