The general objective of this initiative is to support the creation, the improvement and the wider dissemination of support schemes for migrant entrepreneurs in order to help migrants to become self-employed and build a successful enterprise (profit-generating and/or with social objectives).

Priorities and funded actions:

– To bring together relevant players at national and regional levels into trans-national networks, to work together based on the existing evidence of what is effective and to achieve better impact;
– To exchange experience and peer-learning between participating organisations, and on furthering information and research on what is effective to a wider circle of stakeholders and organisations.

– Creation of a network for migrant entrepreneurship support;
– Organisation of events and peer-learning activities;
– Evaluation, improvement and further development of existing support schemes;
– Wider dissemination of information, guidance and advice;
– Participating in a broader European network and building a community.  

Among financed actions
– The evaluation of support to migrant entrepreneurs offered by participating organisations, including by using appropriate benchmarking tools and peer-review mechanisms, and by monitoring progress of the beneficiaries after the end of the support programme;
– The collection and exchange of data on the results and impacts of activities so far developed to support migrant entrepreneurs;
– The harmonisation of methodologies – based on best practice – in order to gain efficiency, and the pooling of resources between member organisations in order to enhance the sustainability of support schemes.
