"The European Programme where refugees and migrants can grow their business!"

EUStartGees is a co-financed programme by the European Union to support young refugees to design, develop and grow their business ideas and build successful enterprises.


The programme is focused on young refugees and has identified entrepreneurship or self-employment as an opportunity to succeed in their hosting community.

It will be implemented in Austria, Finland, Italy and Spain.

EUStartGees has designed a support programme, that aims to offer specialised training and mentoring. This includes the promotion of professional competences, support in growing and setting up migrant’s businesses from the idea stage as well as developing MVPs (Minimum ViableProducts) to pre-launch their product to the market.


In order to do so, EUStartGees will be providing a network of support for refugee entrepreneurs, developed by the Consortium partners, so refugees can have access to specialists, complimentary workshops, meet-ups, and co-working spaces.

The programme will be divided into 3 main stages:

Think & Design

“At that moment i realized that a door was closing and a new chapter in my life was about to begin. Thanks to my skills I had a new key in my hand to open a large door full of hope and new ideas.” 

In this interview, we are featuring Carolina Guerra, a “bold” 34-year-old woman from Ecuador. She will tell us how a short trip to Italy about 11 years ago has changed her entire life.
