In July 2019, WDI’s Amy Gillett and Kristin Babbie Kelterborn traveled to Turkey as part of the Institute’s work on the LIFE Project. The pair led workshops on entrepreneurship curriculum development, took part in a business pitch competition and met with program graduates. Using some of the photos they took while in Turkey, Gillett talked about the work they did and the food entrepreneurs they met.
