Startup Refugees is a life-changing social innovation supporting refugees and newcomers with employment and entrepreneurship in Finland. The network consists of 500 parties, including companies, government officials, NGOs, universities, congregations, research institutes, communities, individuals and events such as Slush who support newcomers with starting businesses and entering the Finnish labour market.
Startup Refugees business teams are bringing the soul to the Slush Oasis! The program of the Oasis is produced by the Startup Refugees business teams, including an Arabic tea and coffee service provided by the café team HEL Café and massages provided by the Iraqi professional athletes of the Helsinki Hammam team. Also, the kaftans that the Oasis staff is wearing are designed and produced by the Startup Refugees Creative teams. During Slush the teams get to test their ideas and services in practise with real customers and receive valuable experience about entrepreneurship in their new home country.
