Umut Ermeç – Co-founder & CEO – Tiplay Studio
I spent 10 years in the US before coming back to my hometown in Turkey, Denizli. After spending more than 7000 hours of lecturing audio engineering, I founded a startup in New York through NYU EdTech Incubator, Smart Professions.
I tried to link education with portfolios, not diplomas, so I produced audiobooks for publishers by supervising apprentices. I helped our apprentices create portfolios for launching successful careers as audiobook editors or recording engineers. Osman Tutum, Ahmet Öney and I started tiplay studio in Denizli in 2019. Employing 45 talents in Denizli, İzmir and Online WorkSpace (OWS) branches, I’m proud to say that tiplay studio has one of the best apprenticeship programs in the world as it generated the vast majority of our recruitment.
