The Los Angeles based technology platform and the Istanbul headquartered company, which includes real estate, construction, sports and entertainment under its corporate umbrella, have collaborated to develop innovative initiatives in technology, sport, and real estate – culminating in the launch of a new platform, My Garanti Koza on Vixlet.

Vixlet and Garanti Koza today announced a strategic partnership to develop pioneering technologies through the next generation Vixlet social platform. It will be a catalyst for the creation of new products, with the introduction of My Garanti Koza, to enhance Garanti Koza’s real-estate portfolio and Koza World of Sports’ events and brand activities. The launch coincides with the beginning of the 2017 Garanti Koza Sofia Open ATP tennis tournament, and was officially announced during the Opening Ceremony of the event.

The My Garanti Koza social network will provide the community with access to information, updates and exclusive content under a diverse range of topics, including project developments, tennis tournaments, real estate opportunities, and sponsorships.

At the Sofia Open, the app will include real-time data, scores and results, draws, head to head data, weather and unique Vixlet features, which allow fans to upload and share content, meet each other, and check-in to VIP events on-site.

“This partnership will fundamentally transform how real-estate is sold and experienced while creating synergies with the broader Garanti Koza portfolio,” said Krishna Gopala, Chairman and Co-Founder of Vixlet. “As a thought leader in a diverse portfolio of businesses, Garanti Koza is an ideal partner for the next phase of Vixlet’s growth and we look forward to empowering Garanti Koza with next generation technology,” added Lisa Gopalakrishnan, CEO and Co-Founder of Vixlet.

“Garanti Koza is proud to launch its own social network, where clients, tennis fans and the public, will be able to access exclusive information on everything Garanti Koza,” said Mr. Sukru Ilkel, Chairman of Garanti Koza. “This is a unique opportunity to combine many aspects of Garanti Koza, in an innovative and interactive online environment.”

As a market leader in technology, with a unique advantage in sports, Vixlet’s platform provides unprecedented fan engagement for large sporting leagues and teams such as the ATP World Tour (the men’s professional tennis circuit), Liverpool Football Club, Major League Baseball (MLB, the US baseball league), and global cricket and hockey teams. The platform also includes a broader portfolio of entertainment and corporate clients.

Garanti Koza is an industry leader in construction and property development, with industrial construction, commercial ventures and residential projects worldwide.

Garanti Koza’s sports portfolio includes three international tennis tournaments - ATP Istanbul Open, ATP Sofia Open and WTA Istanbul Cup - as well as the recently completed 55 court tennis training complex at Koza World of Sports which offers a world-class facility for tournaments, player development and recreational health and fitness.

The Sofia Open takes place from 5 February 2017 to 12 February at the “Armeec Arena” with 12,000 spectator capacity. The tournament will feature ATP players such as Dominic Thiem, David Goffin, Roberto Bautista, and Grigor Dimitrov.
