BITE – Building Integration Through Entrepreneurship

The project aims to contribute to the social and economic integration in EU countries of newly arrived migrants from Sub-Saharan Africa by accompanying them in the creation of small businesses that have positive social and environmental impact in their countries of residence, through a tailored business acceleration process.

Over 100 migrants have been selected in ItalySweden and Greece to receive training and mentoring on how to start their own business in Europe and in their country of origin. Furthermore, by modelling every phase of the project through a toolbox, partners enable local authorities and NGOs across the EU to replicate the approach in diverse socio-economic contexts and with limited financial input.


Within the project, E4Impact will be in charge of the following activities:

  • improving how to do business in the EU to 100 selected migrants;
  • enhancing migrants business skills;
  • building their sustainable business models;
  • support their business in their start-up phase.
