Boosting Migrant Entrepreneur Networks:

An online conference throughout September 2020
Diesis Network invites you to the final online event of the EMEN project, in collaboration with M-UP and MAGNET

Make your September count.

After months of lockdown that has disproportionately affected the world’s disadvantaged communities, especially those with their own businesses to run, the need to support these people is more important than ever. The Growing Europe online conference brings together migrants, refugees, policy makers, NGOs and the private sector to focus on ‘Boosting Migrant Entrepreneurship Networks’.

The events are organised by three EU-funded projects, EMEN, M-UP and MAGNET, that work on topics of migrant entrepreneurship in Europe.
As a partner of the EMEN project, Diesis Network is excited to take part in these great promising online sessions throughout September!
