Seedstars 2020 Migration Challenge For Socially Driven Startups Offering Innovative Solutions

2020 Migration Challenge

The 2020 Migration Challenge global call for application is ongoing. This is for socially driven start-ups that offer innovative solutions that bridge the information gaps in the global migration system.

The program is an initiative of Seedstars in partnership with the International Organisation of Employers (IOE) and the Business Advisory Group of Migration. It is looking at rewarding innovative early-stage Human Resources, FinTech, CivicTech, and EdTech start-ups with solution-oriented products to improve migration systems that respond to labour market needs.

The solutions should assist with better matching of the employment sectors facing skills shortages with trained regular migrant workers – ex-pats, temporary workers, seasonal workers, intra-company transferees. The solutions should also provide ways for governments to share information and best practices to improve their policies. Finally, they should provide migrant workers with access to financial, educational, and labour mobility services.
