c/o Business – our platform for foreign-born entrepreneurs

Impact Invest is running an accelerator and investment readiness program for foreign born entrepreneurs. Our objective is to support a faster integration process for refugees and non-EU migrants. Companies led by people with a foreign background tend to employ other migrants to a higher degree than native companies.
As an intermediary of venture funding,  Impact Invest also strive to contribute to more equal access to funding and venture capital for start-ups – in a market which is today lacking in diversity.

The first year 2016/2017 was a pilot for entrepreneurs primarily running their businesses in Skåne or Blekinge. We had very good results and Unionen featured Care of Business in their publication “Släpp loss kraften.” We have since expanded the programme  and have so far supported 37 teams in Skåne and Mellansverige.

Next co-hort starts 27 October 2018 and will offer support to women entrepreneurs located in Mellansverige.coBusiness_logo_gul
