Hülya Aras

I am Hülya Aras,

I was born in 1966 in Istanbul. I am a mother of 2 children. After 29 years of corporate life as an electrical engineer graduated from ITU, I started work in the field of social enterprise

Where and why did we initiate symbiosis activity?

I dreamed of a center where  economically restricted entrepreneur youth could socialize and create value by merging. I decided to set out as a women entrepreneur to establish a sustainable system that I aim to spread to different disadvantaged individuals over time. In our center our main goal is to contribute to the need in this regard. We aim to expand our social impact with all partners operating in this context: public, social enterprise platforms, social entrepreneurs, NGOs, academicians, technology companies and volunteers.

What do we like best about this center?

Providing cultural, artistic and social activities to disadvantaged individuals,

Seeing that disabled people have access to equal rights,

Supporting young people with financial difficulties,

To convey our experiences to those who want to be social entrepreneurs,

Preparing those who have an early stage venture idea for business life,

To share our knowledge and experience in our cafe in different flavors,

Making the housewives productive,

Secondary school students around us taking an active role in social services,

Raising awareness in the society,

serving critical thinking,
