The Hamdi Ulukaya Initiative is an entrepreneur support program launched in 2017 by Hamdi Ulukaya, Founder and CEO of Chobani, one of the fastest-growing food companies of the last decade. The Initiative offers two programs for anyone who believes in their dreams:
The Startup Program helps startups founded in Turkey access global markets, and the Fellowship Program discovers young leaders from Turkey and encourages them to start their own businesses. As part of the yearlong program, participants attend trainings in Turkey and New York City at Chobani’s in-house Incubator and at New York University.
The Hamdi Ulukaya Initiative is founded on Hamdi Ulukaya’s vision that businesses have the power to transform societies in a positive way. The Initiative supports entrepreneurs who are interested not just in financial success, but also in improving social welfare as a whole.
