Applications For Viveiro de Lojas Now Open

The application period for the 3rd Phase of the Viveiro de Lojas is open until the 25th of September, targeting entrepreneurs/artisans/artists who are without a physical sales space, incorporating, in their products, differentiation, innovation, sustainability, promoting regional identity, and are related to fashion, decoration, health and well-being.

Viveiro de Lojas is an initiative of the Municipality of Funchal aimed at providing a temporary physical location for entrepreneurial business projects, with growth potential, for the commercialisation of products and market testing.

This initiative aims to encourage innovation and entrepreneurship, diversify the local business fabric, foster networking, as well as provide entrepreneurs with a business experience in a physical store, allowing them to test their products on the market for free, for a maximum period of 6 months.

In this sense, business projects interested in participating in this initiative should apply by filling in the form available at www.funchal.pt/candidaturas-a-3-a-fase-do-viveiro-de-lojas/ and also send the mandatory documentation to the electronic address viveiro.lojas@funchal.pt.

It should be noted that, in the transition from the 2nd to the 3rd phase, scheduled for the month of October, the CMF will maintain the interior of the space, as this is a launch pad for companies, some of which already have digital sales sites, for an experience in a physical space that gives them the opportunity of meeting other entrepreneurs, showcasing their work and selling to the general public.

Viveiro de Lojas, has grown in terms of audience, reaching, to date, more than 10,000 visitors, in the last two phases, seeing this growth also reflected in the amount of sales.

Several applications from entrepreneurs are being validated, and the number of interested parties has been increasing, demonstrating the overall positive receptivity of the initiative, which will now in its 3rd phase include the possibility of companies and entrepreneurs to exhibit and commercialise their work in the craft fairs and thematic markets promoted by the initiatives partners.

For any further inquires about the project, please contact the Investor’s Desk, Viveiro de Lojas or through the channels created for this purpose: loja.investidor@funchal.pt / viveiro.lojas@funchal.pt| 291 211 041 / 914 550 589.
