Ilgi Evecan

Board Member

Ilgi is an innovation leader, creative strategist and entrepreneur with international experience in different markets from the Nordics and Baltics to Central Asia within telecoms and the wine and spirits industry. She also has board experience at a pan-Nordic company.

She is actively working to support global female leaderships as part of the community she established in 2019 in Istanbul and works as a mentor at different agencies in Stockholm to support women as she finds it incredibly inspiring to follow the journey of brilliant young minds who whole-heartedly go after their dreams and goals.

She believes her greatest power is finding the hidden treasure in the unconventional and she is at her best when she puts her “Create hat” on.

She says “I promised myself to have my next board assignment should have a “doing good” component hence my journey with Tedx started. I believe that we all need to use the status and the power we have to create change where we can and spread ideas that will take our community and society forward.”
