Migrant Entrepreneurship Support – Access to finance

April 3, 2019 @ 10:30 am - April 4, 2019 @ 3:30 pm


Are you in­­terested in access to finance for underserved communities? Do you want to meet the key players in Europe? Do you want to learn from them? Would you like to influence policy makers? Are you committed to improve the entrepreneurial ecosystem for migrants & refugees?

During the joint MAGNET and M-UP conference we will shed light the needs and barriers of migrant entrepreneurs, especially in accessing finance. To do this, we have invited a number of representatives from the migrant community as well as organisations supporting them in the startup and development of their business ventures. We are also reviewing the experiences of organizations providing financial and non financial services to migrant businesses. And finally, participating policy makers will share about their efforts to improving the business environment for migrant entrepreneurs as well as their pain points.

International stakeholders attending the conference will have an opportunity to contribute to discussions on practical solutions for cooperation aiming to improve experience of migrant entrepreneurs through plenary sessions, interactive workshops and networking activities, in a warm and friendly city.
