forward inc logo - refugees pursue entrepreneurship


Forward·Inc is an Amsterdam-based, internationally operating organization. We help newcomers and refugees pursue entrepreneurship. Empowering them to launch, grow, fund, and sustain their own businesses is makes a difference as they create new lives. We believe in the incredible talent of people with a refugee background, their value to society, and their potential to build bridges across communities.

In the past 5 years, we have seen many refugee-owned businesses come to fruition. We have trained over 680 people and more than 70 entrepreneurs have already launched their businesses with our support. Many refugees lack access to elementary and advanced forms of entrepreneurship education and support. Forward·Inc is all about providing access to top-quality entrepreneurship training, coaching, and networking to people from all backgrounds helping refugees pursue entrepreneurship.
