Event description
After a 2019 successful Entrepreneurship Bootcamp in partnership with IOM-UN Migration , we are excited to launch the 2020 Edition

About this Event

During our previous bootcamps , workshops and surveys, we discovered the following findings based on the feedback from participants and overall inquiries from other interested diaspora entrepreneurs;

● Cult of ‘warm introductions’ locks out diaspora/migrants who often arrive from outside the EU from entrepreneurship ecosystems

● Ethnic minorities are hugely underrepresented in both founder circles & investors, lacking role models for inspiration

● Diaspora/emigrants are categorized risky both in their countries of origin and host countries, thus missing out on funding opportunities for their innovative business ideas

● Only 17% founders in EU are diverse (Atamico’s state of European tech 2019)

● No diaspora/emigrants focused Platform to support then through the journey or resources

● No migrant focused funding program fronted by diaspora themselves
