Migrant Entrepreneurship Project (ME)
For society migrant entrepreneurship is a powerful driver of economic growth and job creation since it creates new companies and jobs, opens up new markets, and nurtures new skills and capabilities. For each migrant and refugee, having the possibility to achieve self-employment have an impact on all aspects of daily life, including an income, gives identity and gives life a meaning and purpose. Recent research and statistics show that integration of migrants is slowing down, not only in partner countries, but in most European countries that have received refugees in recent years. This fact is an opportunity to rethink the strategy and find new ways to succeed. To stimulate, train and follow up more migrants to become entrepreneurs will therefore provide major results for individuals, families, communities and society as a whole.
