The Lisbon Incubator


 

Lisbon's Incubator

Startup Lisboa is a incubator that supports the creation of companies and their first years of activity. Founded in 2011 by the Lisbon Municipality, Montepio Bank and IAPMEI – Portuguese Agency for Competitiveness and Innovation, it's a private non-profit association that provides entrepreneurs and companies with office space as well as a support structure. We provide mentoring, link to strategic partners, access to investment, help with business basics, networking activities, and communication services.

We are facilitators

"We do not invest in startups, but we connect them with investors and potential clients," we say. This is an example we use to define the work to which we are daily committed: to facilitate access to investment, mentors, strategic partners and potential customers.

 
Much more than desks, chairs and 4 walls, Startup Lisboa promotes contacts with partners and potential customers. It is, undoubtedly, the epicenter of the new entrepreneurship ecosystem in Portugal. In addition, the dynamism, the people we know, the credibility and the projection that it gives our business makes Startup Lisboa a great place to consolidate an idea and make it a serious company with global ambitions.
— Gonçalo Fortes, Co-founder PRODSMART
 

We encourage the founders to look for what's best around the world to maximize their chances of growth and keeping their link with Portugal. Some incubated startups have teams abroad boosting their growth, including taking part in accelerators. Six teams are part of Seedcamp community, two are YCombinator alumni, for instance, and we're proud of it.

As a private non-profit organisation, our mission is to support the creation of companies and the entrepreneurs in their first years of activity, to promote job creation, and to support the urban, social, and economic vitality of Lisbon's city center.

The Facilities

Rua Da prata Nº 80

Startup Lisboa's HQ is located in downtown Lisbon in a completely renovated 200 year old, 6 story building. It’s a vibrant place where over 40 startups are boosting the entrepreneurship scene in Portugal; each startup has its own office, but there's also a coworking room for smaller teams. Opened in February 2012, the space features a flexible 60 m2 room that can be converted into three 20 m2 meeting rooms that fit up to 10 people each, a dinning room and kitchen, and a social area (lounge) with a kitchenette where you can organize a coffee break or other kind of networking event.

To be incubated at Startup Lisboa, you must Apply.

rua da prata Nº 81


In the summer of 2015, we opened the second building, right in front of the first one. Built in the 18th century, it was renovated to accommodate bigger startups in its two first floors.
The Silver Street (Rua da Prata) has become even more vibrant since entrepreneurs are always crossing the road and chilling out on the sidewalk for a coffee and a Pastel de Nata (famous portuguese pastry) while on a break from work. 

 

 
 

For non-residents, we offer the possibility to rent some of our rooms for meetings, conferences and other kinds of networking events.

 
 

AIRPORT BUSINESS CENTER

Business lounge located at the heart of Lisbon's Airport. Powered by Startup Lisboa, it's ideal for events and

Since Startup Lisboa opened its doors in february 2012 have already supported more than 200 startups. Currently we're incubating 80, half of them are in virtual incubation. Yes, we would like to have more buildings! We'll keep you posted on that. 

 
 
 
I love Startup Lisboa’s environment because it allows us to have contact with other companies that are in the same situation as us. There is a lot of information sharing. In fact, the whole environment is very conducive to generating business.
— Rafael Lemos, Co-founder WIME
