About Kiron

Kiron's education program is just one part of their services. Their network of innovative educational, entrepreneurial, and research initiatives is aimed at targeting the broader issues of migration and developing pedagogy in the digital age. 

Kiron Ventures supports two types of startups: those launched by refugees to realize a business idea, and those that provide innovative solutions to the global refugee crisis. It provides business mentoring as well as access to a network of social investors, entrepreneurs, professionals and government members. They also offer technological support and co-working spaces, delivered in partnership with other top startup incubator programs across Europe.

Kiron's educational vision is not just about providing online courses, and not limited to its current application to the refugee crisis. Rather, their vision is of a new learning environment that is more accessible, more human-centred, and more supportive of personal growth.
