Migrant business hub welcomes first tenants

London’s first business hub dedicated to supporting migrant entrepreneurs has welcomed its first tenants to its new office building in Whitechapel, London.

Situated on Batty Street near Aldgate East Underground Station, mi-HUB is the first co-working space which supports migrant entrepreneurs in starting, growing and managing a business.

The hub provides business support to entrepreneurs and also boasts its own Migrant Business Accelerator programme to give entrepreneurs the best possible start.

Piot Foundation will be the first organisation to operate from mi-HUB. The independent not-for-profit organisation run by Victorine Piot is campaigning globally to improve the livelihoods of skilled migrant workers and their families by providing them with the knowledge they need when relocating to a new country.

The foundation also provides development training and support initiatives to individuals and families to help them integrate successfully into new communities and realise their full potential and life goals.

Founder of mi-HUB Rafael dos Santos said: “We are so excited to welcome Piot Foundation to the ‘Home of Migrant Entrepreneurs’ and as the first members of the mi-HUB family.

“Piot Foundation is providing an incredible and much needed service, and we are proud to be part of their growth and look forward to supporting Victorine and the team on their journey.

“My vision is to help one million migrant entrepreneurs in the next 10 years. We are looking forward to welcoming many more businesses to mi-HUB and growing our global family.”

The fully furnished co-working space is now open to businesses and entrepreneurs and can be found at 6 Batty Street, Whitechapel, London E1 1RH.
