Starting your own Business


Starting your own business can be a daunting prospect for anyone. Time and financial restraints are often cited as the main causes for the failings of start up businesses. Building from the knowledge gained from the Elie project, ethnic minority groups that Eliemental will work with often lack soft skills such as communication, organisation and education, as well as access to social and communal networks within the country they reside.

These invisible barriers often prevent individuals from being entrepreneurial. By working with local communities and building from local knowledge, the Eliemental project aims to promote the creation of start up businesses through providing supportive spaces for target groups to learn soft skills and share knowledge, important in allowing entrepreneurial ideas to develop.
