İbrahim Bodur Social Entrepreneurship Award
Supporting social entrepreneurs who act for a better future
İbrahim Bodur Social Entrepreneurship Award was launched in 2017 and dedicated to the memory and legacy of the late founder of Kale Group İbrahim Bodur. Aspiring to develop not only through growth and production but by sharing the values it creates with the community, Kale Group launched the award programme in partnership with Ashoka Turkey, the world’s first and biggest social entrepreneurship platform. The award program aims to recognise social entrepreneurs who feel responsible to the world and environment and demonstrate the courage to act to make people’s lives better, and ultimately multiply the positive effect they create.
Given the scale of the social issues that we are faced with today, the need for new business models for inclusive growth and sustainable development and initiatives that focus on social benefit to find alternative solutions to problems is greater than ever. Through İbrahim Bodur Social Entrepreneurship Award, Kale Group and Ashoka Turkey support social entrepreneurs who act for a better future. With this award, Kale Group aims to embrace the future.
İbrahim Bodur Social Entrepreneurship Award, given in Start Up, Scale Up and Collaboration categories, recognises social entrepreneurs who have not only come up with a creative idea but launched a sustainable and successful pilot project. Applicants are evaluated against the following criteria: social impact, impact potential, financial sustainability, and credibility. Award winners receive financial support from Kale Group.
