Olmak means "Be" or "Become". Olmak (formerly called "Tech-TRNC") is a community to inspire and drive awareness of the opportunities that exist with/ in technology in North Cyprus, create a talent pool, and connect the talent pipeline to vacancies from employers globally while engaging stakeholders from the private and public sectors to the highest levels of government to advance favorable policies for growth, talent attraction and retention.
We host community meetups regularly. Look out for the next one or invite us to host one at your university, organization, city or location.

Olmak 1.0: The origins
It is important to share the steps that led to the formation of “Olmak”. Informed by research and powered by partnerships from our friends like wakafire photography, the foundational blocks were laid.
Partner with Olmak
We need to have our stories told and shared with the world, we need support to acquire costly hardware and software licenses, and cover internet/ laptop costs for the community. We also need free and/or affordable courses and our voices need to be heard to contribute to and influence government policy on technology, remote jobs, and immigration (post-study and nomad visas).
"It is not everyday you get to work on a project that can change the destiny of your country forever."
- Obasa Olorunfemi; Olmak Founder
