The Second Generation 2016/2017
The Second Generation
The new grant holders of the “ANKOMMER.Perspektive Deutschland” scheme were selected in November. Fifteen teams were picked from among some 100 applications. From “Ateliersiebenuhr” to “Willkommen in der Pflege” they included a wide range of exciting start-up initiatives.
Based on the experience of the first round, the ANKOMMER scheme takes stock of the economic integration of refugees:
- Catering, hospitality and skilled trades are the top industries in terms of swift and durable integration.
- Migrants and refugees are actively engaged in developing solutions.
The ANKOMMER projects illustrate the growing significance of social entrepreneurs for developing solutions to the challenges our society faces today.
