Deputy Governor Soner Karataşoğlu said, “The goals of 2023 and 2071 have very important visions and goals for our country and our city. We will try to reach the vision goals without crushing under wild capitalism, based on the principle of social state, in reaching the goals written in the Vision Document announced by our Governor Mr. Cevdet Can. The main issue in social entrepreneurship is to be able to solve the social problems with our people radically without any profit. At different meetings we have done, we always say that ‘he says, but he struggles to solve the problem’. We also have a problem, a lost treasure, I say this as someone who has prepared a doctoral thesis about social exclusion. I believe that it would be sufficient to research and learn the foundations found in the book “Interesting Foundations” published by the General Directorate of Foundations. When we learn how social problems are solved 400-500 years ago, we need to feel sorry for our current situation, foundations that serve the elderly at home, repair the hours in mosques, carry ice to the public in summer, what an interesting civilization was, this is our lost treasure, to find this treasure again, to win we have to work and receive training. Perhaps the most important of these trainings is the social entrepreneurship trainings that are rapidly accepted all over the world. “The solution of social problems will be possible with an entrepreneurial spirit and with the increasing number of social entrepreneurs that will prioritize the sustainability goal.” Karataşoğlu said, “Our governor’s office also has a target, to be the province where the social problem is less and the sensitivity is highest in 2023. For these reasons, we would like to thank the Governor Mr. Cevdet Can and the Central Black Sea Development Agency Board of Directors for supporting all kinds of efforts for the development of social enterprise in our province, as they attach importance to the Social Entrepreneurship training supported by OKA within the scope of Technical Support. ”
