The Programme “Amadora Empreende” seeks to identify, in association with the youth and people in situations of social vulnerability, individual entrepreneurial initiatives by providing the necessary conditions for developing a business idea. There are two distinct points of action: “A Incubadora Quick” (directed at young people aged 18 to 30 years) and “Quem não Arrisca não Petisca” (directed to people in socially vulnerable positions (women, disabled, immigrants and prisoners and ex-prisoners). This is intended as a program of selective support, which can give strength and exposure to projects that are often overlooked for lack of support of development or financial support.
This initiative aims to provide a special area of information and awareness for the challenges and opportunities faced in education, training and employment, bringing together in one room schools and businesses. During three days, these companies promote their services, projects and best practices, and some publicize job opportunities and accept resumes from those wishing to apply to offers exposed or make a spontaneous application.
