“Future support of the migrant entrepreneurial ecosystem in Europe”: join us for the last #EMENwebinar !

About the webinars

The EMEN project has organised a series of fourwebinars on the main aspects of business development: financial, human & social capital. The webinars are covering many topics that are relevant to both organizations that provide business support, as well as Migrant Entrepreneurs themselves.

The fourth webinar: a Policy Roundtable on the topic “Future support of the migrant entrepreneurial ecosystem in Europe”

11th of December, 2019 – From 5 to 6 PM

With the final webinar of our network’s series, we want to open the discussion on “Future support of the migrant entrepreneurial ecosystem in Europe” to the policy level!

It will take place as a live streaming of a policy round table with DG GROW, EASME and Generali representatives, broadcasted on a webinar. By doing so, participants to the webinar will be able to interact with them. 

In the course of our last three webinars, we gathered insights from the sector, along the three essential dimensions of business support: financial-, human- and social-capital. On December 11th we will finally conclude our webinar series by inviting representatives of the EC’s DG Grow (for Internal Market, Industry, Entrepreneurship and SMEs), EASME (Executive Agency for Small and Medium-sized Enterprises), Generali Deutschland and a migrant entrepreneur, Beslan Kabartai .

Together with the sector (you!), we want to take the unique opportunity to do both: to discuss the findings of the preceding webinars and to highlight learnings from the past EU-support schemes. Furthermore, we will take a look at the European Commission’s future support for Migrant Entrepreneurship. We’ll contrast the discussion by showcasing the potential of CSR-driven projects by reference to Generali’s “The Human Safety Net Programme” (THSN).
