About Us Extended

Welcome to the ecosystem for migrant and refugee entrepreneurs.

Startups Without Borders connects the most ambitious refugee and migrant entrepreneurs with resources to grow their business, while providing investors with an entry-point to under-the-radar startups with disruptive potential.

What We Do

Content & Media

We don’t tell visual stories. We craft pieces of inspiration. Startups Without Borders is setting off to raise the profile of refugee and migrant entrepreneurs, defying preconceptions and inspiring younger generations by providing role models for their future ventures. We are telling the stories of the architects of the future.


The refugee startup ecosystem, in one place. Our events connect migrant and refugee entrepreneurs with startup ecosystems in Europe and the Middle East. From our cozy Mentor Mingle and Startup Mingle series to the SWB summit, we gather investors, incubators, mentors, and corporations with a passion for creating new realities.

The Directory

We’re launching the SWB Directory, a platform for business angels and investors to access an incredible pool of high-potential migrant and refugee-led startups, while offering entrepreneurs exclusive resources and access to opportunities. Sign up to the beta version of the platform and get first-hand access!

Our Core Values


Because we believe there are new realities in the making. And we want to support those shaping them.

Empathy, not Sympathy

Because we don’t want to give them an opportunity; we believe that they are the opportunity


Because we want to change perceptions. Because it’s time migrants are seen not as job seekers but job creators; not at technology consumers but innovators.

Diversity and innovation

Because if we all think the same way, then no one is thinking.
