1 SUPPORTING SMALL BUSINESS CREATION FOR PEOPLE FROM A REFUGEE BACKGROUND

2 About Ignite Small Business Start-ups Ignite Small Business Start-ups is a NSW-based initiative of Settlement Services International (SSI) that facilitates small business creation primarily for people from a refugee background, driven to start their own business or expand an existing one. Many recently arrived refugees face significant barriers to employment, in particular during the early stages of their settlement. Studies show that people from a refugee background display strong entrepreneurial qualities, with a higher than average proportion engaging in small and medium business compared to the general Australian population. However, research indicates that even after three years in Australia, one third of refugee-humanitarian entrants remain unemployed. Ignite Small Business Start-ups taps into the entrepreneurial skills, knowledge and experience of refugees by supporting them to navigate and succeed in the Australian business environment. Ignite Small Business Start-ups uses an evidence-based model developed by the Sirolli Institute and is the first project of its kind to focus on refugees. Sima Mahboobifard Bags of Love and Peace Ignite Small Business Start-ups is a NSW-based initiative of Settlement Services International (SSI) that facilitates small business creation primarily for people from a refugee background, driven to start their own business or expand an existing one.
