## Idea

A weak colimit for a diagram in a category is a cocone over that diagram which satisfies the existence property of a colimit but not necessarily the uniqueness. The dual concept is a weak limit, see there for more.

For example, a weakly initial object in a category, $C$, is such that there is at least one arrow from it to any object in $C$.
