Menos Hub

Menos hub is a social organization that was born with the mission of simplifying the creation of micro-businesses to allow anyone to create their opportunities. Our work focuses on creating an ecosystem of support for small entrepreneurs and helping in the whole process of creating and growing their own business, having already worked with more than 120 entrepreneurs (mostly unemployed or underemployed) to create and grow more than 100 projects.

Recently we launched #compraaospequenos movement to support small business in COVID times giving them visibility, tools for better management and helping them to sell via retailers, with 500 members, thousands of supporters, and a wide media coverage.
