We have designed and delivered a week-long capacity building course on Crowdfunding, Strategy, Campaign Design and Implementation for creative entrepreneurs, Startups and NGOs, in Luanda, Angola, organized by Spanish Embassy in Angola with the support of Brussels Airlines CSR and the institutional cooperation of Ministry of Culture of Angola and the European External Action Service, EEAS, European Commission.

The workshop has had the aim of facilitating the project creation and providing a methodology for planning, designing and implementing a crowdfunding campaign to get projects funded that participants will be able to replicate for themselves and within their networks to multiply the impact.

Antonio Carlos has coached and mentored participants to prototype their projects.


Very competitive and feasible projects have been created on key areas for Angola’s development such as education, technology, tourism, energy efficiency, cultural heritage and creative industries. Participants have focused their projects on achieving concrete SDGs. 


During the whole week it has been created positive environment and energy, team work spirit, lots of creativity and constructive feedback each time a group was presenting their work to the class. It has been a real crowd-sourcing experience!
