India’s Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Portugal’s Prime Minister Antonio Costa launched Saturday a startup Portal – the India-Portugal International StartUp Hub (IPISH) – in Lisbon.
This is a platform initiated by Startup India and supported by Commerce & Industry Ministry and Startup Portugal to create a mutually supportive entrepreneurial partnership.
IPISH hosts a range of tools and will provide information on the start-up hotspots of Bangalore, Delhi and Lisbon; and on associated subjects, such as policy, taxation, and visa options. It will develop a Go-To-Market Guide to support start-ups.
