REstart empowers refugee entrepreneurs with locally crowdsourced investments.
Countless of refugees in Europa have valuable education and experience, but remain stuck in menial jobs, isolated from mainstream society and ecomomy.
The greatest barrier of entrepreneurship is lack of access to traditional financing.
Together we can change that.
Unlike traditional microfinance that is impersonal and charges up to 100% interest, we leverage shared equity in all of our companies to liberate borrowers and ourselves, funding our operations from within. we are literally invested in the succes of our clients.
Thus, investments are triple fold: refugees gain financial independence while welfare budgets are vastly reduced, tax revunue is increased, and cross-cultural partnerships are formed.
We are in the start up phase and currently speeking:
- Impact investors to partner with as we grow
- Partnerships with refugees-entrepreneur support orgs across Europe
- Marketing & sales ambassadors - Interns & student collaborators
