BETA-i newsletter, startup news and contests

This story starts back in 2011 when Ricardo Marvão from Beta-i sent an email to Wired, the leading tech magazine in the world, to let them know that Lisbon had a growing startup scene and that they should take a closer look.


the time, the only mention to Portugal in the history of Wired was in a
short article where they briefly mentioned Y Dreams. But, we’ve all
come a long way since then…
Lisbon has given birth to some of the most interesting startups in Europe, such as Uniplaces, Codacy, Unbabel or Talkdesk, Lisbon was named the European Capital of Entrepreneurship, the Web Summit decided to move here, etc.  
However, it was only this January that Ricardo Marvão got an email saying that Lisbon would be featured on Wired’s Top European Hubs for the very first time.
So, I’m excited to tell you that today, Lisbon’s startup scene has been featured on Wired, the leading tech magazine in the world! Read the full article below and check out which Portuguese startups were featured:


On a different note, and since we’re already talking about Lisbon…
