Confronted with COVID-19, my team and I had to move the accelerator to online ASAP. Here are some of the main lessons we’ve learned throughout the preparation process.
Scouting is a fancy word that usually refers to the activity of “looking for people with particular skills”. In the case of Maze X and in this article, this definition is somehow incomplete for us. The way we look at scouting is more on building a relationship with extraordinary founders that are solving the most pressing social and environmental issues.

First annual unit holder meeting of the anticipated Portuguese impact venture capital fund – Mustard Seed MAZE – received its 26 investors in Lisbon.
The first cohort of Maze X ended their acceleration experience at the Change NOW summit in Paris, a 3-day conference where the most promising impact entrepreneurs, investors, corporates and decision-makers meet. Maze X was hosted by its founding partner, the Edmond de Rothschild Foundations and was featured in an exhibition booth, two roundtables and pop-up events.
MAZE sat down with Sara Gonçalves, co-founder of Trigger Systems, to learn how it all came to be.
On week 11, the founders renewed their hope on entrepreneurship with a breakfast with the fearless impact entrepreneur Domingos Guimarães and sat down for a second round of meetings with investors. Adding on to that, the founders benefited from 1-to-1 meetings with Google Adwords expert Sebastian Bartling.
Hospital da Luz Learning Health is Maze X second edition new partner. Maze X is an impact acceleration programme based in Lisbon that works exclusively with tech-based startups whose solutions are contributing to the resolution of social and environmental challenges.
After diagnostic and goal-setting, in the second week of Maze X, founders invested their time in office hours with mentors and experts to sprint towards their weekly goals. Given the diversity of the cohort, the sessions were tailored around specific topics, such as product, comms, funding, tech and strategy.
