The Alma Collective was created by Madalena in 2016

Madalena launched the idea after graduating from Google Campus' Start Up School for Mums. Born in Brussels to a Greek father and German mother she experienced first hand what it means to grow up with a multitude of cultures and languages. This has shaped her life and is now defining her children’s adventures too.
