Factory is a community-oriented incubation program that supports teams creating innovative and sustainable solutions to the problems in the information and media ecosystem.

The problem

Information disorder

Disorders that occur in the production, distribution, and consumption stages of information, such as intentional misdirection, damage with accurate information, or dissemination of deceptive information without intent.

Problems created by key actors in the information and media ecosystem

The absence of areas in which people who can develop innovative and diverse ideas or have different experiences can collaborate, monopolization, and polarization as a result of problems in media ownership.

Lack of access to support mechanisms for innovative model and solution creators

Lack of intermediary organizations that can bring new social initiatives in the information ecosystem together with appropriate networks and support them in the areas of strategy and business model.

The solution


Providing initiatives with access to appropriate business models and support mechanisms


Creating a collaborative knowledge ecosystem by bringing initiatives together

With the mission of bringing together and supporting teams that develop innovative and sustainable solutions to the problems of the information ecosystem and bringing them together with support mechanisms, Factory started its activities in 2019 as one of the programs developed by Teyit to improve the information ecosystem. In 2022, Teyit was positioned as one of the founding members of Factory.
