Our Aspire Business refugee entrepreneurship training programmes are designed to provide comprehensive training and resources to refugees interested in becoming entrepreneurs.
The programmes provide refugees with the knowledge, skills, and resources needed to create and operate successful businesses. They also assist entrepreneurs in navigating the various challenges of starting a business, such as legal, financial, and marketing.
We aim to foster a welcoming and supportive environment for refugees to share their stories, experiences, and expertise, while also creating a network of successful business owners and entrepreneurs who can provide mentorship and assistance to refugees.
The programme also includes:
- Weekly online business training sessions
- Regular coaching and mentoring sessions
- Testing and graduation events
“The Aspire programme provided knowledge, structure and flexibility, and it was an empowering experience which was exactly what I needed – to not be defined by a forced migration background but actually valued for my skills and experiences.”
