Local Piloting in Greece – Teaching Migrant Social Entrepreneurship in Think Social Hub

On November 29th and December 1st 2022, Think Social Greek partner, IDEC, conducted a series of workshops for migrants in a space offered by Think Social Hub.

Teaching migrant social entrepreneurship in Greece holds significant importance due to the limited opportunities migrants face when trying to enter the job market. This endeavor represents a crucial step in addressing the challenges that migrants encounter while seeking employment and economic stability in their new homeland. Greece, like many other European countries, has witnessed an influx of migrants in recent years, and their integration into the labor force is a pressing concern.

Migrant social entrepreneurship programs aim to empower individuals from diverse backgrounds by providing them with the skills, knowledge, and resources needed to create and sustain their businesses. These initiatives not only foster economic self-sufficiency but also contribute to the overall social and economic development of the host country. By nurturing entrepreneurship among migrants, Greece can harness the untapped potential of a diverse workforce, driving innovation and economic growth.

Moreover, social entrepreneurship offers a unique pathway for migrants to overcome systemic barriers and discrimination they may encounter in the traditional job market. It allows them to leverage their skills, experiences, and cultural backgrounds to create businesses that resonate with their communities and address specific societal needs. In doing so, migrant social entrepreneurs become agents of change, driving positive social impact while also generating income for themselves and their families.

In conclusion, teaching migrant social entrepreneurship in Greece is a pivotal strategy to empower migrants and address the challenges they face in accessing the job market. By equipping them with the tools and knowledge to become successful entrepreneurs, Greece can foster economic resilience and inclusivity while celebrating the diverse talents and contributions of its migrant population.
