Azercell Telecom’s Barama Innovation Center has realized its next project by signing a memorandum on cooperation with the Community for the Development of Young Engineers (GencMIIB). The management team of Azercell Telecom and NGO members took part in the signing ceremony. Young Engineers Community is the public union which supports professional and public activities of engineers and engineering organizations, publicizes social responsibility and environmental safety, and acts as a regulatory point between the engineering organizations.
The center founded in 2009 by Azercell with the purpose of supporting entrepreneurship in Azerbaijan generally supports the projects on information technologies and companies established in this field to become independent businesses. Barama Center has made a number of achievements during five years of its activity. More than 30 projects were launched at the center and 20 of them completed successfully. Currently, 4 businesses are in their development stages. One of start-ups taking first steps at the center is currently continuing its operation in the U.S. State of Virginia. 3 projects participating in the program “Science and Technology Entrepreneurship” organized by Azercell and CRDF received grants for future development and 6 projects won a business trip to California, in Silicon Valley, where they met with the world leading companies and experienced investors and businessmen.
The new cooperation between Barama Innovation Center and Young Engineers Community will facilitate the implementation of successful projects by combining various fields in engineering and information technologies for innovative ideas and technical solutions.
Azercell, always remaining committed to its social responsibility initiatives, creates opportunities for the development of young generation and supports all talented youth in the country.
