Bluevisor was named as a finalist in Take Off Istanbul International Startup Summit 2019, a startup pitch contest held in Turkey from September 16 through 19.

This year’s pitch contest received applications from over 15,000 startups worldwide. Bluevisor became a finalist after passing three assessments: the preliminary round (300 companies) and the main round (50 companies), and then final round (15 companies). As a result, the company received a Google Cloud award and support funds from the Turkish government
