Education Programme

What is it?

Fresh Start offers a tailored business support programme for young refugees migrants that want to develop their entrepreneurial skills.


The programme is designed to support refugees who:

  • want to increase their employability

  • Would like to start their own business

  • Already have an idea and want to put it in practice

  • Already have started a business and need to grow or overcome specific       difficulties



Fresh Start organises co-creation sessions where experts in entrepreneurship or education and refugees design assessments, workshops, 2Dgame, networks of support services that introduce refugees into the job market of the adopted country: validation of education and talents, soft skills, intercultural awareness, higher employability and entrepreneurship skills.
