Who is Murat Ozturker
Meet the Man Who Started It All
Hi everyone! Murat here. I’m an entrepreneur who learned about global business because I had to. Like so many other people who have faced hardships in their jobs, I was forced to adapt—and quickly—to support myself and my family. Today, I’m well into my career.
I graduated from university with an economics degree and went to work for an amazing consultancy firm as an International Trade Consultant. I was thriving in my career and had no plans to leave it—but there are some parts of life we can’t control.
After completing my military service in 2009, I continued to work in international business in various sectors and roles. I started my own global trade journey with my valued business partner by doing what is necessary for my entrepreneurial spirit and I still continue my journey with love and growing momentum.

HOW EXPORT PORT BEGIN
A Little Story About a Big Dream
In the wake of the pandemic, I have started to work from home. I started looking for answers and a new direction and what I found blew my mind.
I decided to share my experience in international trade with people who are interested in export and import. For testing purposes, I opened a youtube channel for myself and uploaded some of my videos. Within a few months, my views and subscribers started to show a serious increase and I started to get good reactions from people.
This surprise youtube success suddenly brought me to the idea of starting a “niche blog” that led me to the world of international trade, global entrepreneurship.
As my journey continued, I met kind, talented and generous people who helped me grow my business and chops. I also realized early on that I wanted to help others take control of their professional and international destinies, and that was the spark that started the Export Port.
The more I taught others, the more I learned myself, and it was with this enthusiasm that I decided to create the Export Port community. The Export Port community continues to evolve and mature, and our story is not over yet. In many ways, it’s just begun.
