About the entrepreneur

Say hello Gökçe Erol. The basic facts about Gökçe’ s life are easy to spell out. Born in Turkey’s third largest city, Izmir, she studied Design and Communication before moving to Sweden 7 months ago. Personable and vivacious, Gökçe comes to the first Care of Business workshop half an hour early, bright-eyed, smiling and with two large trays of homemade Turkish desserts. She wants to introduce the group to her culture and hear our feedback on a business idea she’s toying with. Conversation flows and before we know it the group is now a community. Gökçe’ s personable manner turns out to be the icing on the cake. At school, she excelled at both sciences and humanities; she played the guitar, sang and took part in plays. When it came to studying at university, Gökçe chose to follow her biggest passion – that for art and design - instead of the family tradition of becoming a doctor. In the years that followed, she worked as a graphic designer, photographer, assistant director and script writer; dedicated her free time to causes that are important to her such as women’s rights. Gökçe is now tapping into her creative side while building up her knowledge of running a business. Through her project Creative Seeds she is weaving together design, sustainability and the joy of planting a seed. The result – a personalized greeting card, made out of recycled paper to which flower seeds had been added. Placed in soil the greeting card turns into a flower.
