Since the program was launched over a year ago, FAIRE has been supporting three refugee entrepreneurs with innovative projects: Ghaees Alshorbajy, founder of Kaoukab; Rooh Savâr, founder of Jahan.Info; and Ousmane Bah, teh man behind Solodou.
Once again this year, FAIRE is giving three entrepreneurs from forced migration the opportunity to develop their business plan. Their program includes a loan of 20,000 euros, as well as tailor-made support, including mentoring, coaching and networking sessions.
To benefit from FAIRE’s financial support program, your project must meet three criteria:
Your project must be based in France
It must have a strong economic impact (at least an SME)
At least one of the founders must have a forced migration path.
The program is open to all sectors and industries.
Deadline for applications: May 9th. Apply here.
