Startup community welcomes newcomers with refugee background!
Many newcomers with refugee background come to Norway with higher education, experience, good ideas, initiatives and perspectives which can be relevant for the Norwegian startup community. Inclusion is good for society and diversity is good for business!
So, what’s the problem? Lack of network makes it harder for newcomers to find a relevant job – this is where the startup community can get to work!
Are you a startup hub, a startup, or just interested in learning more about this new initiative? Join STARTUPLAB, SoCentral, Aleap, Oslo Business Region and Forskningsparken – Oslo Science Park in welcoming newcomers to our communities!
We are working together with In:progress, a social startup that facilitates connections between newcomers, organizations and startups.
