In March, ACH and the OECD held a workshop to discuss immigrant and refugee entrepreneurship support using the Better Entrepreneurship Policy Tool. 12 people representing NGOs (9), HEIs (2) and other (1) completed the self-assessment quiz. The results showed a relatively low score (under 5/10), suggesting participants feel that there are a number of gaps in the current suite of support available to immigrants seeking to start businesses. “Regulations” and “Finance” were ranked the lowest whilst “Strategies” and “Skills” had the highest score.
The questions which received the weakest score (in other words, the biggest perceived bottlenecks) are:
• Business start-up regulations and procedures pose undue difficulties for migrant entrepreneurs.
• The current suite of business development and growth financing offers is not appropriate for various profiles of migrants.
• Entrepreneurship coaching and mentoring offered for migrants is not as effective that it should be.
All the questions related to monitoring and evaluation got a poor score.
Participants identified priorities for actions and next steps. You can read the full summary on the ACH website here: https://ach.org.uk/news-and-features/better-entrepreneurship-policy-tool...

Supporting migrants in entrepreneurship

The OECD webinar Webinar "Women's entrepreneurship policies that work for your territory" was organised as part of the March on gender series of events in March 2022. The webinar gathered policymakers from the OECD and beyond to learn about the Tool and test it by reflecting in their respective policy environments for women's entrepreneurship. 5 participants filled out the questionnaire. 2 were from national Public administration, 1 from a Business support organisation, and 2 for other structures..
The average rating was 6.8/10, suggesting participants feel that a solid base of support is in place for women's entrepreneurs, with room for improvement still. Respondents rated regulations for women entrepreneurs as very supportive (8.5/10) while they felt that there was a need for more support regarding access to skills (5.1/10) and the development of a supportive culture for women entrepreneurship (5.2/10). Contact cynthia.lavison@oecd.org to learn more about how to use the tool, or to share your experience with it, the OECD is keen on hearing how it is used on the ground!

Supporting women in entrepreneurship
Location: International event,

22 participants took part in the event held to review the self-assessment exercise of which 6 were from other regions.
The panel was made of: 2 local public authorities, 3 from RDAs, 3 from universities,6 women entrepreneurs, 2 youth entrepreneurs, 1 entrepreneur coaching young ones, 2 Business angels, 1 bank, 1 accelerator, 1 TTO representative.

The discussion led to identify small and easy to implement measures to support locally would-be entrepreneur and newly created businesses, such as:
-launching an awareness campaign by publishing articles in various media, including social media, to present youth and women successful entrepreneurs. This can be done by the Chamber of Commerce and the RDA.
-organising an annual award event to reward several type of entrepreneurs,
-increasing the possibility to have more physical networking opportunities. This should be organised in a way that young entrepreneurs can meet with experience entrepreneurs.
