Abstract [en]

This study critically examines multiple levels of support from the current German start-up consulting landscape for refugees. Based on qualitative content analysis of 31 proposals submitted during a funding contest for refugee start-up consulting projects, the contribution reveals existing and envisaged structures for supporting refugees in founding their own company. Compared to recent literature for start-up advice for refugees and taking into consideration classical evaluation criteria of business plan contests and business incubators, common patterns are traced. The qualitative research approach also sheds light on existing support structures for migrant entrepreneurs. Here well-known resources, opportunities and hurdles of self-employed migrants have already been identified and these can be adapted in the future to the specific need of potential entrepreneurs who had to flee from their home country. Consequently, policy recommendations are highlighted.
