• Overview

    Refugees have mostly been singled out in terms of help leaving them at bottom of the labour market. We believe that refugees are fundamentally entrepreneurs because of the struggle and the challenges that they have faced in their lives. Not only do they have amazing characteristics of risk-taking, resilience, flexibility, creativity but also the ability to start from zero – All highly prized entrepreneurial qualities.

    About us

    Founded in 2017, R Ventures Foundation is an organisation focused on promoting integration of refugees in the host country by way of education & entrepreneurship. The idea was conceived at TedxZaventem, where Mr. Shantanu Prakash, member of Global Futures Council on Migration at World Economic Forum (WEF) gave a talk about refugee entrepreneurship.

    Our Partners

    We have closely been working with several think tanks, policy makers , corporations, educational institutions and foundations including MediaTenor, Netherlands Business Academy (NLBA), Peace Research Institute of Oslo (PRIO), Nobel Peace Prize Committee, Invictus Capital, Mentally Fit Institute (MFI) and Gratias Partners to formulate a solid approach to promote entrepreneurship among refugees.
