7 December 2017: launch of EMEN, the European Migrant Entrepreneurship Network

Social Challenges Innovation Platform: Launched on 4 Sep 2017, this platform matches “challenge owners” – local governments, organisations, NGOs and companies facing a problem which needs solving – with the entrepreneurs, start-ups and social innovators that can solve them. Each challenged will be matched with 3 solutions. Their providers will receive a grant of 30,000 euros and a six-month mentoring programme to help them develop their idea. The very best entrepreneurs will then work with the challenge owners to turn their concept into reality. Website:
