The Business Lab by SINGA is Berlin’s most inclusive incubator, with the mission to support newcomer — migrant and refugee — entrepreneurs turn their business ideas into reality and bring the best of business design and innovation to newcomers.

SINGA means „connection“ and that is the core of what we do! By creating programs that enable a mutual exchange of ideas, experiences and knowledge amongst equals we aim to redefine the current language and practice of integration. We strive for an inclusive society that embraces diversity and for an innovative economy that allows everyone, regardless of their background, to realize their professional and social potential.

That’s why at the Business Lab we…

  • collaborate with Berlin’s dynamic startup scene and a network of great freelancers with diverse backgrounds to create meaningful experiences for everyone involved
  • match newcomer entrepreneurs with mentors from the local startups
  • merge online and offline formats to create an exciting new offer for a post-pandemic world
  • exchange best practices with Business Labs from around Europe and beyond
  • organize the yearly Berlin Newcomer Startup Award, one of the biggest of its kind in Europe

  • leading the operational implementation of the Business Lab program in Berlin (e.g organizing workshops, pitch events, award shows)
  • supporting in outreach and acquisition of Business Lab participants
  • communicating with the entrepreneurs before, during and after their participation in the program (acquisition / advice / evaluation)
  • supporting the Program Director in in strategic development and co-creation of the program – or new projects
  • supporting the monitoring and evaluation of our impact
  • contributing your expertise, passion and creativity to unlock potential that we haven’t even thought of yet

  • are enthusiastic to experiment with new formats and tools of workshop facilitation – from design thinking to mindfulness interventions
  • have an optimistic attitude and are willing to learn new skills or try new ideas
