Futurae, Programma Imprese Migranti

Futurae, Programma Imprese Migranti, was born from the collaboration between the Ministry of Labor and Social Policies and UNIONCAMERE in order "to support the development and consolidation of migrant entrepreneurship, in order to promote inclusive growth also in terms of opportunities for the creation of new jobs for foreign or Italian citizens ".

The project activities are organized in two main lines, which respond to a dual objective of knowledge and promotion of migrant entrepreneurship.

The first line envisages the creation of an Observatory that carries out research on the socio-economic and financial inclusion of enterprises managed by migrants, also as factors of territorial development and international dynamism. The Observatory will publish a report with the results of its activities and of the activities of the second line of the project. This will be accompanied by the creation of an "online system on immigrant entrepreneurship to support institutional decision-makers" with dashboard functions and by the implementation of the "entrepreneur's digital drawer" with documentation of specific interest for the immigrant entrepreneur.

The second line aims to encourage and accompany the birth of migrant enterprises in the territories and is carried out by the Chambers of Commerce. It includes actions of: information; orientation; training; personalized assistance; assistance in setting up a new business also through accompaniment and access to credit; mentoring in the start-up phase; promotion and communication. These actions are addressed to people with a migrant background motivated for an entrepreneurial and self-employment path. At least 2000 of these will participate in information events, at least 1200 in orientation, at least 800 in training and at least 400 will be accompanied in the development of the business plan, until the creation of at least 60 new companies with migrant or mixed ownership. So far, Chambers of Commerce active in 18 provinces have joined: Biella-Vercelli, Turin, Como-Lecco, Milan Monza and Brianza, Pavia, Padua, Venice-Rovigo, Verona, Modena, Reggio Emilia, Rome, Caserta, Bari and Cosenza.

The financial resources committed for the realization of the project amount to a total of € 3,220,820.00 (including VAT), from the National Fund for Migration Policies for 2018.
