Startup My Business Weekend
Between 2 and 4 March, the EIT, as part of its pilot Migrant Initiative, is organising a Startup My Business Weekend with Startup Refugees for newcomers in Helsinki.
The weekend will give the participants knowledge on how to start a business in Finland and offer necessary skills and networks to move forward. Startup Refugees network members will offer knowledge, mentoring and support in entrepreneurship. Participants will gain an opportunity to develop their business idea and learn practical skills such as the basics of marketing and obtaining finance.
