Komeeda's Social Impact: Gastrodiplomacy w/ LIFE
Over the past few months our dear friends at the Center for International Private Enterprise (CIPE) have launched the LIFE project, a State Department backed initiative to help Syrian and Yemeni refugees launch their culinary startups. Komeeda teamed up last month with CIPE to travel to Turkey to mentor LIFE resident entrepreneurs and participate as a judge of the competition which provided funding to three startups.
Komeeda is proud to support CIPE and their efforts to help refugees in Turkey reach economic security through food. We will be sharing updates on this great initiative regularly.
