Venture Day Lisbon
I am delighted to extend you an invitation to participate in Venture Day Lisbon!
Run in collaboration with Beta-I and with the participation of Startup Europe, this 1 day Iberian conference and start-up competition will take place on July 10th 2014.
Smart equity, an early stage seed fund in Lisbon, have committed an €80k investment to one of the 10 finalists.
Last year’s event was amazing with over 290 attendees, 70 startups, 20 investors, including speakers such as José Martín Cabiedes (Cabiedes & Partners SCR), Carlos Blanco (Akamon), Filipe Blackwood Oliveira (Bloomberg Beta); this year we want to make it bigger and better!
It will be an excellent day to see some Portuguese deal flow!
Please let me know if you can make it.
The day after, July 11th, Beta-i will be organizing its Lisbon Challenge Investors Day, so please save both dates if possible!
