Using entrepreneurship as a means of including (financially and socially) traditionally marginalized communities in business models when creating new startup. The workshop draws from Lina's experience in building dafero, a consumer packaged goods startup employing refugee women to make dates-based delicacies such as date spread. The session will cover how to create a high-growth startup and a product consumers love, while including practices such as refugee employment and social assistance in your business model.
