Startup Support


Turning asylum seekers into entrepreneurs! Startup support from Startup Refugees promote the employment ideas, and integration into society, of entrepreneurial people who are being granted asylum in Finland. The seeds of businesses can already be sown in reception centres.

The Startup Refugees programme maps out the skills, entrepreneurial experience and business ideas of residents at reception centres – and offers startup support for the best ideas. The first micro enterprises could for example support the statutory tasks of reception centres – housing and food provision.
