SINGA Business Lab

How might we empower refugees and newcomers to transform their ideas into a business using a human-centred approach and become entrepreneurs? What are the necessary skills and the mindset to start a business successfully? How can we connect them to the start-up ecosystem in Berlin and plant the seeds for an entrepreneurial mindset?

Together with the Team from SINGA Deutschland, I designed and delivered a series of workshops  answering these questions. SINGA Business Lab is an inclusive incubator operating in Berlin and Stuttgart, co-created with newcomer entrepreneurs to support them to bring their business ideas into reality.

The outcome was a 6-week program, offering intensive and hands-on training in topics like user research, prototyping and business modelling. We had 12+ participants joining, coming from countries such as Syria, Afganisthan, Egypt, Mexico and France.
