Ankommer Pitch 2015
After the start of the Refugee Crisis in 2015, the Social Impact Lab decided they wanted to make a difference! They started a program called Ankommer. Perspektive Deutschland. A program that would find and back Start Ups with a focus on refugees. Several ideas would be pitched, a diverse jury would voted on which ideas they would back, and a few lucky teams would go home celebrating their victory and looking forward to the journey of making their dream a reality!
Two successful Start Ups from the 2015 Pitches being Stitch by Stitch (a fashion label made in Germany and inspired by Syria) and Code Door (a scholarship program teaching and equipping refugees for the tech world).
