THE EVENT

Have you heard about Farfetch, Feedzai, Unbabel, Uniplaces, Talkdesk, Orankl, Portugal Ventures, Caixa Capital?

They’re all Portuguese. It’s time for you to meet the local startup scene.

Here are some of the innovators at #LIS15:

Lisbon Investment Summit is the main seed & early stage startup investment event in Portugal. It’s a startup & innovation event that connects the best international startups with Europe’s top investors & innovators.

But it’s so much more. From live deals on stage to quality networking time with the speakers – including some of the best innovation directors on the planet – it’s definitely going to be a different startup event.

You can count with the Lisbon Challenge Demo Day, where you’ll meet Europe’s up & coming top startups, IE Venture Day and panels powered by Startup Europe and EYIF, among many, many other initiatives.

Plus, on the same week, we’re going to have in town the Volvo Ocean Race and UXLX – one of the biggest user experience conferences in Europe. And, of course, Festas Populares de Lisboa with tasty local food, great weather and amazing surf. Oh, did we mention that Lisbon was considered Europe’s most innovative region this year?

If you want to get know the Lisbon startup scene, meet amazing startups and have a great time – this is it.

Some of the investors who will be there have invested in groupon, Dropbox, Facebook, etsy, Spotify, OutSystems, Prezi, bittorrent, FollowPrice, Codacy, and many more.

AGENDA

Go to many events? So do we.
And because of that, we’re really fed up with the same old structure and presentation formats. Guess you’re too.

We’re working on a different kind of format, to make #LIS15 a completely different experience for you. Check out below for a sneak peek.

In the meantime, we have an open call for live mentoring. If you have a startup and would like to get real mentoring on stage during #LIS15, you can apply here.
