Herizon is an NGO with a startup-twist


Herizon has been sponsored roughly €200K so far making the cost of employment of one formerly unemployed, highly educated immigrant through us only €1000 per individual.

ROI for society and the individual? Priceless.


At startups, you don't make great decisions based on gut feeling but on data. We know every individual going through our process and therefore our impact is completely measured.


We believe transparency will create a positive pressure to aim better. There's always room for improvement and a bigger impact.
