Incubation Program Teams

“We dream of cities that everybody socialize safely and independently. We aim to create livable social spaces for the people with physical disabilities, increasing accessible places, bringing the people with diverse disabilities and public utilities together by use of our website and mobile application in order to ease their access to social places.”

“As Future Tech Association, we set out to raise awareness in all areas of society about technologies that are developing in our world, on the brink of a new technology revolution, that currently affect our lives and have the potential to change our lives altogether. We aim to reduce the negative effects of developing and changing technologies and spread the positive ones. With technology literacy, we focus on the rights, freedoms and inclusive mechanisms of these technologies.”

“As a capacity development platform for producer groups with limited means of livelihoods, our aim is to facilitate the social and economic participation in society of the individuals and groups (women, disabled, immigrant etc.) with a basic production ability but cannot earn a living due to the external reasons and cannot participate in social life.”

“We have a dream of building ‘co-living spaces’ that bring people together. We re-design living spaces in a way that includes human and community relations. With these spaces, we’re hoping to create a new culture of common living by improving people’s ability to co-create and live together. Our goal is to transform home culture from being personal to a common life. Thus, we aim to solve accomodation problems, alienation, social isolation, and problems of youth.”

At a time when the trust in media is at all-time low, our main aims are to prevent false information from spreading online, help media consumers develop their media literacy skills, and develop methods to promote critical thinking.

We’ve been publishing analyses on teyit.org in both Turkish and English languages on suspicious content especially in times of crisis since our launch on October 26, 2016. We also give fact-checking workshops and contribute to publications aiming at raising awareness about the importance of public access to factual information.”
