Kuluçka fikirlere altın öğütler

40 yaşına varmadan başarılı ve zengin olmayı mı aklınıza koydunuz? Kolay değil ama bu hedefe ulaşanların sayısı giderek artıyor.

KENDİNİZİ AÇIK VE NET İFADE EDİN
Fortune 40 Yaş Altı 40 Yönetici listesine geçen sene Sellanycar.com Kurucusu ve CEO’su sıfatıyla giren Saygın Yalçın, bugün Ortadoğu’nun ilk ve en büyük özel alışveriş kulübü Sukar.com’un da kurucusu olarak tanınıyor. 2 bin 500’den fazla çalışanıyla Arap dünyasının en büyük e-ticaret şirketi Jabbar Internet & Souq.com Group’un da ortağı da olan Yalçın’ın tavsiyeleri bire bir iş tecrübelerinden sonra şekillenmiş bir iş fikrinin yaratıcısı aynı zamanda. İş fikri gündeme gelmeden önce Yalçın yanına sadece sırt çantası ve laptopunu alıp Dubai’de ücretsiz interneti olan bir kafede bulur kendini. Başlarda işlerin hiç de yolunda gitmediğini anlatırken, “Sukar.com’u kurduktan sonra ilk aylar çok zorlu geçti. Hem markaları ikna etmek zordu hem de ürünleri satmak. Maliyet o kadar yüksekti ki, ürünleri yüksek fiyattan alıp, ucuza sattığımız çok oldu” diyor.

Dubai Kanada Üniversitesi’nde girişimcilik ve e-ticaret konularında ders veren Yalçın, genç girişimcilere şu tavsiyede bulunuyor. “Hiçbir zaman pes etmeyin ve fikrinizin sağlamlığını test edin. Bazen süreçler uzar ancak bu sizi yıldırmasın” diyor.
