It’s really refreshing to have accelerators in the mix now that can help people understand what it takes to be a startup, how to be a startup, how to speak to investors, how to pitch to investors, how to talk to customers and how to get feedback.
Lisbon Challenge connected us with world class mentors and investors, provided us with the environment to push our startups to the next level, gave us lasting friendships and professional contacts, but most of all, we got to work hard and play harder in the fantastic city of Lisbon!

The true value of the LC lies in its Mentors network, their input and feedback is invaluable.

Lisbon Challenge is like a practical accelerated MBA for entrepreneurs. It exposes your team and idea to a lot of feedback from mentors, prospective customers, media attention (we got 14 media features so far, including TV!) and accelerates the speed of your business by 10 times.
Diogo Ortega, PharmAssitant
Working with all the teams from different countries, different cultures, different points of view, their feedback was extremely important and helpful. Plus, we got 17 media mentions since we got in.
Filipe Freitas, Here We Go
The Lisbon Challenge Accelerator program was extremely valuable for Speecheo. Thanks to the the insane quantity and quality of mentors they have, in addition to the speakers and CEOs that we could reach, we made impressive progress.
Lisbon’s heart is in San Francisco-style startups.
Lisbon Challenge gathers in the Portuguese capital 75 startups, and more than 200 international mentors and investors.
The Lisbon Challenge accelerated 74 early-stage tech startups from around the world (Europe, US, India, Brazil, Chile, and more) and brought the 10 best companies they found to New York City for this program.
Queremos tornar Lisboa a Capital das startups na Europa.
Os resultados muito positivos do Turismo em Portugal só se manterão se continuarmos a inovar e a adaptar rapidamente às constantes mudanças que afetam o comportamento dos viajantes. É por isto que o Turismo de Portugal se associa com muito prazer a mais um Tourism Day do Lisbon Challenge.
O ecossistema de empreendedorismo português evoluiu muito nos últimos quatro anos. E a Europa está atenta.
I can’t recall an event in Portugal with that many investors at the same place.
