There is a limited amount of jobs in Finland at the moment. We support the business ideas of newcomers, and eventually create more jobs for everyone. We believe that working and using one’s talent is the most efficient way to integrate into a new society.

Join Startup Refugees and we will match you with people who will best benefit from your expertise. Every skill is needed. Every hour of your time will make a difference.
