The Centre for Entrepreneurs and FAIRE have launched the first-ever global refugee entrepreneurship programme survey.
This research project will help understand the state of refugee entrepreneurship programmes globally, by examining the structure, funding, programme content, challenges and impact of refugee entrepreneurship programmes currently operating.
The programme manager survey assesses the programme and organisational needs of refugee incubators and examines the following categories:
- the structure of entrepreneurship programmes;
- the type of services offered by individual programmes;
- the type of funding that is available;
- the challenges and opportunities faced when running a refugee entrepreneurship programme;
- the impact of refugee entrepreneurship programmes.
The refugee entrepreneur survey assesses the participant’s motivation and entrepreneurial activities and examines the following categories:
- the motivation to participate in a refugee entrepreneurship programme;
- the type of support received;
- business outcomes;
- challenges post-graduation.

The survey is a result of initial exchanges held between FAIRE and Centre for Entrepreneurs and the global refugee entrepreneurship summit that the Centre held in November 2018.
At the summit, participants called for a common data-sharing tool. The global refugee entrepreneurship survey is the Centre and FAIRE’s recognition for such a need.
In March 2018, the Centre for Entrepreneurs published “Starting Afresh: How entrepreneurship is transforming the lives of resettled refugees”. The report makes a compelling case about why refugees make great entrepreneurs, how they can contribute to the UK as business-creators, and how guiding them towards entrepreneurship can reduce public spending and strengthen social integration.
