EIT Digital and Portuguese accelerator BGI (Building Global Innovators) have released a report titled Portugal Startup Outlook 2019, which showcases the national startup scene at a macro level.
The stakeholders of the report include venture capital firms, policy makers, serial entrepreneurs, deep tech accelerators, and research institutions.
The report highlights the venture capital trends in Portugal in comparison to other countries. It also highlights the market opportunities, employment trends, and the impact of policy on startups, arriving at conclusions about the state of the Portuguese startup ecosystem.
BGI – which is a deep tech startup accelerator – first surveyed the ecosystem to establish what kind of content is relevant to decision makers. BGI team consolidated multiple databases from other sources. Building on the foundations of the report, BGI says it will publish a series of video interviews and podcasts with key stakeholders in the Portuguese startup ecosystem.
BGI is formed by the MIT Portugal Innovation and Entrepreneurship Initiative (IEI) – a collaboration between the University Institute of Lisbon (ISCTE-IUL), MIT Deshpande Center for Technological Innovation, MIT Entrepreneurship Center, and MIT’s School of Engineering.
