Spain: Entrepreneurship for groups in a situation of, or at risk of, exclusion from the labor market

Helping people re-integrate into society by means of entrepreneurship

  • Status

    Ongoing

  • Location Barcelona, Spain

In certain communities of Barcelona, the symptoms of deprivation and poverty are plenty. Perhaps the most obvious are the physical signs of poor housing and unattractive living environment. People living in such areas often find themselves excluded from the mainstream society and are recipients of poor quality services.

Alstom Foundation and its partner NGO Action Against Hunger believe that absence of dignified and stable employment is the biggest contributing factor to this exclusion. Therefore, this project aims to lay emphasis on entrepreneurship (and labor market inclusion in general) as a means to reintegrate into the society. Trainings will be conducted on how to set up your own businesses and expert advice would be dispensed on how to develop and grow your business from an abstract idea on paper. To make their ideas come alive, participants would have access to seed funding and mentors till they are ready to take the reins into their own hands.
