 EMEN 2nd Annual Event                                         

Thank you for attending the EMEN Annual Conference!

On the 20th of June took place the 2nd EMEN Annual Event entitled “Access to finance for migrant entrepreneurs? Cross your own borders”. The event was hosted and organised by The Hague University of Applied Sciences, who is also the partner in charge of the Community of Practice (CoP) 2 on Access to finance.

The event was a great opportunity to learn and interact with a wide range of actors: from migrants entrepreneurs, to professors, diaspora representatives, NGOs, Micro Finance Institutions, associations, foundations, EU institutions, students and citizens!
There was no time to get bored: the Market place presented more than 20 projects and a set of associations active in the field of access to finance. Plus, there were four conferences, two rounds of workshops (with 4 workshops each) and two rounds of pitches! More than 70 persons attended the event!
