We believe that it is time to gain velocity, impetus and scape from inertia. It is time we make our community explode with every incredible thing that has been happening in our surroundings. We realized that sometimes people need a little push in order to create and make great things. Sometimes they just need a model that has already worked somewhere else, or maybe all they need is someone telling that they can do it.
In the science field, Momentum is the name given to the strength capable of putting inertial bodies in movement and accelerating the bodies that are already moving. So Momentum is all about being more, doing more, becoming better. We have searched for ideas that can empower our city and encourage our people to do so.
