Happy to announce that the launch of a full entrepreneurship program for ‘newcomers’ at the University of Applied Sciences in Amsterdam, in these upcoming months. This program is specifically designed for refugees who are interested in creating their own businesses in the Netherlands.

The upcoming workshops will provide you with useful information and the right tools in creating your own start-up. The program will also contain several lectures from people working in the field of entrepreneurship. To keep the program fresh and exciting, we will alternate between lectures and entrepreneurship based exercises.

WHY?
