“Vision Lab: Scaling Chances
Supporting migrant tech entrepreneurs at earliest stage
Every year people are forced to leave their home countries. They leave everything behind and come to Europe in the hope of building a better, more secure life. Many bring a lot of talent, drive, experience and know-how, but also courage and resilience.
Silicon Valley proves that migration is a great economic opportunity. Almost half of all start-ups there were founded by immigrants or their children. In Germany, more than one in five company founders have a migration background.
Unfortunately, missing networks or bureaucratic obstacles too often prevent great ideas from growing into businesses. We at Earlybird think that courage, entrepreneurial spirit and good ideas shall be nurtured. “Tomorrow belongs to the daring” is one of our core beliefs so that we decided to actively support young, talented founders on their way from the very beginning.
That is why we have created ‘Vision Lab: Scaling Chances’. The six months program offers three modules, ranging from dedicated workshops and networking events, over a mentoring program to financing opportunities. We support the teams with the most promising ideas throughout the program with advice and sparring to turn their business ideas into reality. Starting with the idea, to the acceleration phase and concluding in the first product release. Our strong partner network helps the founders to pick the most experienced minds for each of their challenges.
With our Vision Lab, we aim at providing participants with the entrepreneurial skills needed to create new opportunities for themselves and our society. If you would like to support the Vision Lab or contribute as a mentor, please get in touch with us!”
