The Tent Partnership for Refugees, founded by Hamdi Ulukaya, CEO and founder of Chobani, works with the private sector to develop and implement opportunities that support refugees. Tent works to integrate refugees into supply chains, invest in and hire refugees, and deliver services they need. Tent knows that refugees are economically-productive workers, suppliers, entrepreneurs, and customers that can drive a healthy bottom line for businesses and support local economies. At the same time, businesses are creating jobs for refugees, helping integrate them into communities, and offering stability.
Tent has impacted over 200,000 refugees in 34 countries. Palladium is now joining Tent’s list of over 100 partners, including several Fortune 500 companies such as Unilever, Microsoft and Starbucks.
Palladium and Tent will work together to identify opportunities for refugees in our work with corporations, governments, and non-profits as well as our partners’ work. We will continue to create sustainable business ecosystems that are inclusive of refugees and educate the local authorities, governments, and corporations we work with to develop connections between refugee populations and market development.
Our history of working with refugees
Through our work in impact investing, economic growth, workforce development, healthcare, and emergency humanitarian response, we have learned the potential of connecting refugee communities with the private sector to create viable business opportunities.
