Can we join Makutano without being a member?

Of course ! The Makutano is open to everyone. This is what we call the “Makutano Community”. It allows you to participate in certain monthly conferences (excluding the annual forum and meetings reserved for members), to receive the newsletter and to be informed in priority. Many students, young business creators, civil society actors, have already joined. Being part of the community is free.

What if you cancel your participation in the forum?

Cancellation by the participant will not proceed to any refund, whatever the cause of the cancellation. An prevented participant may be represented by a replacement at an equivalent hierarchical level, subject to the express agreement of the organizer, who must be informed as soon as possible. No request will be accepted if it occurs less than 14 days before the start of the forum.

Travel and stay?

Participants pay for their travel and their stay except for those who have taken the package with overnight stays.
