Beta-i events, news, startups, newsletter

We were kicking off SIBS PayForward, our fintech accelerator, and suddenly all those suits weren’t that unusual anymore.  

underdressed or not, I really do love my jeans and sneakers, as well as
fintech, and everything else that’s happening at Beta-i:

Smart things first. I have recently learned more about Smart Cities, and I was seriously impressed, and a little creeped out. Check out this blog-post to find out why, and learn more about Smart Open Lisboa, the startup program that will turn Lisbon into a city of the future – and join us for our Open Doors to meet the partners of the program.

Great challenges second. We have 6 startup challenges for bold entrepreneurs to tackle and test in real life with one of the biggest companies in Portugal. Find out what I’m talking about right here.

Words of wisdom third. I have recently spoken with Marvin Liao, Partner at 500 Startups, one of the top startup programs in the world, about why most startups fail, and which kind of startups he is looking for when he joins us for the Lisbon Investment Summit this June. Read the whole interview.

A big fish fourth. Facebook is coming to Lisbon. The tech giant has made a partnership with Beta-i and PT to organize the first F8 meetup for developers in Lisbon. Join us this April the 18th.   

Last but not least. Lisbon Startup Tour is back this June 5th.  We will take you to the most remarkable startups and entrepreneurial hotspots. Find out what Lisbon truly is and why it’s one of the top startup hubs in the world.

Have a great week and if you’re in Lisbon do yourself a favor and enjoy the 24ºC in the sun.



the one and only Almighty Duchess of Content who made a terrible
mistake the other day and had a ‘francesinha’, a typical dish from her
hometown Porto, in Lisbon. Word of advice: Don’t ruin your life and have
the one and only ‘francesinha’ in Porto.
