On 31.08.17 the Landkreis Kassel invited representatives of regional enterprises for an after-work event, where the REST idea was presented and discussed. The CEO of on regional enterprise gave an interesting insight on how he succeeded in overcoming initital challenges such as language problems, legal issues and fear. He underlined that one needs some additional time and patience at the beginning of the process but that it can be very rewarding to give a refugee the chance to work in an enterprise.

EYE stands for “Erasmus for Young Entrepreneurs”, a European funded exchange programme for entrepreneurs.
In order to support entrepreneurial diversity and synergy in Europe the European Commission funds exchanges between entrepreneurs.
New entrepreneurs (NE) have the opportunity to work over a period of 1 month up to 6 months with an experienced host entrepreneur (HE) in another European country. Both parts benefit of the exchange discussing their business ideas, sharing best practice examples and contacts. In a nutshell: They get a fantastic chance to learn from each other.
If you are interested in the free of charge REST support, coaching and training that will be offered in spring 2018 register to our REST community to receive further information.
