About the project
24 months starting 1st of June 2017
120 migrant entrepreneurs supported
Providing first generation migrants with routes to social and economic inclusion through encouraging and supporting their entrepreneurial talents
The Fresh Start programme will support 120 migrant entrepreneurs across 3 EU states over 2 years, offering them the chance to acquire the skills and abilities necessary for a future as an entrepreneur.
Our aim is very much to go beyond the simple provision of support. We want to develop and pilot a platform that can be replicated and scaled, to create an ecosystem of support services to empower and enable migrants, nurturing their entrepreneurial spirit. We provide access to local knowledge, networks and businesses to help migrants to navigate the system in their host country, and to support their start-up enterprises.
Fresh Start will offer support across three dimensions identified as best practice by EC publications:
Competencies and skills
Through the delivery of individual and group business support, legal advice etc.
Through mentoring and networking events
Access to a business support community
