Meet Startup Refugees Entrepreneurs

Meet Startup Refugees Entrepreneurs and #BuyWithPurpose

Startup Refugees has supported hundreds of immigrants and refugees to chase their dream of becoming an entrepreneur.
We have organized entrepreneurship courses, trainings, coaching sessions, and market validations all around Finland.
As a result, more than 200 newcomers have developed their business skills with us.

Here, we introduce some of the companies created by those individuals.
We invite you to get to know their stories, become a part of their journey, and #BuyWithPurpose.
