“Your moment of Zen”

As you may know, at the end of each episode of the Daily Show, there’s a moment of zen… @ Madeira Startup Retreat we also have one of those!!

It’s a great opportunity to take a break from the intensive workshops and mentoring! So our entrepreneurs can enjoy a few leisure and relaxing opportunities, throughout the 6-weeks program there are different moments booked for that.

Besides having a “Poncha Experience“, right on the 1st day, we enjoyed a road-trip on Saturday!



A bus-ride that took us to Camara de Lobos, Cabo Girão, Ribeira Brava, Ponta do Sol, Calheta, Jardim do Mar, Paul da Serra, Porto Moniz, São Vicente and, finally, back to Funchal. A mesmerizing way to end the 1st week and get to know better the island and have a “sample” of what these entrepreneurs can do & visit whilst in Madeira Island.

Check the great map that Wanda Maps did for us!

On Wednesday, after 2 full-days with workshops and mentoring hours – all about the Value, Brand & Product Management -, what better than Office Yoga! For that, we welcomed Escola da Felicidade. Ana Luísa guided us through different exercises that we’ll be definitely using from now on!


To end the day, while respecting the “moment of zen”, Pedro Mendes Gomes and Margarida presented us Rota dos Cetáceos – a local Whale & Dolphin watching company -! A refreshing way to finalize this day!


Now, we a ready & fully energized for a new day of work! Let’s do this!
