Fostering Migrant Entrepreneurship across Europe
The Entrepreneurship 2020 Action Plan adopted in January 2013 and the EU Action Plan on the integration of third-country nationals launched in 2016 set migrant entrepreneurship and the economic independence of migrants as key priorities of the EU comprehensive approach to migration. Find out more about the EU Policy framework HERE.
MEGA - the Migrant Entrepreneurship Growth Agenda network helps cities, regions and national actors to strengthen policies that support businesses with an international background. Partner networks in France, Germany, Italy and Spain are leading National Coalition building processes feeding into an EU-wide network which advocates for improved support for migrant entrepreneurship on all levels.
