Madeira Library!

Madeira Library

For the 1st time, in the Madeira Startup Retreat, we made a Madeira Library and it was a fun and prolific networking time.

We invited 10 entrepreneurs, in the Madeiran business panorama, to share, individually, with each participating team, general information about Madeira and Porto Santo.

On the 28th of October, we wanted to focus on different themes so we chose the themes and gave each entrepreneur a theme where they should emphasize.

The Idea was that each team netted to know more details about the island, through people that dominate the theme in the Region, increase the network of contacts in the region and leverage possible synergies and partnerships in Madeira, eg. information, data, contacts, ideas, recommendations, you name it.

A big THANK YOU to all the entrepreneurs that accepted this challenge.
