An innovative approach towards creating the appropriate ecosystem to support young migrant entrepreneurship through a education & training, mentoring and access to finance. 

Evidence has shown that migrants are more likely to start businesses than their native-born peers (OECD, International Migration Outlook, 2011). However, entrepreneurship among migrants can only in part be explained as a result of the migration selection process. For many migrants (both low or high-skilled), entrepreneurship is a strategy to overcome obstacles with regard to labour market integration and to upward social mobility. Creating the appropriate ecosystem - with targeted training and education (and education of trainers), mentoring, networking, financial support - is thus crucial to enabling prospective entrepreneurs fulfil their dreams and reach their objectives; exactly what the project YMCB is seeking to accomplish in Austria, Belgium, Italy and the Netherlands.

In this project, ZSI is leading WP3 which comprises of developing and implementing a mentoring scheme in the target countries.
