Located in the Indian Ocean, just off the African coast, Mauritius boasts sapphire waters, gorgeous beaches, hikes with stunning views, a multitude of water sports, boat trips to perfect islets, fabulous botanical gardens, fishing villages and colonial plantations – we could go on for a while. Apart from all that, the island also has a fast growing entrepreneurial ecosystem and is a great spot for location independent professionals.
Mauritius was made first and then heaven; and heaven was copied after Mauritius.

We’ve picked an amazing venue for our first Project Getaway event in Mauritius: the only eco safari lodge on the island. Set along the river, within canoe distance of a gorgeous waterfall and the crystal 22kms lagoon of Ile aux Cerfs, Otentic is a truly special place.
You will be spending three full weeks working and adventuring with hand-picked, like minded people in this inspiring, chore-free environment.
They generate their own energy and sort their waste and harvest rainwater. The place is built exclusively from wood and recycled materials. And it looks like this:
Here is a random pick of the people you’ll meet, network and collaborate with during PG Mauritius this year.
“The inspiration you get from being with such an incredible group of people is invaluable. Add to that the most enjoyable locations and adventure and there is really not much else to ask for!”
“The mentorship I received from professional investors, VCs, and other savvy tech entrepreneurs who made it to the compound regularly was also invaluable. Most importantly, during the month you can develop true friendships that can last a lifetime”
“Project Getaway exceeded all expectations. I still feel inspired by the people I met in 2010. Sometimes I see it as the best investment of my life, both personally and financially”
“So interesting to see the companies that have come out of Project Getaway every year”
