offers newcomers the opportunity to obtain funding, training and expertise for their starting businesses.


More than 70 million people worldwide have been forcibly displaced. Most of these people lack access to education, knowledge and networks to develop their talents and to make a living for themselves and their families.


Forward Inc (FI) fosters the socio-economic empowerment of newcomers with a refugee background and their integration into local communities. FI does this by providing training, coaching and support by a network of university students, companies and investors. In a 10-week online Digital Entrepreneurship Program, participants receive top-class training on principles of entrepreneurship, digital skills and on the local professional and socio-cultural context.
