IDEMA was founded in 2011 by long-time experienced three international development professionals with the purpose of realizing innovative socio-economic development solutions across Turkey and around the world. As an entrepreneurship initiative, IDEMA is driven with an energetic sense of purpose to define and apply the trends in international development. IDEMA first took to the stage through a grant from UPS Foundation to render Turkish SMEs more resilient to natural disasters. With the gained momentum, IDEMA had developed special projects with vital institutions such as the U.S. Department of State, World Bank and European Commission. We developed and continue to develop our collaborations and networks within the scope of the development perspective since its establishment.
Throughout its nearly 10-year experience, we strengthened our position and magnified impact in the Turkish socio-economic development ecosystem with an innovative project management approach and fruitful collaborations with a diverse list of NGOs, private sector organizations and local and central government institutions. Over the years of its cooperation and collaboration with United Nations, international investment institutions, private companies, national and international NGOs, domestic and foreign trade chambers and public institutions, we developed a particular know-how in implementing multi-partnered community development projects and field assessments.
