The Entrepreneurship Club is a project developed by MOVE that started in 2016. Together with university students from Timor, the goal is to promote a practical and real vision of implement new business and ideas.

Timor is the most recent and poorest country in Asia highly dependent from oil. We believe that introducing  "Entrepreneurship" and "Innovation" concepts is fundamental today to develop a new alternative sector. Thus, we see in the Entrepreneurship Club the best way to empower these young students.

Our ambition is to transform the Club into a truly university incubator and, at a same time, a tool to prepare them for the business world by putting these young students close to real experiences of local entrepreneurs. 

Together with the National University of Timor Lorosa'e we want to make the Entrepreneurship Club an important reference in Timor, by preparing young entrepreneurs launching new businesses.

About the author

MOVE is a NGO created in 2009 that believes in entrepreneurship as a way to fight poverty, with presence in São Tomé e Príncipe and Timor. Our goal is to put the entrepreneurship at the service of development and help local entrepreneurs growing its businesses through coaching and advisory services. 

Our success as NGO is a result of the efforts and huge focus made on the quality of our volunteers. MOVE trust in the human capital and in the willpower of young volunteers. In Portugal, we are also a team of young volunteers who work together for the success of MOVE so it can keep developing and making new businesses grow.

What the entrepreneurs say:

"MOVE taught me what isto  be an entrepreneur. In the future, I want to build my own store to help my family." - Cesaltino

"In the Club we learn new cultures and gain new expertise! We want to take advantage of all that knowledge in order to build Timor as a strong and developed nation." - João e Joaninho

Budget and due dates

Our campaign will ensure the continuous monitoring of the entrepreneurship Club and its entrepreneurs until the end of 2017. 

MOVE has budgeted 8000 euros for the project and needs now 3000 euros for the stability of the project. 

The sum collected will finance the accommodation costs of the volunteers and their work as well as cost of the volunteers work together with the entrepreneurs. It is also important to refer that the amount will not pay any personal expenditures of the volunteers.
