Time Out

Por estes dias, a Time Out Lisboa visitou a Calçada do Moinho de Vento! A revista partilhou um pequeno vídeo sobre o MILL, enquanto uma das paragens obrigatórias do roteiro geek por Lisboa da publicação. Nada mal! 

From time to time

Uma vez mais, o MILL rumou a Sul para mais uma iniciativa na Oficina da Criança (Montemor-o-Novo), em parceria com os nossos amigos das Oficinas do Convento. Desta vez, construímos dispositivos de persistência da visão para depois fazermos pinturas com luz. Uma oficina luminosa!

Once upon a time

O nosso workshop Aprende a Soldar + Simon Game foi um sucesso. Casa cheia com gente de todas as idades à procura de uma iniciação criativa no mundo da electrónica. Uma bela forma de entrar no novo ano!

COTEC EUROPE SUMMIT – WORK 4.0 – 7 FEV 2018 @Convento de Mafra

The German Federal Ministry of Labour and Social Affairs coined the term ‘Work 4.0’ in the context of the dialogue – that started early in Germany – on how society will work in the future. ‘Work 4.0’ does not only refer to the new technological developments of Industry 4.0, it stands for all the changes taking place in the whole of the working world and their implications for society.
 
 Indeed, a silent revolution of the working world is being driven by technology, people and companies: we are currently experiencing a deep cultural shift, with new preferences emerging regarding the way in which work is conceived and organised.
 
The debate on WORK 4.0 has expanded with other countries and at the European level. It is currently one of the major priorities of European Commission and member states, through the new skills agenda and other policy interventions, as these issues are not only of primary concern to business leaders and political decision makers, but also to the current workforce, youth and families.
 

Goals

In Portugal, Italy and Spain, as in some other countries of the European Union, the opinion concerning the future of work, in the current context of a fast-growing technological environment, is still significantly sceptical and fearful due, mainly, to a lack of appropriate information. For instance, there seem to be a common assumption that automation will bring upon long-term unemployment, when it can actually promote the creation of jobs upstream and downstream of manufacturing, turning skills and capacities such as planning, coordinating, strategy, informing, directing, managing, and many others, increasingly valuable. Furthermore, the media has been exploring such fears, contributing to spreading biased and misconceived ideas on the matter.
 
 
In addressing the Work 4.0 topic, the goal of the COTEC EUROPE SUMMIT 2018, by gathering, on 7 February 2018, at the Convento de Mafra, the representatives of Portugal, Italy and Spain, COTEC organisations, their stakeholders and EU institutions is to contribute to the strengthening of an emerging dialogue among a wide range of stakeholders and decision makers – business, Unions and other worker representatives, Policy makers, Government Officers, Academics – on how we want to shape the work of the future, in all its breadth and diversity, in a way which benefits people and companies and advances the economy at the European Union level.
 
Hopefully the debate will give rise to the spreading of the appropriate awareness and information and enable all stakeholders to take stock of the current priorities and policy agenda of the EU and COTEC countries and suggest solutions for Europe.

EU-Startups Summit – 24 APR 2018 Barcelona – Pitch Competition: Your ideas are welcome

On the 24th of April, we’re going to host this year’s edition of the EU-Startups Summit at the Auditori Axa in sunny Barcelona. We’ll have inspiring speakers like the King founder Riccardo Zacconi, great networking possibilities in conjunction with delicious food – but most importantly: An exciting pitch competition!
 
Pitch Competition: During the EU-Startups Summit, we’re going to have an electrifying pitch competition with 15 pre-selected startup teams from all across Europe. Our goal is to showcase some of Europe’s best early-stage startups out there. The participating teams will get a lot of valuable feedback from an expert jury of well known investors. The winning startup will receive a prize package worth €50,000+ and will be prominently featured on EU-Startups.com. The concrete prize package of this year’s pitch competition and the prominent investor jury will be announced on the 12th of February.
 
Apply now: If you’re interested in pitching your startup with a 3-minute-presentation in front of an excited audience of 750 people (investors, startup enthusiasts, and the media), please apply here!
  • The application deadline is on the 2nd of March!
Precondition: Your startup should be in pre-seed or seed stage, not older than 2 years, should have raised no VC funding yet (or less than €500K) and has to be based in Europe.
 
Tickets: If you’re planning to attend this year’s EU-Startups Summit, we highly recommend you secure your ticket now! Compared to giant/crowded tech conferences, our ticket prices are quite affordable (€85 for startups, €149 for investors, €195 for corporates) and already include food/drinks during the main event. Tickets can be purchased here!
 
 
I’m sure you know that I’m currently organizing the EU-Statups Summit (April 24, Barcelona). We’ll have cool speakers (etc.), but the real highlight of this event will be our big Pitch Competition with 15 of Europe’s most promising early-stage startups! 🙂

I just published a call for applications. If you know an awesome startup that qualifies to participate in our Pitch Competition, please spread the word. The winner of this year’s Pitch Competition will receive a prize package worth more than €50,000 and a decent amount of attention from investors and the media. Additional info regarding the prize package and our high profile investor jury will be announced soon!

Another great opportunity for your startup would be to apply for the Internet Entrepreneur Prize of the European Rabbis Conference. Applications for 2018 are now open. They offer cash prizes to digital and web-based ventures that have potential to change the world and improve lives. More info can be found here.

You’re working on an AI, mobility or customer experience startup? Drive with Belron, powered by investor and innovation partner L Marks, is back, launching a ten-week startup accelerator running from 30 April to 10 July 2018. The programme will make available a fund of £200,000 to invest in winning startups. Apply now!

Or does your startup help meet the needs of an ageing society? The first ever Centrica Active Ageing Challenge just opened for entries. As well as a share of the prize fund of £100,000, winning startups could also receive the opportunity to access valuable networking and mentorship opportunities that can help startups to grow. Apply now!

Other startup related news and opportunities you might have missed earlier this month: Hephaestus Venture launched a new accelerator in Milan, we published an article which lists 5 reasons why investors love intellectual property, and we introduced you to the deep tech startups which won the EIT Digital Challenge

A Infinite Book, startup finalista na edição passada, começou em 2014 quando Pedro – fundador e CEO – se deparou com 3 problemas a estudar:
1) O lápis não desliza bem no papel, cria um certo atrito;
2) A caneta cria um nível de compromisso que, estando a estudar, não é ideal;
3) A primeira solução, comprar um quadro branco para o quarto, obriga a estudar de pé e não permite levar os apontamentos à professora;

“Porque não pegar num quadro branco e torná-lo portátil? Comecei a testar soluções e em pouco tempo tive um protótipo funcional que pude apresentar a um amigo. A partir daí foi procurar uma fábrica para aperfeiçoar e produzir o meu sonho.”

Curioso(a)? Conheça melhor a Infinite Book qui.
