Meet us at Web Summit 2023!

Get ready for Web Summit 2023!

If you’re eager to stay updated on all the latest news, discover incentive programs, and connect with the vibrant Portuguese entrepreneurial community, make sure to visit us at Pavilion 1, Stand E141, from November 13th to 16th.

As last year, we’ve teamed up with Lisboa Unicorn Capital to present the most extensive Portugal stand ever at Web Summit. Join us at our stand and meet our valued partners, including ANI – Agência Nacional de Inovação, Banco Português de Fomento, IAPMEI, AICEP, NEST, Portugal Ventures, and Turismo de Portugal.

Four Pillars

Our stand will be organized around 4 strategic pillars, which group together the vast majority of questions that conference participants seek to have answered: Funding, Innovating, Landing and Scaling.

In each of the 4 corners of our stand, according to these 4 pillars, you will find the programs and initiatives promoted by the entities that make up the Portuguese entrepreneurial ecosystem, both in their national expression and in their municipal dimension.


Don’t miss out on the chance to immerse yourself in the Portuguese ecosystem by participating in the various events held at our stand!
