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.
Raised in East-Berlin, equipped with an Original DDR (Eastern German) birth certificate, successfully migrated into Western Germany, BRD. Still struggling with Bavarian, though.
Was always warmly welcomed during his stay abroad in South Africa and Canada. He has been socially engaged with Rotaract for many years.
Born into a standard-German speaking family and raised among Bavarians, Niklas first foreign language was Bavarian.
Robert's family benefited of the German integration system in the late 1980s. He wants to help others to get the same chance as he did.
A real child of Munich. Now he lives part-time in England and therefore knows how important and appreciated support from locals is.
Having just arrived in Munich himself, he hopes to help others arriving in Germany with HIRE.
