ME4Change has just opened applications for their Migrapreneurs program, an entrepreneurship training course for participants to gain practical knowledge in starting their business. The course will start in spring 2018 and will be delivered by highly qualified trainers in the city of Milan, Helsinki, Berlin and Brussels, with some online sessions.
The initiative, whose name derives from “Migrants Empowerment for Change” is the result of a cooperation between European partners, including Migration Hub in Germany, X23 in Italy, and Junior Achievement in Finland.
After the course, entrepreneurs will have access to a mentoring scheme to help find opportunities for their companies to grow, and a pitch event, where they can meet potential investors and get it really off the ground.
The course is open to migrants – with no EU member state citizenship – between 18 and 34 years old who have been living in Italy, Finland, Germany or Belgium for at least one year.
