Startup Refugees presents Baghdad Barbers (BGD Barbers)

Startup Refugees brings BGD Barbers, founded by the refugees, to offer their hairdressing talents as well as an extraordinary experience for both men and women in the festival audience of Funky Elephant. All the members of this cooperative have a long history of hairdressing before arriving in Finland and they share the same passion towards their profession. During the past year they have participated in several different events from the Night of the Homeless to Slush, but also opened their own business space at Fredrikinkatu 58.

Consisting of more than 500 hundred companies, private persons and organizations, Startup Refugees develops employment and entrepreneurship of refugees nationwide. The network has offered 4380 targeted working, training and networking possibilities to refugees according to their interests and supported more than 30 refugee startup teams.

Meet us at Unity Haven to get a new haircut and show us support!
