What is #tempo?

Launched by GROUPE SOS Pulse in partnership with La Ruche, #tempo is a program aiming at making entrepreneurship accessible to refugees in France.

Through the animation of ecosystems and the deployment of specialized support programs in several territories, #tempo aims to give rhythm to the development of entrepreneurial ideas and projects led by refugees and to provide them with the keys and links necessary for their realization.

Thanks to the support of the incubators LE COMPTOIR - PULSE in Montreuil (93) and La Ruche Saint-Nazaire (44), #tempo launches from March 15 to May 30 its call for applications to recruit its first class of entrepreneurs!

The objective of this program is to allow 40 aspiring refugee entrepreneurs to consolidate their idea, and 25 of them to be supported towards the launch of their business.

#tempo is deployed in the framework of the Enter to Transform project, financed by Interreg NWE.
