Purpose

By further expanding the concept of social capital, one of the most fundamental dynamics of the economy, we aimed to enable people to meet and spend time with potential customers in a social environment while at the same time having an idea about JCI culture.


Overview

We believe that individual business connections are very important during the period of economic empowerment. With the activities we organize for a sustainable economy model, we gain both new members and contribute to economic empowerment.


Results

It is the first networking organization in the country, which has been organized by JCI Istanbul since 2008. We completed the project with two different events in 2020.

At the end of two events, we created funds for our association.

We contacted 300 people for the events, 140 people attended the event. While promoting JCI, we also ensured the creation of new business connections.


Recommendations

* We can create a new opportunity for JCI members by doing more of these kinds of organizations.
* Event announcements can be worked with a PR firm and more participation can be achieved.
* For situations such as Covid-19, online networking activity options can also be considered.
