Maputo Startup Week is here, and this year’s mission is clear: to address the challenges that are stifling the growth of Mozambique’s innovation ecosystem. Under the theme “Sustaining Prosperity through Innovation Ecosystems”, the event aims to catalyze a collective effort to promote innovation, bridge gaps and strengthen the local business landscape. Mozambique has immense untapped potential, but faces critical obstacles to realizing its innovation-driven future. Key roles remain unfilled, connections between ecosystem actors are fragmented and the absence of essential grassroots organizations impedes progress. These challenges require urgent attention to propel Mozambique on its path to innovation and sustainability.
