Incubators for Immigrants is a non-profit foundation dedicated to helping solve the refugee problem by assisting people to establish their own businesses. Dennis Vermeulen, CEO of INCO Business Group, came up with the idea to support newcomers in building independent lives in the Netherlands.
“Incubators for Immigrants provides refugees with access to legal, financial and immigration advice” says Dennis Vermeulen. His company, INCO Business Group, provides similar services to entrepreneurs wishing to set up companies in the Netherlands.
“We started Incubators for Immigrants to help refugees make a societal, cultural and economic contribution to Dutch society,” says Vermeulen, who founded INCO Business Group nine years ago.
With Incubators for Immigrants, refugees are encouraged to submit a business plan outlining their idea and how they would make it work. Dennis Vermeulen and his team then evaluate the plan and help each refugee create the business. This includes advice as well as legal assistance.
Dennis Vermeulen finds the current refugee situation in Europe troubling. The INCO Business Group CEO wanted to move from talking about the problem to taking action. Working with other business owners and entrepreneurs, he founded Incubators for Immigrants. More help is needed.
