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 have since expanded the programme to run also in Stockholm. Next co-hort starts in October 2018 and will offer support to women entrepreneurs located in Mellansverige and in south Sweden.
