PLACE is a Paris-based start-up that unlocks the hidden opportunities of newcomer talent in Europe and matches it with economic actors in the areas of entrepreneurship, employment and higher education.
It is born of the collaboration between PLACEmakers: actors from different sectors and countries who need newcomer talent to thrive.
Its core value is
migrant-led innovation: newcomers developing themselves the value that host societies need.

3 things we do really well
with newcomer talent

U

we identify talent

We source newcomer talent in response to the needs of PLACEmakers.
These needs can be jobs (part-time or full-time), students for higher education, entrepreneurs for incubators, artists for residencies… the sky’s the limit, as is the potential of newcomer talent!
Our multilingual, multicultural team have a unique capacity to penetrate local informal networks to find the hidden gems wherever they are.

g

we boost talent

Our unique Catalyst Academy prepares newcomer talent with Future of Work skills, along 4 tracks: Leadership, Collaboration, Entrepreneurship and Innovation. 

All Catalysts in the Academy have an economic opportunity (job, studies or incubation)  and take part in our immersive out-of-the-box training which prepares them for the Future of Work. We’re led by a strong design culture which has its roots in the innovation studio that founded PLACE and develops its curriculum.

we match talent

Organizations have unique needs when it comes to talent.
The Catalyst Academy enables us to work closely with specific PLACEmakers to shape the talent they need for their organizations to thrive.
PLACEmakers invest in talent through PLACE, and we work with PLACEmakers to make them future-ready. Through intercultural trainings, mentoring and more, they become first of the class in leveraging newcomer talent for their own performance.

PLACEmakers:

Doers across sectors who are turning Europe into a place
where migrant-led innovation happens naturally

Hala Akari, an Emerging Leader since 2021 and a current member of our accelerator, cites Nietzche to illustrate one of the powers of a true leader: resting as a form of resistance. Rest helps us keep our fight alive so we can keep standing up for our beliefs. A timely reminder for the summer, don’t you think?

August is a time when many of us slow down, recharge and connect back to what inspires us.

We thought we’d help you do that by learning a bit more about some members of the PLACE community!
Today, we introduce Ahlam @wryaeyes, a female multidisciplinary artist from Yemen. From graffiti to Arabic calligraphy, her work calls on us to open our eyes to the world and seek freedom always!

Ahlam took part in PLACE’s media and arts program My Image, My Story in 2019.
