Many questions have been asked about the Entrepreneurial Warrior Program so far. Below you will find the answers to these questions.

Entrepreneurship has become one of the most popular concepts recently. However, this easy-to-say magical word crowning the title page of social media profiles for many people is, in fact, a badge which can be carried by those who deserve it! Because, in reality we refer to those who are fighters in hard times and progressivist minds, and who leads societies... Entrepreneurs are actual fighters, they pursue their passions. Real entrepreneurs follow wisdom instead of their ego. Real entrepreneurs focus on value before money, they prefer the excitement of the possibility of changing the world into a top model car. They live without fear in line with their goals regardless of whether they will be proved right, whether they will leave their marks or whether they will be remembered.
We call those real entrepreneurs who are the hope of future "Entrepreneurial Warriors". Because there is not much difference between a great warrior and a successful entrepreneur. Both set off by first winning their inner battles. Both require courage, experience, skills, diligence and endurance. The only limit for both is values. Both live out team life, control their emotions and thoughts, assume full responsibility under all circumstances, endure pain and stress, and either they get results or die trying but never give up on their goals, never...
Today, the entrepreneurship centers operating worldwide generally focus on “projects”, not the people. The general approach adopted by these centers is built around finishing the job by developing the project of an entrepreneur through some quickly fixed training and consulting services and introducing these projects to investors as soon as possible. Whereas, the entrepreneur himself/herself comes before the project because at the center of each job is a man. What lies under the quick growth stories of billion-dollar enterprises of the new economy is not business ideas or business models they have but, teams with a Warrior spirit that make best use of these resources. The common quality shared by these Warriors that change the world is their maturity in comparison to an average person. Entrepreneurs that have yet to achieve a certain level of maturity in terms of personality and technically cannot generate projects that will change the world.
Our priority is entrepreneurs, not projects. We first select individuals that possess basic personal qualities for entrepreneurship with care and later expose them to a very special and extraordinary process. During this process, they will re-define themselves and life, increase their awareness, gain mental resilience, broad their vision, increase their wisdom, fully learn the entire technical knowledge they will need during a disciplined process, and thus start their own business in a viable form before the training is completed. Those who participate in the training to develop their business will do so and those who participate in the training to take advantage of career opportunities are referred to companies.
Our fight is not against people, but ourselves. Against our ego we have grown inside for years, tricksters attracting us to traps, the negative aspects of our primitive brain and our limits and dogmas restricting us...According to the American SEAL Commandos, an average person lives using one twentieth of his/her potential. However, those who have the courage to reveal their entire potential by pushing the limits are able to control their emotions, discover and focus on their life goals and achieve great success. For us entrepreneurship does not mean starting a business. Entrepreneurship means that an individual is capable of determining his/her life goal and living in full capacity toward this goal by managing his/her feelings, thoughts and body, and removing all obstacles faced. Therefore, we have a wide variety of individuals among our alumni of Warriors ranging from those involved in e-trade, foreign trade, to those writing books, opening cafes, receiving promotion, carrying out social responsibility projects, and winning sports medals. Any individual that achieves great success by controlling his/her thoughts, emotions and body is an entrepreneur.
We promise a program, the kind of which you have never seen before. During this program, you will learn the business and trade world well, internalize all of the tricks, broaden your vision, maximize your mental and physical resilience, discover the real potential within you, start your business from scratch and also be the expert sought by companies.

There are many products and services offered free, at a cheap, average price or expensive price in the world. When it comes to training, for example, an “entrepreneurship” program can be bought at a very high price in Harvard or received free of charge from a distant learning school in Turkey. Even if the topic is the same, training method and contribution of the program to you shall vary to a tremendous extent. The Entrepreneurial Warrior training is one of the highest quality program offered around globe with its unprecedented methods and extraordinary training techniques. The Entrepreneurial Warrior offers you a unique experience, communicates the entire technical knowledge and behavioral elements to you through trainings, helps you start your own business, follows you closely and continuously supports you after your graduation. Entrepreneurship is a very serious decision that will affect your life deeply, and setting out on this journey with the best organization will determine your success.
On the other hand, organizations that announce they offer support free of charge do not first aim to train you as an entrepreneur, but to achieve a some kind of ‘score’ by developing your project quickly. For, majority of these organizations carry on with the support of sponsorships (private or public), and priority of sponsors are projects. Sponsors capitalize on the projects created through advertisement (PR). And on the day sponsor’s support ends, the support to the entrepreneur ends. Whereas, entrepreneurship is a process that continues a lifetime. Quickly-fixed and hap hazard simple trainings and artificial projects forced by funding cannot be expected to become permanent. Hard and large scale businesses are generated by experts that have grasped and internalized entrepreneurship well.
With this in mind, entrepreneurs in Turkey must be trained with care, grasp a flexible thinking style, gain mental resilience and visionary perspective, enhance their wisdom, receive the required technical knowledge, be disciplined, and be supported professionally at regular intervals and for short periods, but constantly (years). A well-organized and quality service constructed this way cannot be offered free of charge.
No. The Entrepreneurial Warrior cannot benefit from any funds in the Beginner and Master Unions. The ultimate reason being is our libertarian and independent stance, as well as the fact that we feel that each individual wishing to be an entrepreneur—regardless of circumstance—are ready to pay the price. Hence, the program has a fee, and it is only our supporters who are our participants. Program fees are revised in May of each year upon looking at annual inflation rates. The fees are allocated as being 25% for fixed expenses, 25% for company profit, 20% for the operational expenses, 15% for promotion expenses, 5% for the Special Union budget, and 10% for early registration discount allowance. In accordance with our internal regulations, the spending of the company’s profit by company owners for their own personal wealth and consumption is prohibited. The budget allocated as the profit of company is directly invested into the development of the GIS. All incomes and expenses are audited on a monthly basis by the GIS Special Union.
Yes. A significant portion of the applications is coming from prospective entrepreneurs who are currently working somewhere, but want start their own business or develop their careers on the other hand. The program is offered face to face at weekends and over Internet during evening time at weekdays, and actively working individuals can participate. However, seminars are carried out through practices. Be ready to be challenged.
The alumni who attend to the GIS Master Union, do not receive more than 2 warnings and whose projects are approved by the GIS Central Executive Committee are granted the Entrepreneurial Warrior Certificate; those who receive more than 4 warnings and whose projects are not approved are granted the Master Entrepreneur Certificate. The candidates who receive the 5th warning do not receive any certificates and the relations with those are broken off. Those who are detected to violate the principle of honesty during the program are directly dismissed from the program without any warnings.
Ambition. Ambition is the key to opening doors in the GIS world. Ambition has always been the ultimate means of support for those who have successfully graduated from GIS training. This value is also fundamental for putting forward important projects. Brilliance and intelligence is nowhere near as important as ambition.
Life-long. We were established to support our graduates until death, in the strictest sense of the word. Entrepreneurial Warrior was established in order to groom well calibrated entrepreneurs, as well as in order to create entrepreneurial projects that can change the world by supporting our experts in a sound manner. This task is not one that can be achieved in just a few short weeks or months. Entrepreneurism is a life-long adventure, and the Entrepreneurial Warrior program is meant to continue well into the future.
