Why did you join Refugees Forward?

I want to have all the information about doing business in the Netherlands. This program is a good opportunity to share my business idea with others and use their feedback to improve it. I think it’s a good chance to make my business a success.

Could you tell us a bit about your background and what project you are going to be working on?

Back in Syria my family had its own business, and I started learning with my father since I was young. I’m interested in all types of businesses, and now I am interested in growing my network. I already do catering, but I want to start doing home delivery as well. All this in a sustainable way, using organic products in my dishes and natural materials to serve meal (no plastic!).

Where do you see yourself in 2 years?

In two years I’ll have a big catering company, with a well-recognised and respected name.
