We’re soon kicking off our first Project Getaway event in Mauritius – a stunning island in the Indian Ocean, 1200 miles east of the African coast. Have you only heard of Mauritius as the perfect honeymoon destination?

Well, we’d like to help you discover that apart from the white sand beaches, crystal clear water, breath-taking adventure activities and rich biodiversity, Mauritius has a fast growing entrepreneurial ecosystem and is a great spot for location independent professionals.
