SWITCH Conference came to an end, but great entrepreneurship events in Portugal live on. We're happy to be partners with Explorers Festival - which we believe is an awesome event if you're looking to networking with key players and learn more new things.
See you there?

One of the biggest startup events in Europe. Speakers include Garrett McNamara, explorers from the European Space Agency, Microsoft, Adobe, Sage, and more.

We'll be around, with other projects and things to keep an eye on.
