Supporting migrant entrepreneurs

Oct 1, 2020 | News

(01 October 2020) – The EMEN project, which ended on 30 September 2020, has produced a final publication entitled “Inclusive Ecosystems: towards a comprehensive support scheme for migrant entrepreneurs in Europe”.


For three years, AEIDL coordinated the three ‘communities of practice’ of the European Migrant Entrepreneurship Network (EMEN), which gathers organisations supporting migrant entrepreneurs.

Funded by the EU’s COSME programme, EMEN focused on sharing approaches across and between public administrations, business development support and financial organisations, social enterprises, non-profit organisations, educational institutions and other public and private bodies supporting migrant entrepreneurship in cities, regions and countries.

The final report, written by Patricia Martínez Sáez (AEIDL) with other EMEN partners, explains why the different components of a supportive ecosystem are needed and how they can be improved, as well as provide a selection of good examples currently supporting migrant entrepreneurs.

The project ended on 30 September 2020 but the EMEN website and social media will remain open.
