According to OECD (e.g. OECD 2010) migrants have an important role in creating jobs and improving national economy. At the same time, unemployment among the migrant women is higher than that of the others.
Kaleidoscope: supporting female migrant entrepreneurs project aims to promote entrepreneurship among migrant women residing in the EU. The project develops an online educative programme and tools to support entrepreneurship. The programme will address soft skills (based on Enterprise Circle and Creative Project Canvas), gender and migrant dimensions, and multicultural aspects.
Trainers and tutors will be provided a guide to support the process. The material can be used by other migrants as well. The project is co-funded by the EU’s Erasmus+, Strategic Partnership Programme.
Kaleidoscope project consortium:
- Vaasan ammattikorkeakoulu (Finland), coordinator
- Consorzio Materahub Industrie Culturali e Creative (Italy)
- Inova Consultancy (UK)
- Elan Interculturel (France)
