Immigrants arriving in Sweden are often highlighted as aspiring entrepreneurs, acknowledged to possess experience acquired in their home countries and equipped with plenty of know-how and ambition. The unique position of occupying two geographical locations provides and supports information flows that entrepreneurs born and bred in Sweden cannot compete with.
At Inclusive Business Sweden, we recognise this and have explored the notion of combining integration with inclusive business models through the project Entrepreneurship without borders (Gränsöverskridande entreprenörskap, GREN). We are also implementing this notion through future projects and initiatives. We believe that there are positive advantages of immigration on national finances, given that immigrants are introduced to the job market soon after arrival, and wish to be a part of this.
