The promotion of migrant entrepreneurship is a challenge in all European countries. Migrants form an important entrepreneurial resource and make a major contribution to business dynamism.
However, migrant entrepreneurs apart from the same barriers as others entrepreneurs should contend with language, cultural differences, unfamiliarity with regulatory frameworks as well as the risks of social exclusion and prejudice. Consequently, what should be guaranteed is that all services to entrepreneurs are designed inclusively and with diversity in mind.
By sharing practices, experiences and learnt lessons on migrant entrepreneurship across and between public administrations, business development support and financial organisations, social enterprises, non-profit organisations, educational institutions and other public and private organisations supporting migrant entrepreneurship, EMEN aims at supporting schemes for migrant entrepreneurs.
