Talent & start-up incubator for persons with refugee and migrant background
“We firmly believe in the democratisation of entrepreneurial education and the creation of economic opportunities for all. Therefore, we envision a society that is open to new entrepreneurial ideas, in which everyone can contribute their skills and potential, and which values diversity as a strength, regardless of gender, nationality, religion, race or socio-economic background.“
Capacity is a non-profit association based in Zurich, Switzerland. It was founded in 2015 by a group of locals and migrants who recognised the need for creative solutions to long-term refugee and migrant unemployment. Capacity is a talent and start-up incubator for persons with refugee and migrant background who would like to launch a business or a socio-cultural initiative in Switzerland.
We offer specialized and bilingual Programmes, which bring together locals and persons with refugee and migrant backgrounds in a space of collaborative skill-sharing.
Capacity was the first incubator of its kind in Zurich and launched its first Mentoring and Entrepreneurship Programme in 2016. Our mentoring approach maximises the benefits of integrating refugees and migrants into the local economy to achieve economic self-sufficiency and helps to sensitize the Swiss receiving communities, leading to new and inclusive relationships.
We work across sectors and industries because we strive for real integration. We bring together partners to encourage multi-stakeholder and cross-sectoral cooperation between public authorities, academia, entrepreneurship, civil society and the private and business sectors.
