“Our family established Esas Group in 2000, which has quickly become of one of the leading investment groups in Turkey and abroad, with wide acclaim for its innovative and entrepreneurial approach. As we celebrate our 15th year, we decided to extend one of our core principles of sustainable investment to the field of social development by establishing ‘Esas Social’ within Esas Group. Esas Social will develop strategies and manage the investments our family allocates to initiatives that promote economic and social equity. By investing in individuals and institutions and working collaboratively with other actors, we aim to develop and support programs that are evidence based and responsive to needs of society.
Unemployment is one of the crucial issues that many societies struggle with, especially those with high growth economies, such as Turkey. Growth is only beneficial for society when it is realized with equity and produces equal opportunities. Education is a critical pillar and first step in helping to level the playing field and provide greater opportunities for employment. "
