About Us Extended

Welcome to the ecosystem for migrant and refugee entrepreneurs.

 We support, train and connect migrant and refugee entrepreneurs with opportunities and resources to build their businesses, wherever they are. Because we don’t want to give them an opportunity; we believe that they are the opportunity.

What We Do

Content & PR

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.

SWB Academy

Our SWB Academy aims to train the next tech legends. From 3D printing, to blockchain and coding, our bootcamps leverage on the talent and potential of entrepreneurs on the move to build new realities. Our programs are built to bring legends to life, wherever they are.

Meet the Team

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.
