We are in the midst of a global humanitarian crisis. 70 million people have been forcibly displaced from their homes due to economic, political and environmental problems. 84% of those displaced are hosted in developing nations where economic opportunities are limited. Many of them, young and talented, migrate towards urban areas seeking employment but are met with extreme racism, social segregation and low-income jobs which undervalues their intelligence and professional experience.

Invicta is on a mission to change that.

We help refugees find remote work opportunities in accordance with their field of expertise, by connecting them to purpose-driven companies globally.
