Entrepreneurship is a powerful driver of economic growth and job creation, especially in our European cities and, within the area of Interreg Programme Central Europe, people with a multicultural background represent an important pool of entrepreneurs, but can face, specific legal, cultural and linguistic obstacles.
The SEE ME IN project aims to support an environment attractive to all forms of multicultural entrepreneurship, developing a general framework for their empowerment. A modular and flexible Intercultural HUB will deliver key tools to enhance the competences of the entrepreneurs with the objective to enable enterprises to work more effectively, expand their markets and improve their role in the EU cities.

The main objective of SEE ME IN is to address key socio-economic challenges within Central European cities with specific reference to inclusion and skills shortages affecting the multicultural enterprises. To meet this key objective, the project will work on strengthening capacities, skills and competences of relevant public authorities and enterprises in three relevant market sectors: design/craft, fashion, food.
Three specific objectives are guiding the project implementation:
