Alumni Entrepreneurs




This page is home to our alumni’s, the pioneers who faced the challenges of entrepreneurship together. As time evolves we will show how our community of talented individuals has forged their own path in their own business, futher education or even a paying job, all of which are part of economic and social empowerment. Every four months we come together with the current entrepreneurs to celebrate successes, guide each other with new insights or provide opportunities for each other. The goal is to build a supporting group of entrepreneurs, students and coaches to make the best out of the work we do together. Feel free to welcome someone to our alumni network, or join one of our events! Next event is October 4th 2018. For more information, please mail info@refugeesforward.org.

Anas Ragheb

“The workshops offer a variety of topics that are much needed for us to understand the Dutch work culture, get an overview on financial matters as well as how to write a proper business plan. I truly consider the incubation program of RF to be a comprehensive and complete program that takes an entrepreneur to a whole new level in terms of personal development and adds a huge deal of knowledge to the professional side.”

Mohammad Alassar

“The program was successful by being the perfect cross point for refugees to be integrated. With young people in charge, they are a good example to the entrepreneurs in the sense that they are flexible and have a good ability to communicate with us. They offer exactly the right workshops that we need as entrepreneurs.”

Manar Aburshaid

“I had a very pleasant and productive experience with RF. Most of the workshops were an eye opener. The RF team has spared no effort in supporting our projects whether on a technical, emotional or physical level. I can strongly say that RF has been the back bone and the main ignitor to all the entrepreneurs and their projects. My deepest gratitude goes to the team for their wonderful support.”
