If you are reading this you probably have an idea, a business or hustle with a vision, or you are on a mission to change the world. Never lose that spark! The world needs you now more than ever.
Navigating any business can be challenging at times. We know there are all kinds challenges for emerging or first time migrant/refugee founders and creators to build a business, a side hustle or startup that aligned with their purpose.
As a migrant/refugee these factors are multiplied with the cultural challenges like language, visa constraints, lack of local experience or business experience, and unemployment/underemployment make it even harder. Diving deeper, we find its:
9 in 10 startups fail in the first 10 years. While 20% of businesses fail in their 1st year, 30% of business fail in their 2nd year, and 50% of businesses fail after five years in business.
