In partnership with Jumpstart, the Angels + Syrian Refugee Entrepreneurs Program is a unique joint program aimed to empower and support refugee entrepreneurs. Angels will have the opportunity to provide their mentorship and expertise to entrepreneurs by being part of our workshops and contributing to resources.

This program will involve:

  • Two half days of training sessions by industry experts and Angel investors. Participants will learn about validating a business idea, writing a business plan, building a team and strong advisory network, and how to raise capital from grants, financing or angel investing
  • Support by the Jumpstart Team with business pitch preparation
  • Five entrepreneurs will be selected to pitch their business or idea to a panel of Angel investors

 The workshop will run on Friday, March 1st (9:30 am – 4:00 pm) and Monday, March 4th (9:30-6:00 pm). On Monday, March 4th, from 3:30-6 pm, there will be closing remarks and a reception celebrating the Refugee entrepreneurs!
