Startup Weekend is a global event powered by Google for Entrepreneurs which allows participants from diverse areas to experience the highs and lows, as well as the pressure and fun of creating a start-up, with support from mentors and a community dedicated to strengthening the entrepreneurial ecosystem.
In Mozambique, Startup Weekend is promoted by ideiaLab and UX.
Women’s Entrepreneurship Day (WED) is the largest global entrepreneurship initiative. It is supported by the United Nations and biannually appoints national ambassadors to coordinate activities in more than 144 countries in order to celebrate, support, and empower women entrepreneurs worldwide. In Mozambique, ideiaLab organizes a WED celebration every year on the 19th of November. Our Executive Catalyst, Tatiana Pereira, is the WED Mozambique Ambassador and WED Regional Ambassador for Lusophone Africa.
