Fund for Action and Innovation by Refugee Entrepreneurs
At FAIRE we firmly believe that the energy and capacity for innovation of refugee and migrant entrepreneurs is a golden opportunity for our country.
Let’s work together!
- is to support and empower refugees to become successful entrepreneurs in France.
- and to promote a new vision and approach of refugees’ role, inclusion and contribution to French society through entrepreneurship.
We seek to embody and demonstrate Impact, Inclusion, Innovation and Integrity in each and every one of our actions.
“Refugees have the right not just to survive, but to thrive. As an entrepreneur and political refugee, I know from personal experience that these are qualities shared by entrepreneurs. With FAIRE I will support the development and success of refugee entrepreneurs, helping them become significant drivers of France’s economy within the next 20 years.”
Nick Nopporn Suppipat, Entrepreneur and Founder of FAIRE
Faire achieves our mission:
We are proud to support the 2nd edition of the MEnt program in Paris. It is a pleasure to get to know the talented participants that – in spite of what they faced in order to get to France – are motivated and engaged in their entrepreneurial project.
The PLACE project was clearly in line with FAIRE’s values, and the fund is delighted to be a part of this innovative experiment that allows migrants and refugees to be the instigators of their own entrepreneurial future.
FAIRE is pleased to support this start-up charity, launched by an alumni of the MEnt program. We look forward to watching the evolution of this ambitious project.
Faire is pleased to support Simplon’s innovative training program that provides refugees access to promising career, and in turn economic independence.
The expansion of SINGA’s incubator program – FINKELA – to the city of Lyon is supported by FAIRE. We look forward to seeing first-hand the evolution of the entrepreneurial ecosystem in Lyon and getting to know the participants of the first and second sessions.
Since January, makesense and Elan Interculturel have been supporting 12 impact projects thanks to the COMBO program
In 2017, with the support of the European Commission, makesense launched the Migrant Entrepreneur project to train and equip entrepreneurs – from migrant backgrounds – in business creation and management methodologies. At the same time, through the Migrapreneurs project, Elan Interculturel aimed to support migrant entrepreneurs in the creation of their professional project by developing their soft skills.
The complementarity of these two projects naturally led to the creation of the COMBO program.Read more
The Observatory of Refugee Camps, an impactful initiative that sheds light on encamped refugees
We had the chance to meet the O-CR team during a Prototyping Lab hosted by our partner PLACE Network, which they attended in order to test and improve their project. Their idea immediately struck us as both brilliant and necessary: establishing an Observatory of Refugee Camps to better understand, act on, and sound the alarm as to the living conditions in refugee camps.Read more
