“Turkey’s Woman Entrepreneur Competition” gets under way

The period has begun for submitting applications to take part in the “Turkey’s Woman Entrepreneur Competition” organized for the fourth time this year jointly by GarantiBank and the magazine Ekonomist with the support of the Women Entrepreneurs Association of Turkey (KAGİDER).

As in the previous competitions, our aim is to reveal the spirit of business and social entrepreneurship among women in our country and to help their numbers reach the levels that exist in developed countries.

Since 2008 the “Turkey’s Woman Entrepreneur Competition” has been an opportunity to recognize and reward women entrepreneurs who do business with a sense of  social responsibility. If you’re a woman who believes that the business you’ve set up should be more than just a business and should contribute towards dealing with social, cultural, educational, and unemployment problems and that your efforts are socially-oriented, we invite you to take part in this important competition.

To submit an application for the “Turkey’s Woman Entrepreneur of the Year” competition now, just click here.
