Deep Dive Week

Lisbon, 16-18 October, 2018

Applications Closed. Stay tuned for 2019!

For Analytics and Data startups ready to scaleup

Lisbon is home to an emerging startup ecosystem that has steadily been rising in popularity, with media support and growing scene, ensuring its place in international headlines after becoming the first European Capital of Entrepreneurship in 2015 and then securing the largest entrepreneurship event in Europe, Web Summit, since 2016.

Portugal has going for itself a world-class pool of universities and talent (engineers, designers, managers), fluent in languages and with a very low cost of living. While its economy faltered, a Portuguese diaspora reaffirmed itself abroad, being part of successes such as Feedzai, Talkdesk, Veniam, Unbabel and Musikki.
