Q: What is the difference between Migration Hub Network and Migration Hub Berlin or Migration Hub Heidelberg?
Migration Hub Network represents the overarching structure.
a. It offers the Migrapreneur Training and Mentorship programme as well as support to social projects that are members of our network.
b. Through matchmaking MHN boosts the collaboration between social projects in the field of migration around the world and promotes a unique ecosystem and community.
c. It provides consulting services to companies, non-governmental and governmental institutions.
Migration Hub Berlin and Heidelberg provide the space in which social projects can base themselves out of and it offers them the opportunity to host events and meetings.
Q: Is Migration Hub a co-working space?
No. Our activities extend much further than offering a co-working space to social entrepreneurs. We aim to support social entrepreneurs by offering mentorship, networking events and the space to work when they need it. We ask for monthly contributions but not a fixed amount like a co-working space would do.
Q: How do we gain revenue?
Our main revenue is from grants we receive to run our Migrapreneur Programme and from the external events we hold. Secondary to this, our members give contributions to help support the hubs with all the daily costs involved, from cleaning to printing paper!
Q: Under which conditions do we not accept funding?
In the past, we have declined funding that we believe was linked to sources that go against the values and mission of the Migration Hub Network.
Q: How to make a donation to Migration Hub and what do you with it?
Migration Hub Network survives thanks to individual support. But every month, MHN needs to raise circa 5.000 Euros to offer spaces and materials needed for workshops and events. Our physical spaces are rented with the aim of offering it for free to migrants and with significant discounts to social projects. Organising external events and providing consultation for projects helps to cover some of our expenses. However, we always need more donations.
There are two ways to donate.

Thanks for your support. Thanks for your donation!
Q: Why was MHN founded?
It was 2016…. We were in Europe, Germany… do some googling!
Q: What has MHN achieved?
Migration Hub Berlin was named one of the 100 Landmarks of Germany by the German Program Land of Ideas for its inclusive approach and being a place of reference.
Our exchange programs with social entrepreneurs and fostering migrant integration meant that we won the Shimon Peres Prize, awarded by the German Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
We have impacted over 2,300 social entrepreneurs and 100 migrant entrepreneurs.
Q: Why do we always speak English if you're based in Germany?
We actually speak more than TEN languages on a regular basis. We have chosen English as a common language to connect and work with all our members from all over the world. But in fact, the MHN team speaks German, English, Spanish, Italian, French, Portuguese and Arabic. And of course, we make sure that some programs and events are run in the respective languages of the migrants attending them.
In the near future, we hope to translate this website and our materials to all the languages for everyone to feel included!
