Yesterday was a great day for the Portuguese startup scene. The Road 2 Web Summit event took place in the new hub Criativo do Beato and 66 Portuguese startups were selected to attend the Web Summit in Lisbon this November.
We couldn’t be happier for all those entrepreneurs who worked so hard during all this time, and who have shared with us at Beta-i their challenges and doubts. Today, all that hard work, all those pitch practices and long nights at the office have paid off. Congrats, especially to those who are part of our community, such as Clickly, doDOC, Doinn, GetSocial, Graf.ly, HeartGenetics, Heptasense, Infraspeak, Kinetikos, Knok Health, Magnifinance, Noxidity, Probe.ly, Sensefinity and Tripaya.
However, now, is the time to work even harder to prepare for the world’s largest tech event that will bring 50.000 people to Lisbon, including top investors, executives and well-known entrepreneurs.
For this reason, and knowing that you’ll have to get ready for Web Summit, we’re excited to announce that Beta-i will be running an exclusive bootcamp for the selected startups, as well as Startup Braga, in partnership with Startup Portugal.
We’ll be bringing top experts to Beta-i to help you with all the challenges that Web Summit represents, allowing you to convert the Web Summit into a source of growth for your startup.
We’ll cover topics such as ‘How to Talk to Investors’, ‘How to Hack the Media’, ‘How to Get the Most Out of Networking’ and much more. It will be hands-on and action-driven. For example, we’ll carefully analyse the lists of attendees, including investors, potential clients and media, to help you figure out who you should contact and how.
After this intensive 2 day bootcamp, you’ll be able to set your strategic objectives, define your roadmap, understand the event dynamics and its secret opportunities.
Just like Paddy Cosgrave, CEO at Web Summit, said yesterday at Hub Criativo do Beato:
“You are playing in house, you have all the cards in your hands, you should lead the game! Everyone is going to be wondering what to do in Lisbon and you know the answer, so go and make the most out of it”
See you on the 14th and 15th of October at Beta-i!
