Lisbon, June 6 & 7 2018

A surprisingly informal and slightly unexpected startup conference

Get our App:


We’re Europe’s surprisingly informal and slightly unexpected startup conference. We bring together seasoned investors, daring entrepreneurs and innovative executives for a 2 day casual, sunny and action-packed event in Lisbon. Our favorite motto is #nobullshit. That pretty much sums up what you can expect from us.

In 2017 we hosted 750 startups, 200 investors, 400 corporates and more than a 100 speakers from over 50 countries, for two sunny days in Lisbon.

Great companies, great investors, great speakers. Lisbon is the place to be in June!

Sean Seton-Rogers, partner PROfounders

Back in 2017

The Hub Criativo do Beato is being born on the Tagus riverside in eastern Lisbon, in a former army factory complex, recognized for its industrial and architectural value.

The 35,000m2 distributed amongst 20 buildings are being renovated to house national and international entities in the areas of technology, innovation and creative industries, that call Lisbon an entrepreneurial open city and a world reference.
