What problem does this idea/product solve or what market need does it serve?

Especially since the early 21st century education is often the case in question, particularly about Turkey requires a subject to be studied to come up as the standard approach in in the education system stands out as the main problem. Standard education given to each child with the same approach is now inadequate to develop 21st Century skills. The focus on the traditional mechanistic approach and the lack of focusing special skills that children and young people have in education accompanied by the standard education system is also an additional problem that is fueling this big problem. As a result, the lack of self-confidence in children growing up with standardized stereotypes imposed by the education system and the failure of 90% of successes in a job they started, and the resulting inadequacy of brain power can be regarded as a reflection of the main problem on the community base and on the national economy.

What attributes will make this idea/product successful? Why do you believe that those features will create success?

Except for some countries, the educational system, which is almost universal in the world, has a structure determined by governments and a uniform structure for every child in every school. This structure is reinforced by the homework system which is based on memorizing creative thinking rather than applying it, and it educates generations who are struggling to keep up with the changing world. inorpreneurs' first aim is to educate the youth to be democratized and made more widespread and to increase the quality of the existing education and to solve the problems that the future generations contribute to the country economy and can cope with. This is quite objective, creating a social impact first and foremost, to develop personalized training model instead of the standard approach to education and primarily the scale of Turkey, then to be able to reach all children with or without the possibility of it worldwide. Because of all these reasons & goals that we want to achieve makes Minorpreneurs best fit for this competition.
