Backpacking around the world to meet entrepreneurs and exciting new business ideas!

Synopsis

At the tender age of 24, André Leonardo – the Azorean from Terceira Island – set off on a year-long journey around the world that would take him to 23 different countries. The goal was simple: he sought to discover joy and energy beyond the debt and crisis that were oh-so prominent back home towards the end of the noughties. Despite the state of the global economy, André was eager to meet positive-minded people who continued to pave their way through business and entrepreneurship. On his global adventure, he encountered inspiring innovators and business leaders from all walks of life, and despite their major differences when it comes to i.a. culture, politics, and economic state, they all had 3 things in common: a positive mindset, the ability to dream and the will to make it happen!
