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!

Our Mission:

  • 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.

Our Values:

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.
