Newcomer Entrepreneurship Support (NES)
NES empowers incubators, accelerators and other entrepreneurship services to become more effective and inclusive by catering for the needs of newcomer entrepreneurs, with a focus on refugees and non-EU migrants. Organizations joining the network can tap into experiences from across Europe, learn about successful models and implement new activities. The two–year project was implemented in Frankfurt, Hamburg, London, Milan, Paris and Stockholm and was funded by J.P.Morgan.
