This description of Nathanaël Molle's work was prepared when Nathanaël Molle was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 2014.
In the last few decades, France, like many other developed countries, has faced an increasing number of refugees fleeing war or political persecution in their countries. Exploring the untapped potential of refugee populations long stigmatized and marginalized by their host countries, Nathanaël Molle is helping refugees launch ventures and to become powerful ambassadors for the contributions that refugees can make to society. Investing in entrepreneurial personalities, he builds a network of ambassadors that highlights the economic value of refugees and acts as a stepping stone for large and collective social integration.
