BETA-i Events Newsletter – challenges and hackathons

Hey there,
Warning: This newsletter might be a plagiarism of a 19th century speech by Georgiana Cavendish, Duchess of Devonshire, when addressing the Whig party regarding Women’s rights.

 not really, I’m just fooling around. Unlike Melania Trump, right?
C’mon, that speech belongs to Michelle, Melania, just admit it.

But, despite the fact that this world is kind of falling apart, at Beta-i we’re still trying to hold it together. No Trumps, just pokemons. Here’s everything you need to know from our side:

When one door closes, another one opens. Applications to Lisbon Challenge have just closed but, we have opened applications to Cork Challenge, the accelerator we’re doing with Amorim Cork Ventures in Barcelona. If you have a business that’s using cork find out more about this program here and how you can work with the world’s largest cork producer.

We’re getting ready for the Web Summit and we have great news for Portuguese startups. Startup Portugal, in partnership with the Web Summit, will choose 66 Portuguese startups to exhibit at the world’s best tech conference. Find out more about this competition right here.

Talking about events… we’ll have new events coming up, including Europe’s largest hackathon.

 Pixels Camp, organised by Bright Pixels and Beta-i, will bring 1000 developers to Lisbon. If you’re interested in attending make sure you apply.

Oh, and remember Lisbon’s Startup Guide, the book we’re putting together with Startup Guide World, SAP, Microsoft and Lisbon’s City Hall?
Well, we’ve been interviewing founders and key players from the Lisbon
startup scene and pretty soon you’ll get to know who they are.
