Bergen Springboard: Job Creation for and by Immigrants & Internationals.

Are you an immigrant, international, or repat in Bergen with an interest in starting your own business? Join us from the 24th to 27th of August to acquire the knowledge, resources and tools to start your own business or organization.

Immigrants and internationals need professional and employment opportunities to become proactive solution finders to business and societal challenges. The Springboard workshops aim to provide the tools, resources, network, and mindset shift needed for sustainable professional development.

These workshops take place over the course of 4 days. A diverse pool of facilitators will provide guidance on a variety of topics, including making a business plan, business strategy & growth, design thinking, digitalization, accounting and legal, etc.

***Workshops are scheduled Tuesday – Friday from 9:00 – 16:00, with a half-hour lunch break each day and 10 minutes breaks after each hour.

***If you would like to learn more about this project, or register to join the workshops, or collaborate, please visit the Springboard project page at https://diversify.no/springboard/. We will kick-off the 4-day workshop with a Panel discussion on the 23rd of August with city/community stakeholders to address the challenges, share experiences and resources to secure employment/create your own business. Register for the Panel HERE.

Both events are FREE for all participants. Springboard workshops will take place in-person. We will strictly adhere to the rules and regulations by the Norwegian Authorities with regards to the COVID-19. Consequently, places are limited and available on a “first come first serve basis”.
