How did HIRE start?

HIRE started in fall 2015 as an innovation project of the entrepreneurial scholarship Manage&More at the UnternehmerTUM in Munich. We decided to team up for our shared motivation to give back and impact our society. The goal was to see how we can help in the current refugee crisis in Europe. 

In order find out about the problems more than 40 Newcomers have been interviewed in the early stage of the project. We learned that work is one of the main needs. The goal of HIRE to support the integration of Newcomers into workforce was born.
