Regional support for aspiring migrant entrepreneurs

Around 46% of the population of Brussels holds a non-EU nationality. These people face additional difficulties if they want to set up their own business. They include a lack of knowledge of local and national regulations, a lack of information and support services tailored to the needs of migrants and a lack of financing for business start-up.

These are the obstacles that microStart and set out to overcome by responding to the Council of Europe Development Bank’s (CEB) call for proposals under the Partnership and Financing for Migrant Integration (PAFMI) project.

Firstly, the project aims to raise awareness and give better information to migrants about the requirements to set up a business in Belgium through' 1819 information and guidance service, and to support them throughout their entrepreneurial journey, while offering the possibility to access the microcredits offered by microStart.

Secondly, it plans to bring together the partners of Brussels’ entrepreneurial ecosystem to ensure that their services are better adapted, through better knowledge of the target audience, shared tools and an advocacy to reduce barriers to business creation for migrants.

This project is funded as part of a wider agreement between the Council of Europe Development Bank (CEB) and the European Commission (Directorate-General for Migration and Home Affairs); its aim is to improve the inclusion of migrants in EU Member States through the development of new partnerships and new forms of financing.
