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 dynamic, the people we know, the credibility and the projection that gives to our business makes of 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 to 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-profitable association, our mission is to support the creation of companies and entrepreneurs in their first years of activity, to promote jobs 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 at 200 year old, 6 story building, completely remodeled for this project. It’s a vibrant place where about 40 startups are boosting the entrepreneurship scene in Portugal; each startup has its own office, but there's also a cowork room for smaller teams. Opened in february 2012, the space features a flexible 60 sqm room that can be converted from a workshop and presentation layout into three 20 sqm meeting rooms that fit up to 10 people, and a social area with 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 rehabilitated to accommodate bigger startups in the two first floors that Startup Lisboa is managing.
The Silver Street (Rua da Prata) has become even more vibrant since entrepreneurs are always crossing the road and chilling out in the sidewalk for a coffe and a Nata (famous portuguese pastry) while in a break from work.

 

 
 

For non-residents, we offer the possibility to rent some of our rooms for meetings, conferences and other kind 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 generate business.
— Rafael Lemos, Co-founder WIME
