Starting afresh: How entrepreneurship empowers refugees

Entrepreneurship empowers refugees. It gives them the opportunity to take control over their lives and start afresh.

CFE’s recent report detailed the appetite and propensity for entrepreneurship among refugees. The Centre is now working with government, business and philanthropists to help roll out refugee entrepreneurship programmes across the UK.

On World Refugee Day this week, CFE hosted a Parliamentary event to celebrate the entrepreneurial contributions of refugees throughout the centuries.

CFE used the event to launch the below video that brings the topic to life. Watch Faith and Razan share their experience of resettling in the UK and their path towards entrepreneurship.
