Piot Foundation will be the first organisation to operate from the mi-HUB co-working space located in Whitechapel, London. The new business hub is dedicated to helping migrant entrepreneurs and is the first of its kind in the capital.
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.
Piot Foundation also provides a support service using experienced counsellors and well-trained volunteers to give guidance to members who are in distress or at a time of uncertainty in their lives. They assist in issues ranging from those facing a life crisis, dealing with a painful past and adjusting to changed circumstances to seeking out new directions.
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.”
Situated in 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.
