Robust Small Business


Sağlam KOBI is a disaster preparedness initiative that has been developed in 2013. We deliver training of trainees, as well as coordinate working groups meetings and activities to acquire and share expertise and consultancy from the leading firms regarding their respective sectors.

UPS, the World Economic Forum, the US Chamber of Commerce, and Corporate Social Responsibility Association of Turkey (CSR-Turkey) have developed a disaster preparedness initiative for small and medium size enterprises, entitled “Business Disaster Resiliency Program forTurkey” or “Sağlam Kobi” in Turkish. The goal is to engage the private and public sector and civil society organizations to work together and identify best practices to enhance the resilience of small and medium sized enterprises (SME) in Turkey.

Through this collective effort we aspire to provide SMEs with a suite of resources designed to assist businesses of all sizes. Businesses that only have a few minutes can access simple tips to prepare themselves and their staff for disasters, through reading the unique content on  website, disaster preparedness checklist and 20 tips for preparedness.
