HOW WILL YOUR COMMUNITY FARE IN 10 YEARS TIME?
Covid-19 will change the makeup of our towns and cities. Business’ will disappear. Unemployment and inequality might rise. Inhabitants may move to get more space. As a result some places will experience depopulation, while others will grow. Is your municipality prepared?
At Startup Migrants, we believe that data-driven policies and inclusive entrepreneurship are essential to thrive in the future.
WHY ARE MIGRANT FOUNDERS ESSENTIAL FOR YOUR COMMUNITY?
The number of migrant founders in your community can serve as a thermometer of the health of the local entrepreneurial ecosystem. Communities with a strong entrepreneurial culture are characterised by a relatively high proportion of women and immigrants starting and running businesses.
21% of all European founders are migrants. 36% of them come from outside of EU.
Businesses driven by migrants are 50% more likely to hire other migrants.
In Sweden, 95.000 migrant founders have created approximately 300.000 jobs.

We put data to work
During an economical downturn many, especially migrants, will turn to entrepreneurship to make a living. The goal of each community should be that these companies become as successful as possible. That requires good local policies.
At Startup Migrants we search through European datasets and statistics to find out which communities pursue policies that foster successful new businesses. We give other communities insight into our data and advice om how to develop and implement good local policies.
With bold policies and data-driven decisions cities can help new businesses to grow faster and create new jobs.

WHAT PEOPLE SAY?
I just finished reading Startup Migrants and it is amazing! It has my juices pumping so much, my wife has threatened with forcing me to wear the mask around the house to stop talking about entrepreneurship and migrants. Seriously, though, it was very inspiring and helpful to see so many pieces carefully placed together in a coherent way to show a bit of the way forward in regards to migration and entrepreneurship.
A thorough research on the importance of migrants and their role in today’s global economy which is thirsty for creativity and problemsolvers. The book will present you migrants’ untold stories which I found inspiring. Furthermore, the book is rich with updated educational materials which makes it a must as a school textbook.
