The EMEN project has decided to team up with the Young Migrant Capacity Building (YMCB) project in the framework of the LinkedIn Group! The EMEN LinkedIn Group will become a joint LinkedIn Group for both projects to reach out to a wider audience of organisations supporting migrants entrepreneurs and keep them informed about innovative ways of helping this group in a comprehensive way.
Young Migrants Capacity Building, a project funded by DG GROW, aims at creating a coordinated programme to provide young migrants with the means to develop their own business through a journey of education and training, mentoring and access to finances. The project brings together seven partners actively working in the field of migrants’ entrepreneurship and business incubation for youth and social enterprises.
The YMCB support scheme is based on an innovative approach towards creating the appropriate ecosystem to support young migrants entrepreneurship, which is being tested in four target locations, Vienna (Austria), Brussels (Belgium), Florence (Italy), and the Netherlands, with the aim to scaling up and replicating it in other territories. A 6 months Training & Mentoring programme will start on February 2020 and will be delivered in national languages (German, French, Italian and Dutch) and/or English.
Furthermore, an open call for mentors will be launched in the implementing locations to join the programme, share their knowledge and guide prospective young migrant entrepreneurs on their journey towards starting their own business. A Community of Practice on Young Migrant Entrepreneurs will be established to disseminate the results and foster replication and transferability.
In the spirit of innovation and smart cooperation, we invite all those organisations providing support schemes for migrant entrepreneurs to join and share with this large community their ideas, concerns, comments, and practices so that together, we can keep improving the services prospective migrant entrepreneurs received to ensure their successful labour market integration in the EU society.
