Technical assistance for Development of Osmaniye Enterprise Development Centre (İŞGEM), Turkey

Osmaniye, formerly a district of Adana, became a province in 1996. The first Organized Industrial Zone (OIZ) in Osmaniye became operational in 2004 and since then economic development was further encouraged with today 101 companies employing more than 7,500 personnel located in the OIZ. Despite this already stable increase the industrial potential of the province is still not fully utilised. One of the main deterrents of industrial growth is the weak entrepreneurial infrastructure.
The establishment of an enterprise development centre (Íşgem), can support entrepreneurs during the incubation phase and provide technical and management advice with regard to business planning, financing, product development and marketing.
Overall objective: Contribute to the socio-economic development of Osmaniye.

Purpose: Strengthen entrepreneurship in Osmaniye

Results to be achieved:
• Entrepreneurial environment strengthened.
• Technical capacities of enterprises in Osmaniye Íşgem increased.
