The Working Refugees

Problem
In the Netherlands refugees have a hard time. After arrival, integration is difficult because of strict laws. They are not allowed to work under any circumstances.

Insight
Because internet does not have borders, refugees are able to virtually be in another country.

Concept
We discovered a loophole in the Dutch law which made it possible for refugees to start their own company while not having a Dutch working permit. Through the digital government named e-Estonia it is possible to establish your business in Estonia while managing it from anywhere in the world.
