Frank Walter Steinmeier

President, Germany

"Wir [dürfen] uns Migration nicht einfach wegwünschen, sondern sollten – ganz jenseits von Asyl – auch legale Zugänge nach Deutschland definieren, die Migration nach unseren Maßgaben kontrollieren und steuern."

IZA Fellow & Harvard University PhD

"Safety and opportunity depend mostly on what country you live in. For those of us born in prosperous countries, this seems quite fine. Migrants are people who aspire to shape the course of their lives."

Our approach

THE CHALLENGE: Moving to Europe safely and legally is a struggle

Why? It's still very difficult to legally migrate to Germany - especially for young, aspiring people with a lifetime of potential ahead of them. The key reason: They need a job offer before they arrive.

Getting a job offer is the result of an often long and winding process. It requires nuanced understanding of a country's work culture and is already hard to navigate for natives. It is thus often prohibitively difficult to master even for young, smart, positive and ambitious people. 


THE IDEA - A digital 'bootcamp' for the German job market

We are offering a digital service that increases people's chance of finding a job in Germany. Successful applicants have MINT degrees, a minimum of 2 years of work experience and actively seek a future in Europe. We provide personal, in-depth coaching via video chat and help candidates assess their readiness for a job in Germany. Our top students graduate as Imagine Fellows.


THE Opportunity - A new, digital NGO. From Berlin. For the world.

Europe faces many geostrategic, economic and ethical challenges. Shaping future immigration flows to Europe is one of them. We at Imagine Foundation work with our hearts, minds and digital technology on providing new solutions.

We build a new kind of digital NGO. From Berlin. For the world. Are you in?
 

 
 
Before I met you, I sent more than 200 applications & got rejected so many times. Thanks for your support, Team Imagine! Is Muenster a good place to raise a family?
— Ahmed, Cairo. Soon in Germany.
