Supporting of qualified entrepreneurship and enterprise” which is accepted today as the first option in sustainable development of countries by all states is the leading one of important points between 2023 development aims of our country.Especially when we compare our country with developed world countries, rate of entrepreneurship is around % 4,6 in our country while it is around % 11-12 in America and Europe.The rate of young entrepreneurs of our country is % 2,3. One of the main reasons of having low rate of entrepreneurship in Turkey is that individuals are not encouraged about this matter during their education lives. Especi As addition to all these scientific studies, important consequences came from study of “PAU Faculty of Engineering Entrepreneurship Index – 2013” made under the leadership of IPEC Research.The audience of research is 183 young people who are 3th and 4th class students of PAU Faculty of Engineering and are between 21-25 ages. Only % 8 of young people who attended to research is willing to be entrepreneur after graduation. % 78 of these young people thinks that the education in university does not encourage them to be entrepreneur.Only 5 of 54 firms with PAU Teknokent have been managing by students of PAU Faculty of Engineering.Young people’s interest in especially innovator entrepreneurship is low as countrywide. As a result of this our country is 68th from 128 countries which are mentioned in Global Innovation Index.The most important entrepreneurship field is “Technological Entrepreneurship” in today evaluated as technological age. For our country products with high technology which make up very big part of our importation damage our economy and cause current deficit. Encouraging of technological entrepreneurship as entrepreneurship field with highest added-value is a key importance for sustainable development aims of our country. Based upon all these, we made up “Academy of International Techno Entrepreneurship – AITE” with international partnership.Our project will be actualized with strategically partnership formed from multinational and different corporate structures which will be occurred by the attendance of Pamukkale University, IYPF - International Young Professional Foundation (Foundation), UNIVERSITATEA DUNAREA DE JOS DIN GALATI (University), European Alternatives (Association), IPEC – International Research Org.
