Vehbi Koç Foundation launched the Turkey Social Entrepreneurship Network Project in collaboration with the Directorate for EU Affairs, a department of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Turkey.

As part of the 24 month lasting project activities:

- capacity development activities will be organized through trainings and sources to citizens who hold social - -entrepreneurial skills and qualifications;
- an online platform for social entrepreneurship will be set for empowered dialogue among stakeholders.

Project’s social impact will be measured by partner universities and KUSIF.
