Startups, independent professionals linked to digital, technological hubs, acceleration programs, and coworkings in Lisbon can have access to a fund of 500 thousand euros in services that work as incentives and aid to innovation.
This is the concept of the new project Lisbon’s Growth Program, created by the City Council of Lisbon (CML) through the Entrepreneurship Website Made of Lisbon, which, in addition to the aid of half a million euros, will also give access to exclusive masterclasses of major tech companies – Amazon Web Services, Google, Hubspot, Microsoft or TransferwiseL.
These incentives will also be offered by these companies, divided into five categories: Cloud, Marketing & CRM, Payments, Tools, and Lifestyle.
This is about free online payment services with no transaction or card fees, large-scale cloud infrastructure, CRM programs, marketing automation, and customer service, among many others.
To have access to these 500 thousand euros, it is necessary to make an application on the Made of Lisboa website, with the choice of the service of the big tech companies to which you want to have access.
On March 4 and 5, the Lisbon City Council will organize clarification sessions in Portuguese and English, respectively, about Lisbon’s Growth Program. The CML also provided an email to answer questions: email@example.com.
