We are a far cry from the zombie lifestyles of some of the bigger tech hubs. We don’t need to be the Silicon Valley of Europe, we can be Lisbon.



In the last few years Lisbon has grown to be one Europe’s coolest startup hubs. It has seen the rise of companies such as Talkdesk, Uniplaces, Unbabel, Aptoide, Outsystems or Feedzai. Featured on WIRED as one of their hottest startup cities, Lisbon has attracted the attention of VCs from all over the world.

Since #LIS16, the game has changed. Community spaces such as Impact Hub, Second Home (London), the Factory (Berlin) have opened or plan to do so. Foreign scale-ups, such as Pipedrive, are opening offices and hiring tech talent in Lisbon. International angel investors are relocating here and VCs are flying more and more frequently to Lisbon. Not even mentioning the thousands of decision-makers who visited the city in November for Web Summit. What are you up to?

Connect with the game-changers who made it happen, meet top investors from all across Europe, understand better investment and learn from those who are driving growth. Get inspired by a surprisingly informal, extremely insightful and slightly unexpected startup conference.
