Project “BITE – Building Integration Through Entrepreneurship”

The action “BITE – Building Integration Through Entrepreneurship” aims to contribute to the social and economic integration in EU countries of migrants from Sub-Saharan Africa by accompanying them in the creation of small businesses that have positive social and environmental impact in their country of residence and country of origin, through a tailored business acceleration process.

To do so, a consortium composed of leading research institutes, service providers, local authorities and NGOs will reach out to Sub-saharan african diasporas in Italy, Greece and Sweden to raise awareness and collect applications for a training and mentoring scheme on entrepreneurship.

The scheme will then help migrants gain knowledge and develop the skills, tools and network needed to start their own business. By modelling every phase of the project through a toolbox, partners will enable local authorities and NGOs across the EU to replicate the approach in diverse socio-economic contexts and with limited financial input.
