Startup Refugees is a network reaching throughout Finland aiming at engaging the mental potential of asylum seekers and to combine it with the zeal of Finnish entrepreneurship and give the 100-year-old Finland a new boost through new innovations!
Invited by Riku Rantala and Tuomas Milonoff, Startup Refugees is a community of 350 businesses and organisations supporting business and employment opportunities for asylum seekers.
In 2016, Startup Refugees piloted a model for rapid integration into society, in which the professional potential of these future Finns is identified and tapped into while they are still living at reception centres. In 2017, the project will be scaled up and introduced throughout the country.
