EMEN Annual event: Innovative financing solutions for migrant entrepeneurs? Cross your own borders!
20 June 2019
09:00 - 17:00
Innovative financing solutions for migrant entrepeneurs? Cross your own borders! Join us at the 2d international event of the European Migrant Entrepreneur Network (EMEN). An event without long speeches. Instead brief, thought provoking talks, a thriving market where innovations are shown, pitches, interactive workshops, debates, and inspiring encounters.
We will try to answer questions as:
- Are starting migrant entrepreneurs really that different from native entrepreneurs (or entrepreneurs without a migrant background)? Do we need to treat them as a special target group?
- Do we have to set up special schemes to finance their new businesses? Businesses that for sure will be helpful to them to participate in society, to break out of exclusion, to add value to society.
- Or do they also have their own ways of mobilising finance?
At this event you will be challenged to leave your comfort zone, cross the border of what you are used to do. And when you leave, you may feel confused, inspired, worried, intrigued and informed.
