Maybe the idea of moving to a small fishing/surfing village southern Morocco is a little crazy. But it’s the best thing to do when you’re building your startup and getting to the entrepreneurship “world”. Here’s why !
Startuping is all about cutting costs. You need every cent you could save to build your business and start your activity. In Taghazout, you’ll find beautiful and cheap places to stay and work with your team but also, you’ll be able to feed your team for 15$ a day ! Everything is cheap in Taghazout or in Agadir comparing with european countries or the US. Internet connection is becoming more and more stable in the area, and cheap (9-10 euros per month for 4Mbps broadband connection)
Relax when you feel exhausted
Building your own startup could be exciting, though it is definitely stressful and challenging. You’ll face different problems you’ll have to solve in order to move on. Sometimes, it could be difficult and you should relax and get away from work a little. In the village, there’s a lot of activities like surfing, swimming (beach is 5 minutes by walk), yoga, trekking, golf and a lot more ! Some of them are free while other activities are not free, but mostly cheap.
Connecting to… the World
Taghazout is located about 40 Km (~ 24 miles) from Agadir Al Massira Airport. For your meetings inside or outside Morocco, you can book easily your trip and be in Europe in 3 to 4 hours.
