Microbusiness Connection Center

Our purpose is to connect refugee entrepreneurs and business owners with local business resources so they can launch, sustain and grow successful businesses.

If you are a refugee interested in starting or growing a business, the Microbusiness Connection Center may be able to help. Please email Mattie Vandel at Mattie.Vandel@rescue.org to learn more about the services and partnership opportunities. They'll be able to answer any questions you may have about how the Microbusiness Connection Center can support your business goals.

Project Scope

The Microbusiness Connection Center provides people of refugee background who are interested in opening a small business access to existing resources such as business mentors, training and education, technical assistance, networking opportunities, and more. We also help existing resources reach out and adapt to the needs of the refugee-owned business communities.
