Living in an ultra-peripheral region – in this case, Madeira Island - cannot be considered as an impediment to business and personal development. Luís Tavares is 23 years old and thought that the opportunities only arose in large metropolises until he got to know Erasmus for Young Entrepreneurs - a program that allows anyone to develop their business idea in external markets, having the opportunity to learn from older and more experienced foreign entrepreneurs, whilst getting to know different places and cultures.
Like so many young entrepreneurs, Luís was looking for a company that could help him develop this idea until he found GEMAST Consulting, a startup based in the city of Brescia, in Italy. Having ANJE – Portuguese Association of Young Entrepreneurs as one of the local contact points of the Erasmus for Young Entrepreneurs program, Luís was able to contact GEMAST; the match was mutual and his adventure in Italy finally began.
