Success Stories

WEConnect International certified women’s business enterprise Iglo Architects was founded in Istanbul in 2001 by two architects, with  as its current managing partner.  

"It is difficult for an architect to run a company. They don’t teach how to run a company at the faculty of architecture," says Esen. "An architect literally has no idea about taxes, financial statements, law, hr, pr...basically knows nothing about management unless they have a corporate background where they can learn these things."
