GREN will equip immigrants to Sweden with tools and knowledge to start their own companies, preferably with a connection with communities in their former home countries.

Officially launched at a workshop at Stora Sociala Företagsdagen in Göteborg on August 31, the project will hold entrepreneurship training for immigrants in the suburb of Angered between October and December.

GREN is financed by Business Region Göteborg and Vinnova.
