Our investigation trough Central Europe is continuing, another race for Burgenland district and the University of West Bohemia!
The 23rd October our team visited the Social Impact Lab in Munchen, deepening their knowledge about "THSN Program for Refugee Start Ups"


The Social Impact Lab in Munich was founded in 2017 and there are several across Germany, these organizations are focused on:

  • Inclusive Innovation
  • Innovation in Education
  • Innovation in the welfare sector
  • International Cooperation
  • Funding & Financing

The THSN Program for Refugee Start Ups, part of the international initiative "The Human Safety Net" of the Generali Group, is addressed in supporting migrants starting their own bussines. The Social Impact Lab in Munich helps with this program fill this gap for refugees who want to become entrepreneurs.

The participants of the program learn the basics of entrepreneurship: how to develop an idea and how to create a  business plan. They benefit from the broad support of professionals, including coaching and training, and can set their co-working spaces to interact with other emerging entrepreneurs.
