Since 2007 “Turkey's Woman Entrepreneur Competition” has been organized by KAGIDER Garanti Bank, and the Ekonomist Magazine. The objective is to boost the business and social entrepreneurship spirit of women in our country, and help their numbers grow to global levels.
Within the scope of the competition, projects and success stories of women who do business throughout Turkey are considered. Encouraging women entrepreneurs and publicizing their success stories to set an example for women all over Turkey is aimed for.
The number of women who applied to the contest was just 103 in 2007, while in 2015 the number has reached to a total of 32.000. This shows the entrepreneurship interest and the potential among Turkish women.
