MY-SITE is a project funded by Erasmus+, that aims to train youth residing in Greece, regardless of their background, and help them acquire the tools and skills needed to develop their business idea and become successful entrepreneurs. The objective is to promote entrepreneurship towards social inclusion and integration for both Greeks and third-country nationals, who are often excluded from the labour market thus inhibiting social interaction and exchange.

On April 2019, Aya Burweila, COR Founder’s research report on  “MIGRANT & YOUTH SOCIAL INCLUSION THROUGH ENTREPRENEURSHIP” (MYSITE) was published by Solidarity Now.

The report examines the conditions of entrepreneurship in Greece for young people and migrants and entails interviews with experts as well as young Greek and young migrant entrepreneurs. The report also includes information on the Greek national context, the legal, political and institutional framework, opportunities and measures for entrepreneurship, challenges and barriers for entrepreneurs, and recommendations for creating a better more environmentally friendly entrepreneurship environment for migrants and young people in Greece.

The report also provides the landscape and policies for youth and migrant entrepreneurship, as well as the resources made available to young entrepreneurs in Greece.  

*MYSITE was implemented with funding by the ERASMUS+ program of the European Commission in 5 EU countries (Spain, Italy, Malta, Cyprus, and Greece) by the following partners: SolidarityNow (Greece), Asociación Socio Educativa Llere (Spain), S.F.Or. Centro Studi Formazione Orientamento (Italy), Aequitas (Cyprus) and The People for Change Foundation (Malta), as the project leader.
